Thinking of a few days in Charlotte in mid May for my 70th birthday coming from the cold NorthEast. Is the Historic District strongly recommended or are there other areas. Flying in and could rent a car, if advised. We are healthy and youngish and love local charm as opposed to big city lunacy but have never been to Charlotte.
My wife & I shall be in Charlotte for two days in August as our son will be starting at UNC so just wondered what there is to see & do for 'tourists'?

Is there transportation from the Amtrak station to CLT?
I'm going to be at the convention center for a few days, but can't handle the prices of the hotels nearby. I won't have a car, so could you recommend a neighborhood outside of the pricey area where I can find a reasonable ($55-85)hotel and either a bus, shuttle, or cheap taxi ride in and out of downtown each day? I was originally thinking of the University area, but that looks maybe a bit far away. But I've never been to Charlotte, so I'm relying on the experts.
Thanks so much for your help!
I want to go Myrtle beach for a couple days but I have absolutely no idea how to get there from Shelby. I don't have a car so does anybody know where I can find a bus that goes there?
I'm going to be in Charlotte in a few weeks and I was wondering if anyone knew any good vantage points where I can take some good pictures of downtown. Any streets, parks, parking decks, or bridges would be very helpful.
Attempting to atttend Southern Living Show in Charlotte. Show date is three weeks out, Gold and Diamond Status, multiple hotels saying they "have blocks of rooms reserved for "groups"(unknown entities), but will have to drive from Rock Hill, SC. in order to go (could be 40 min. away). This is Charlotte for goodness sake, not Pole Cat, Arkansas!?!
Why are there not more hotels accepting pets inside Charlotte? Called Chamber, Visitor Bureau, Southern Shows Office - All not helpful. Bad Business in Charlotte! Bad!
I am travelling with my husband and three kids aged 13, 10 and 8 to the U.S. We are flying to Charlotte and then need to catch a connecting flight 6 hours later. I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced this with kids and if there is anything for them to do at the airport to keep them entertained. Otherwise I need to find some things to take with me to stop them getting bored! Many thanks....
Is it easy or safe to walk from the Charlotte Amtrak station to the bus terminal on West Trde Street?
I'm driving from western New York to South Carolina and probably taking I-81 and I-77 in part to avoid Washington. However, I'm afraid the timing will have me in Charlotte at rush hour. Maybe I can arrive before it hits. Would traffic on I-77 southbound be heavy between 3 and 5 p.m.? I'm thinking that's largely the reverse commute but then when we pass the city proper we'd be in the heading-home direction. Any advice? Thanks!
We are driving down from Charlotte to Atlanta. We want to know what are the places enroute to Atlanta or around Atlanta. Although we have noted down few places within Atlanta to visit, let me know if anything I should not miss to see.
In last minute, I have to travel from Charlotte to New York. I found the air fares very expensive and grehound bus/Amtrak equally expensive. I have used China town bus tours () earlier and found good. When I checked there is a "Sky Express" bus service operating bus from Charlotte to NY for30 one way. Price is excellent but wanted feedback from someone who have used this on reliability, safety and comfort. Any reply will be useful.

My husband will be headed to Charlotte in March for a business trip (entire week) and I was considering tagging along, but am curious as to what there is to see/visit in Charlotte. I know it's got a lot of southern charm, but what can I do all day while he is in meetings? I am 52, not really into shopping but do enjoy museums, concerts, local history. Also, what is the weather like in mid-March? I appreciate your input. Thank you.
Would be grateful if any locals or fellow travellers could recommend various forms of transport between Charlotte NC and Dallas Tx. Timescale is not important, price is more so, but so is safety!
Train seems complicated, i.e via New Orleans, San Antonio etc.
