6 Amazing State Parks Around Charlotte That Will Blow You Away

One of the best things about living in Charlotte is how centrally located we are to some of North and South Carolina’s most amazing state parks. If you enjoy hiking, swimming, boating or taking nature walks, you’re in luck because there are plenty of places to explore less than a two hour drive from the Queen City. Here’s a list of our favorites, organized from closest to Charlotte to furthest. Hop in the car one of these upcoming fall weekends to get some great exercise and see some spectacular views and scenery!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
