Quick Trips

Charlotte is more than just banks and an airline hub

Many a traveler moves through Charlotte; fewer stick around. For some, it’s just a busy hub airport, visited occasionally while taking advantage of US Airways’ often reasonable fares to other places. We know it as an important financial capital, we know it’s not Charleston, or Asheville, or any other popular destination located within striking distance.

Why stick around and get to know the Queen City? Out of plenty of reasons, here are 10 good ones to get you started.

For some art at street level, head up Davidson Street to Charlotte’s artsy NoDa neighborhood. Here, a twice-monthly art crawl — held on the first and third Friday of every month, starting at 6 p.m. — takes place in and around some of the city’s finest galleries. Soak up the vibe at Dolce Vita, a low-key wine bar and neighborhood gathering spot.
