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.

And it doesn't end there: have some family-friendly fun at Escape Kings, get curious at Discovery Place Science, examine the collection at Carolinas Aviation Museum, and identify plant and animal life at The Lazy 5 Ranch.

Land of the Sky

Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.

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.
