Athletes

If you're an athlete at heart you absolutely must check out the U.S. National Whitewater Center where you can whitewater raft, kayak, climb, zip-line, mountain bike, and hike to your heart's content. Also check out Lake Wylie Kayak Rentals for more fun on the Catawba River. If fishing is your thing, try casting a line at Crowders Mountain State Park or Rankin Lake Park in Gastonia. Try your hand at Disc-Golf at Goat Island. When you’re all done playing for the day wind down at Friends Sports Bar or Glenway Pub both located in beautiful downtown Belmont.
