Spring Break is just around the corner and you may be looking for something to do to keep the kids occupied. And what kid (and adult) doesn’t love a good theme park outing? And despite what you may think you don’t have to go all the way to Florida to have experience the fun. Instead, you should check out one of the 5 closest theme parks to Charlotte, North Carolina.

The 5 Closest Theme Parks To Charlotte North Carolina

Listen if you have the time and money I will not talk you out of visiting the Florida parks. I spent New Year’s visiting several of the major ones and had a blast. But they are expensive and crowded, especially during times when kids are out of school. So instead, why not plan a visit that’s a little closer and perhaps not wall-to-wall crowded?

The 5 closest theme parks to Charlotte of course include one that’s local. But also theme parks in the neighboring states of Tennessee, Virginia, and Georgia.  Some even have on-site hotels and all are in places that offer more fun than just the theme parks so they will make great destinations to spend a weekend or even the entirety of spring break.

Theme parks also have so much more to offer than just rides. Of course, there are always the roller coasters (and each of these parks has some world-renowned coasters) and kid’s rides. Many have waterparks as well. But the 5 closest theme parks to Charlotte also offer a wide array of entertainment, food, and even shopping.

Each of these comes personally recommended by myself (2 of 5) or a trusted friend (2 of 5). All are within a 5.5-hour drive from the city center of Charlotte North Carolina. So give this list a look and have a spring break all your kid’s friends will be jealous of!
