A great way to begin your visit to Charlotte is by heading into the centre of the city, known as Uptown. Here is where much of the city's businesses and large offices are located, as well as museums, hotels, bars, restaurants and sporting venues. To learn a little about the area, drive your hire car over to the Levine Museum of the New South. A museum dedicated to the history and evolution of the southern cities and cultures, you will no doubt gain an insight into how the area became what it is today. If you are travelling with children, a great attraction nearby is Discover Place, a museum designed for children with great displays on science and history.
For lovers of art, Charlotte has a great number of galleries as well as outdoor displays to keep you occupied. Jump in your hire car and head northeast of the city centre, and check out the district known as NoDa, named after North Davidson Street, the main street in the area. A highly regarded centre for the arts, you will find many great attractions here such as the Centre of the Earth Gallery. The Arthouse, and Hart Witzen Gallery. Be sure to also pay a visit to the nearby UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens, located on University City Blvd, where you will find many rare plants, as well as recreated rainforests.
For some fun in the great outdoors, Charlotte offers visitors many great nearby places to visit. To the north you can visit Lake Norman, a huge expanse of water often called an "inland sea", which is highly popular for boating and fishing, and just a short drive west from the city you will find Lake Wylie, which is particularly worth a visit during Autumn, when the trees around the lake turn beautiful shades of red, orange and brown.
