Charlotte’s summers start early, crank up to swamp-level humidity and funk before mid-June, and regularly extend into late October. But winter finally comes hard in December, becoming even brutal and dreary (from a Charlotteans’ view, anyhow) by January or February. So, what is a resident of a mostly sunny Southern city to do? Fret not, for Charlotte has myriad options for getting outdoors during these colder winter months. Leave your couch potato ways at the door, put Netflix on hold, and bundle up. It may be chilly outside, but there’s so much to do in the Queen City.
