Fodor's Review

This 100-acre amusement park, 15 miles from Charlotte, has dozens of rides and attractions. Star entertainers and touring shows perform at the Paladium Amphitheatre and Carowinds Theatre. Check Carowinds's

website for current hours and for deals. It's usually cheaper to buy tickets online than at the gate.
