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.
Take a break from the city and head to Cowpens National Battlefield and Crowders Mountain State Park. Step off the beaten path and head to Tanglewood Park and Richland Creek Canopy Tours. Change things up with these side-trips from Charlotte: Kersey Valley Spooky Woods (in Archdale), God's Acre (in Winston Salem) and Kings Mountain National Military Park (in Blacksburg). There's lots more to do: learn about winemaking at Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery, LLC, hike along Reedy Creek Nature Center and Preserve, steep yourself in history at Reed Gold Mine, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Norman North Carolina.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, read our Charlotte travel itinerary planner.
