MUSEUMS & ATTRACTIONS
Carowinds, with its water park, rides and concert series, is a can’t-miss summer attraction.
Straddling the North Carolina-South Carolina state line, Carowinds amusement park offers 60 rides, shows and attractions, including Boomerang Bay, a 16-acre water park. Visit the park from July 21 through Aug. 17 as it teams up with Susan G. Komen’s local chapter to raise awareness for breast cancer research. During “Carowinds for the Cure,” guests can purchase tickets at a reduced price, with $1 from each sale benefitting Komen Charlotte.
