Looking to book a family vacation but just can’t seem to land on a good spot? The Great Wolf Lodge is a resort and indoor waterpark located in Concord, NC. It is only about a two-hour drive from the Upstate, and the kids are going to flip when they hear all about the Great Wolf Lodge.
Not only was the place clean, it was stocked with just about everything you could possibly need for an overnight stay. From a bottle opener and cooking spices in the kitchen, to a nice entertainment center stocked with DVDs in the living area, to even travel-size toiletries in the main bathroom: they had it all.
The minute I turned into the tree-filled circular driveway of the Swamp Rabbit Inn in Travelers Rest, I couldn’t help but sigh in relief. I was taking my team for a well-deserved break and just the sight of the large, beautiful front porch was enough to make me slightly giddy with the thought of relaxation.
Sometimes I feel like I live to shop. It can be a problem, but it can also be kind of fabulous. There are plenty of amazing shops and boutiques around the Upstate, but sometimes you just want to head to a big city for some big shopping. Lucky for us Upstaters, Charlotte is only a short drive away!
