1. Enjoy the Greeneries

What’s better than spending your summer day under a tree with a shade that will protect you from rays of sun? The good thing is Mecklenburg County has a lot of parks option. Pack your picnic bag and go straight to Freedom Park, Hornets Nest Park, and other nature sites that you can choose based on your location. Enjoy the greens by walking, running, biking, or even hiking.

You can choose from several camp activities such as hiking trails, picnics, fishing, and more. The McDowell Campground has 56 campsites with complete facilities.

3. Give Back

Why not spend this summer giving back to society? Mecklenburg County opens several volunteer opportunities.
