BEST PLACE TO GET BACK TO NATURE
MCDOWELL NATURE PRESERVE
A repeat winner. A recent visit on a gorgeous N.C. day re-affirmed that McDowell Nature Preserve is a damn fine place to harmonize with Mother Nature. The 1,100-acre park and preserve is straddled astride Lake Wylie and is perfect for summertime picnics, an afternoon on the hiking and biking trails, or a moonlit night in a tent on the campground. There’s also a quirky nature center, to boot.
