Charlotte

— 16 nights

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Hendrick Motorsports Complex and Old Mecklenburg Brewery. Explore Charlotte's surroundings by going to Rock Hill (Glencairn Gardens & Museum of York County), Wiseman's View Scenic Overlook (in Linville) and Historic Brattonsville (in McConnells). There's much more to do: hike along Little Sugar Creek Greenway, have fun and explore at ImaginOn: The Joe & Joan Martin Center, explore the world behind art at Mint Museum Randolph, and get thoroughly spooked out with a ghost and vampire tour.

For photos, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Charlotte online trip maker.
