In and around Charlotte

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Charlotte for 4 days in early April and are looking for ideas. We're staying uptown, will have a car, and don't need to do anything touristy. We're really coming for the weather, the scenery, and the food.

In Charlotte, we are looking for interesting neighborhoods to walk around -- could be for architecture, funky shopping, parks, or just a great vibe. Favorite things are farmers markets, streets with locally-owned shops and restaurants, public art, local artisans, local brewpubs. Local ice cream. :-)

We plan to drive down to Summerville, SC for the FlowerTown festival -- stumbled across it by accident about 10 years ago and always thought it would be fun to go back. Any great side trips between Charlotte and Charleston?

We also plan a pilgrimage to the Lexington area for BBQ, and welcome any input on places to try, or stops to make along the way. We favor the mom and pop places and dives -- don't need anything fancy. Just good.

Thanks!
