It’s been said many times before: Charlotte is a city in search of an identity. But that's far from the truth. Our tagline, “Charlotte’s Got a Lot,” fully encapsulates what our city is capable of achieving. From a wide array of high-quality restaurants and bars that complement our booming brewery and cocktail scene, to a rising profile in the world of art and culture, Charlotte will certainly surprise you. And these 33 activities are sure to give you a full picture of the Queen City.
1. Explore the edible variety of the animal kingdom with a Wild Game Dinner at The Fig Tree Restaurant
Greg and Sara Zanitsch opened The Fig Tree in 2005 with the hope of becoming the best dining experience in the city. Their focus on wine and specialty dinners has created a must eat meal in the annual Wild Game dinner that takes place during the the fall months. Boar, elk, ostrich, they like to switch it up. Pair it with a bottle of red from their 38 page wine list.
2. Take a stroll on the Greenway
With 37 miles of developed pathways and trails, the Greenway is a great place to take a break from the bustle of Charlotte. Enjoy an early morning or late-evening walk or jog on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway near Uptown between Freedom Park and Seventh St. The skyline views are spectacular.
