Zip, cruise and sip every Hump Day




Next to your list of work meetings, deadlines and hellish expense reports, pencil in zip-lining, campfires and booze cruising for your Wednesday tasks. Then, thank the U.S. National Whitewater Center for taking the sting out of your work week. The USNWC offers opportunities for hump day adventuring, including the Zipline & Dine Tour and Microbrews Cruise held every Wednesday evening (and sometimes Fridays).

Guests can choose to fly high on the Zipline & Dine Tour, where guides take you on five zipline runs and two roped bridges before returning to basecamp for a gourmet fireside meal. Or, if you prefer the low and slow route, opt for the Microbrews Cruise, where you can kayak along the Catawba River before enjoying craft beer and dinner by the campfire on Hawk Island. Both tours offer sunset views of the 400-acre facility and dates last through the fall.

Nature plus booze plus food equals Wednesdays that don't suck anymore. Move over, Thursday!

Check the website for dates and details. Tickets for the Zipline & Dine are $75 per person. The Microbrews Cruise is $55 per person.
