It's time to start planning the first unofficial kickoff to summer, Memorial Day Weekend! Planning a fun-filled weekend can be a little stressful, so we are here to make planning a bit easier!
If you’re looking to stay in the area check out all that the Anne Springs Close Greenway has to offer. With over 2,000 acres of lakes, forest, and pastures there is a lot to do including horseback riding, kayaking, and hiking trails that offer beautiful views! For those that have furry children, make sure to visit the Mary Warner Mack dog park, which has over 12 acres of natural space for dogs of all sizes to play.
Grab the family and head to Carowinds for an action packed weekend. JoyFest will be held on Saturday, May 26, so if you are into gospel music be sure to snag a ticket. On Sunday and Monday Carowinds will pay tribute to our brave military men and women by offering FREE admission with a valid military I.D.
