When the weather has been cool and rainy, and we've been stuck inside at home, we like to plan some cool day trips close to home.
Here are some of our favorite places to visit...
Discovery Place Kids
Discovery Place KIDS are children’s museums featuring developmentally-appropriate experiences that encourage interactive learning through play. By participating in rich play integrated with imagination and fun, kids explore their world, discover how to get along with others, test their skills and muscles, try out new ideas and develop confidence.
Huntersville and Rockingham, NC
North Carolina Zoo

History comes alive with non-stop, day long entertainments, arts and crafts, games and rides, jousting knights on horseback, feasting and so much more! Time travel to the greatest party since Camelot! Huzzah!
These are only a few of our favorite spots, and they are relatively close to home. Of course, there are other places we love to visit, which are further away. Stay tuned for even more great NC Day Trip ideas!
