Usually I don’t overshare my weekends because they are relatively low key, especially lately. However, this Saturday we decided to switch things up once we heard about Tuckfest happening at Charlotte’s National White Water Center. We grabbed breakfast and were there by 10.
For those that haven’t been, the US National White Water Center is incredible! It was used to help train Olympic athletes, but now it’s an outdoor lovers Disney World. It is HUGE and they have white water rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, a ropes course, biking and hiking trails, zip lining, an obstacle course and great food and beer selections.
For the festival they also had live music, competitions and so much going on that we easily filled up the entire day.
Even Hailey flew right through her regular naptime without flinching because she was having such a good time.
We took a midday break in one of the many hammock spots set up around the festival and between the shade and breeze, I could have napped for a solid few hours.
It’s easy to forget about the amazing places located near you, but Charlotte has some awesome attractions. I highly recommend checking out the White Water Center is you ever come to town.
Though I was bummed to miss out on the fancy beer selection, Hailey and I made do with frozen lemonade, which tasted amazing in the 80 degree heat.
All in all, it was such a fun day that I just had to share it! I loved seeing how many kids and dogs were there- it really is a great spot for the whole family. I know Koda was more than stoked to be included in the fun!
