Charlotte is kinda cool . . . it was never anything "special" - never the Capital of the Confederacy, never the HQ
for Boeing, and, most all the historical buildings downtown have been bulldozed (including the train station) for 'redevelopment' . . . . but, it's got some interesting bars and restaurants. If you like Oysters, Vinnie's is the ticket! Oysters and beer. If you like auto racing, you're right in the middleof NASCAR HQ
. . . most major race teams have some sort of complex around Charlotte. And most offer tours. The airport is great - for a small city airport, it's awesome. beyond security you'll find a huge glass atrium and rocking chairs - and generally someone playing the piano . . . if you like to water ski then Lake Norman is your friend.
If you're looking for 'something exciting', Charlotte ain't the place. It's a pretty mellow city.
I used to live in Davidson, about 15 miles north of Charlotte and my info is 5 years old . . .
