Kid Friendly Attractions in Charlotte

Take the Kids to Carowinds or Explore Hickory


Charlotte vacations with the kids

Visit Charlotte With the Whole Family

Keep the entire family happy on your trip into Charlotte – the Queen City has a range of options to explore, each fit for every member of the family.

From an afternoon spent at the Historic Latta Plantation in Huntersville, just north of downtown Charlotte, to an exciting day at Carowinds, Charlotte’s thrilling amusement park – wear comfortable shoes and keep your camera ready.

Head north from Monroe into Huntersville and check out the Historic Latta Plantation. Built in 1800, this relic is 742 acres of pristine central North Carolina landscape.

Officially located within the Latta Plantation Nature Preserve, the plantation is a non-profit seeking to provide visitors a glimpse of life in the 1800s. Displays, hands-on activities and plenty of beautiful natural scenery make it a great visit for all.

If the kids are into rides and plenty of sunshine, head to Carowinds. Dubbed the “Thrill Capital of the Southeast,” Carowinds is not far from Hickory or Gastonia.

Enjoy this amusement park featuring much of the traditional fare – a bumper car ride named Dodg’ems, a rafting the rapids ride named Rip Roarin’ Rapids, and be sure to gaze at the entire 360 degree view of Charlotte in the Carolina Skytower which travels 262 feet in the air.

During late summer and into the fall, take the family to a Carolina Panthers football game at Bank of America Stadium. From the sports fanatic, to the casual Sunday afternoon lounger, the whole family will enjoy all the hard hits, touchdown runs, and celebrations of the NFL.
