What to do in Charlotte (for us out of towners)

Recommended Posts

Need some advice. 

Banging the wife to TNF this week (coming in mid day Thursday)

bringing my 5 year old son (his first BOA Panthers game) in November 2 (coming in Saturday)

im staying uptown for both trips. 

Was thinking maybe Carowinds for my son (is it too cold early November?)

Im a @RoaringRiot member, so I know that I’ll bring my wife to TNF tailgate. 

Thanks in advance

wildly inappropriate. I hear the Epicenter is cool.

I hope your 5 year old son likes breweries...

Carowinds shouldn't be too cold in early November, but it's only open on the weekends, fyi. 

Downtown, there's Discovery Place, which should hold a 5 year old's attention well enough for a few hours. There's also the Nature Museum down at Freedom Park. Loved that place as a kid. It's about a mile outside of center city, so a quick Uber trip. 

Charlotte is mainly known for it's breweries, massive apartment complexes and for tearing down historic buildings. You can see all three all along the Light Rail system, either in Southend or NoDa. NoDa has more entertainment options, but Southend has axe throwing, so...

If you're going to be in town this weekend, I'd do something like dinner at the Crunkleton, over in the Elizabeth neighborhood. Another quick Uber out of downtown. Get the 36 oz tomahawk ribeye to share. They have great cocktails too. They just started serving weekend brunch, which I would assume is amazing based on everything else I've eaten there.

ECUPantherFan and Bull123 posted in another thread how they really enjoyed heading to Chasers in Plaza Midwood on the weekends. Not a kid friendly bar.

Go to a brewery. That's pretty much all there is to do. Or ride a small train in a North/South line and back and look at the repetitive and soul-less condo buildings

If you're into it, the NASCAR HoF is cool.  For your kid, he might be old enough to enjoy Discovery Place.

True if shopping is your thing.  Could walk around the Dilworth area
