                  Places To Go In Charlotte

                  Your beloved American Gothic novel finds its perfect visual representation in South Carolina, where Southern hospitality and warmth relax around every charming corner. Book your Charlotte hotel and explore this new world via an array of attractions, then balance out the wonder of new things with a peaceful hike on one of the area’s many trails. Are you ready? Then come, traveler, and take in “Queen City.”

                  Things to Do in Charlotte

                  Begin your Charlotte vacation with a walk to mountainside waterfalls. Climb the stones of Chimney Rock to savor the 75-mile view, then head to Crowders Mountain to ascend its peak. This is a remarkable place to visit in any season; fall dons her plumes of color here, and spring weaves honeysuckle crowns. Biking and lakeside beaches invite sunshine-filled meditation sessions. Find your inner Zen as you meander hidden natural pathways; isn’t this what vacation is really about?

                  Bring the outdoors into town by planting a seed: Charlotte’s residents intend to have 50 percent of the town shaded by 2050, and they’re only an orchard away. Take this intention a step further by joining in on an event for dirt-digging, where you can meet locals who love the soil they live on. As you make friends, they’ll likely share with you many things to do in Charlotte, NC, and show you their favorite hole-in-the-wall bistro after your trowels are tired.

                  What’s that delicious scent in the air? It’s the sweet tang of the local barbecue, often found inside a sandwich or spread over fried pickles. The Old Mecklenburg Brewery offers pints with oversized soft pretzels; balance these German delicacies with Parisian fare from the French Quarter and declare yourself worldly.

                  The culinary adventure continues with a country-fried fix at the 1955 drive-in diner. South 21’s curb service long ago relinquished roller skates to a time of black and white photos, but their milkshakes and hush puppies still make history.

                  Trade in a comfortable food coma for an adrenaline rush at Carowinds Amusement Park. But after hours of excitement, seek out things to do in Charlotte, NC that don’t require you to hold on for dear life. The antique mall hides vinyl records and toile-covered teapots, and the galleries at the Mint Museum Uptown will leave you ready to explore your own creativity.
