Captain Phil Rizz is fabulous. Lake Wylie is gorgeous. My sisters and I were having a mini reunion and wanted to spend a day on the lake. Weather was perfect and Phil was most accommodating, waiting an hour until the clouds cleared off, giving us a lovely pontoon ride exploring the lake, taking us to a shallow area to swim, and giving us a most gentle (yet exciting for us!) tube ride. He was professional yet friendly and I would recommend his service most highly. He is very safely conscious and I think you wouldn't go wrong by using him for his fishing services as well! As an added bonus, we saw a group of deer on the shore as well as blue heron.

This was an extremely enjoyable evening featuring good talent, good food, and very friendly people. My experience certainly was not what some of the negative reviewers had to say.

Yes, this is run by a Christian organization. They make no secret about that, for it is plainly stated on their website. So if you are surprised by the "religious" tilt to the show, you can only blame yourself. But hey, this is not a bad thing.

Contrary to what was reported, there was no asking for "donations", no proselytizing.Just good old fashioned wholesome fun.

The food was actually better than most "Dinner Theater" fare. The word delicious comes to mind, and the service, provided by the cast of the show, was among the most polite and effective Iv'e ever seen.

I am so glad I found this place. They offer about four or five different shows throughout the year, and I plan on going to each and every one of them.

Wonderful holiday outing between Christmas and New Years with the family (grandparent, young kids). Excellent size (not overwhelming). Friendly staff. Fun "passport" stations for kids. Trains in orchid building particularly magical (seasonal display). We live in Roanoke, VA, and currently have an annual membership we're enjoying despite the drive. Sincerely doing a good job attracting new audiences.

Anne Springs Close Greenway

Nestled amid beautiful lakes and hardwood forests, the Anne Springs Close Greenway is a natural preserve more than twice the size of Central Park, minutes south of Charlotte in Fort Mill, SC. Its 2,100 acres serve as a natural buffer from urban development and provide a wide open space for countless activities – from hiking, biking and horseback riding to picnics, kayaking and more. The land has ties to the Catawba Indians and the Civil War and has been permanently preserved for public use. The Greenway contains native plants and animals, historic buildings, a 40 mile network of trails, a recreation center and facilities for weddings and other special events. As a non-profit organization, it depends on memberships, program fees as well as private donations to support annual operations. Main entrances include Lake Haigler, Dairy Barn, Adventure Road and the Recreation Complex, all of which provide additional information and trail maps.

Reviewed By Craig B - Avon, CT

We enjoyed a pleasant morning walk around Lake Haigler and part of the Wagon Trail. While it was $5 for each of us, we felt it was worth it to experience the outdoors here. It was a weekday, so we had the place pretty much to ourselves. There are clean unisex bathrooms and plenty of parking. The trails are well-maintained and the scenery is great.

My wife and I rented a wave runner for half a day and had a great time. The equipment was in excellent shape and the service was friendly. We took turns driving / riding and stopped every now and again to swim. There was plenty of lake to explore as well. We would certainly recommend Wylie Watercraft to a friend.
