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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Charlotte: Uwharrie Crystalline (in Seagrove), Zipline (in Lake Lure) and North Carolina Zoo (in Asheboro). There's much more to do: test your team's savvy at Escape Kings, engage your brain at Discovery Place Science, browse the collection at Billy Graham Library, and see the interesting displays at NASCAR Hall of Fame.

To find maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Charlotte trip maker site.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Charlotte. In July, daily temperatures in Charlotte can reach 90°F, while at night they dip to 70°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Thu) early enough to drive to Asheville.
