Anne Springs Close Greenway
Nestled amid beautiful lakes and hardwood forests, the Anne Springs Close Greenway is a nature preserve more than twice the size of Central Park, minutes south of Charlotte in Fort Mill, SC. Featuring 2,100 acres and 40 miles of trails, the Anne Springs Close Greenway was dedicated to the public in 1995 to serve as a natural buffer from urban development and a place for countless activities – from hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, to picnics, kayaking and more.

Carowinds is the place where the Carolinas come together. Located off I-77 (Exit 90) at the NC/SC border, the park touts world-class thrill rides, live entertainment, authentic Carolina cuisine and more. Guests can feel the sting of Fury 325, the world’s tallest and fastest giga coaster. In 2016, the all-new Carolina Harbor waterpark celebrates the culture of the Carolina coast with new attractions for everyone and is included with admission. And compete in an epic battle to find the Golden Gnome in the world’s first intra-active 3-D digital experience, Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare 3Z Arena. Visit carowinds.com for more information.
