Charlotte Hotels

Charlotte is the largest city in the state of North Carolina, a flashy metropolis soaked in culture and heritage. Its cityscape is a mix of glitzy high rises and buzzing restaurant-lined streets, leafy university campuses and quiet fountain-studded parks. Charlotte boasts an assorted mix of museums and galleries, ranging from family-friendly science centers to modern art exhibits - there’s a bunch of performing arts venues too. With such a variety of activities and attractions, Charlotte makes for a perfect city break.

Things to see

Start your sun-kissed Charlotte day by visiting a couple of its museums and galleries. Art-fiends will first want to check out the Mint Museum. Established in 1936, the Mint’s collection has grown to include Ancient, Modern, and Contemporary American artworks, from old-world decorative ornaments to vibrant oil paintings. After, families will want to head over to Discovery Place, a kid-themed science museum flush with wonderful and whacky exhibits, ranging from hands-on chemistry experiments to jaw-dropping IMAX shows. For even more family fun, visit the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Kids will get a kick from learning about the cool cars and playing on the racing simulators. Unwind in the afternoon at the Billy Graham Library, a museum and restored historic home based in a rolling, grassy park. The library belonged to 20th century evangelist Billy Graham, and today you can tour this key heritage landmark and learn about his life and works.

Where to stay

If you’re after the quintessential big-city Charlotte experience, then stay in Uptown, the cultural, retail, and nightlife core. Uptown is an electrifying area, bursting with bouncing bars, welcoming restaurants, and inspiring theaters. Spend your hassle-free days touring the museums, or splurging in the snazzy boutiques. For an eclectic artsy neighborhood full of hip hangouts, street-level galleries, and off-beat vintage stores, stay in NoDa, a small historic district northeast of Uptown. Families traveling with tiny tots might consider staying in South End, a quiet affluent area brimming with neighborhood parks and old-fashioned ice cream stores.
