Carowinds.jpgIf you’re asking yourself, what am I going to do while the kids are out of school this summer? Look no further than Charlotte’s own amusement park: Carowinds. Carowinds Amusement Park has been welcoming visitors through their gates since its opening back in 1973. You can find Carowinds off of Interstate 77 at the NC/SC border. The park is a great place to spend the day as they are home to roller coasters, family rides, thrill rides and rides made just for kids. You’ll even find a huge waterpark called Carolina Harbor to cool off during those hot summer days.

What can I look forward to at Carowinds Amusement Park?

If you are looking for a thrill, find your way to the Thrill Zone. This area of the park is home to rides like the Ripcord, Drop Tower, Scream Weaver, and the Slingshot. One of the park’s newest thrill rides is the Fury 325. It is known as the 5th tallest coaster in the world and reaches speeds up to 95 mph.

There is no shortage of great coasters to ride during your day at Carowinds. The Nighthawk, Vortex, and the Flying Cobras are just a few to look for. For more family friendly rides, you will like the Carolina Skytower, Rip Roarin’ Rapids, the Scrambler, Do-Si-Do and the Yo-Yo.

Kids have a place to call their own at Carowinds known as Planet Snoopy. Kids’ rides include the Flying Ace Balloon Race, Peanuts Pirates, Lucy’s Crabbie Cabbie, Woodstock Gliders, and Snoopy’s Junction. You might even catch a Peanuts character or two walking around to meet.

Carowinds is home to more than just fun rides. There are plenty of shows all over the park sure to keep you entertained. The Catawba Creek Duo, Charlie Brown’s Hoedown, Cirque Imagine, Decades Live, and Luminate! Party in TWO States are acts to look out for! Grab a bite to eat and take a breather while watching some of these great performers.

Speaking of food, there is definitely no shortage of good eats to be found during your visit. Favorites like funnel cakes, Auntie Anne’s pretzels, Chick Fil A, Cinnabon, Sweet Frog’s, and Dippin Dots are all good choices. But if you are looking for something more, there are other great places to grab a bite like Burrito Café, Chickie & Pete’s Sports Grill, Harmony Hall Marketplace and Papa Luigi’s.

Events are held at the park throughout the year!

Depending on what time of year you visit Carowinds Amusement Park, there are many special events that take place. Coming up this month is the park’s Rock the Park on June 10th.

hello-sailor-restaurant-cornelius.jpgThis summer’s newest Lake Norman hotspot is Hello, Sailor. Though an opening date has yet to be announced, we are counting down the days to this new Cornelius restaurant. There is no denying that Joe and Katy Kindred are amazing at what they do. We love Kindred Davidson which has been open since 2015 and is also within walking distance of Davidson Village Inn. We cannot wait to be toasting cocktails at their newest concept Hello, Sailor restaurant Cornelius this summer.

Have dinner or relax with a drink at Hello, Sailor!

Hello, Sailor will take over the former Rusty Rudder location in Cornelius. The location is situated on the shores of Lake Norman so you are sure to enjoy beautiful views and sunsets with your dinner. The 4,000 square foot space will feature inside seating for 70 guests and multi-level decks outside on sunny days. Hello, Sailor will also feature 20 boat slips for an upfront parking spot for those arriving by boat.

Inspired by a nautical tattoo, Hello, Sailor is the perfect name for this waterfront location. With this fun name, comes a unique drink and dinner menu. The Kindred’s are going for a modern, upscale fish camp vibe for their new space. The menu, like Kindred Davidson, will feature local, quality ingredients and items like fresh seafood, burgers, ribs, and sandwiches like prime Rib. The Kindred children are even getting in on the menu making and adding the perfect chicken tenders to the kids menu.

Sticking with the fun and funky vibe, the tiki bar outside will offer guests frozen mixed drinks, beer on tap and wine by the bottle and glass. When it comes to the inside of Hello, Sailor, Katy is looking to keep things modern, with fun bright colors and a very funky Palm Springs atmosphere.

Eater.com has named Hello, Sailor as one of “the most anticipated restaurant openings of 2017.” The goal of Hello, Sailor is to be a place for everyone, not just the lake crowd. Being a family of 5 themselves, the Kindred’s welcome families with kids to come out and enjoy dinner at their new restaurant. Joe and Katy knew they wanted a place that all types of patrons would enjoy year round.

After dinner and drinks, return at the end of the day to our beautiful Inn!

Anglers from both near and far travel to Lake Norman for the chance at catching a record-winning catfish, crappie, striped bass, largemouth bass, and yellow and white perch. Catch and release methods are encouraged, so be sure to have your fun and then throw ‘em back to help conservation efforts.
