Families heading to North Carolina for their 2014 family vacation have a lot to look forward to. Eccentry Holidays Sunny Isles knows that there are plenty of great family-friendly attractions found throughout the state, all of which offer families a great chance to spend some quality time together.
1. Carowinds Theme Park
One of the biggest attractions that the state has to offer is the Carowinds Theme Park. Eccentry Holidays points out that at Carowinds, guests will find exciting thrill rides, fun carnival-like games, and some great live entertainment. Younger kids will love the Peanuts-themed portion of the park, which features Snoopy's Junction Train Ride, the Flying Ace Balloon Race, and meet-and-greets with various members of the Peanuts gang. Older kids and parents will enjoy the more intense thrill rides the park has to offer. For example, the Drop Tower sends guests plummeting 100 feet at 56 miles-per-hour, while the Rip Cord launches guests 153 feet in the air and features a 50-foot free-fall.
2. North Carolina Zoo
Eccentry Holidays Sunny Isles also points out that the North Carolina Zoo is a great option for families interested in checking out some animals. From giraffes to bears, the North Carolina Zoo has it all. With over a dozen natural habitats, guests will have plenty to see when they come to visit. The African section of the park features the Watani Grasslands area where guests can observe the elephants and rhinos, and then there is the Kitera Forest zone where the chimpanzees can be found. In the North American section of the zoo, travelers will find otters, bobcats, bears, wolves, roadrunners and plenty more.
3. Greensboro Children’s Museum
Another great family-friendly attraction that Eccentry Holidays Sunny Isles is directing parents to look into is the Greensboro Children's Museum. Focused on educating through entertainment, the children's museum is a great way to spend the day with younger kids. Children can learn all about sciences like nutrition and economics while playing pretend in The Market and Pizza Pan exhibits. In the Get Out & Play area, kids can climb aboard a replica fire truck, test their skills at crossing a rope bridge, and even get into the cockpit of a child-sized airplane.
