Fodor's Review

This historic site, about 22 miles east of Charlotte, is where America's first documented gold rush began, after Conrad Reed discovered a 17-pound nugget in 1799. Forty-minute guided underground tours of the gold mine are available, as well as gold panning (from roughly late October to early April), walking trails, and a stamp mill.
