The Queen City

A rapidly growing city in central North Carolina, Charlotte is the state's largest urban center and a major regional hub for finance, industry, technology, and entertainment.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Billy Graham Library and NASCAR Hall of Fame. Explore Charlotte's surroundings by going to North Carolina Zoo (in Asheboro), Ben Owen Pottery (in Seagrove) and Columbia (Sea Lion Landing & Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Garden). There's much more to do: get your game on at Escape Kings, get curious at Discovery Place Science, look for all kinds of wild species at The Lazy 5 Ranch, and stroll around Freedom Park.

For reviews, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Charlotte trip itinerary planning site.

On the 16th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and then take in the exciting artwork at Lexington Glassworks.
