In its July issue, Shape magazine includes Charlotte in its list of “5 Cities with Big Outdoor Appeal,” a list of cities that offer more than just a great place to exercise. Outdoor activities suggested for Charlotte include the U.S. National Whitewater Center and golf at Ballantyne Resort, home of the Dana Rader Golf School. The Public Art Walking Tour offers a great way to see the city and still get a great walk in. In addition, the article recommends staying at Ballantyne Resort for their spa services, three jogging paths and resistance pool.
