Spring into the Sunshine Charlotte

Full of artists, delicious foods, trendsetters and so much more, Charlotte is a city that is growing and thriving every day and this Spring we encourage you to explore!

Take a morning, noon or early night trip to the one Camp North End! With an awesome artistic look and located in a former factory, this new hot spot has shops, food vendors, weekend markets and brings the Charlotte community together. This Spring you can expect to see a lot of live music and pop-up shops set up in the Boiler Yard.

We love Charlotte! Sunset yesterday at Camp North End! #CLT

Go explore a local park! Charlotte is FULL of exciting parks and nature preserves including McDowell Nature Preserve, Freedom Park, Romare Bearden Park and Crowders Mountain State Park.  I suggest you get yourself a hammock, take a light hike and enjoy the sunshine!

Try taking a trolley pub tour. With the weather getting nicer, why not enjoy some brews and get in your exercise on a pub-crawl. You can choose from their Noda or Uptown routes and pedal your way to fun with this eco-friendly trolley experience.

Go with your pup (or your friend's pup) to the new Charlotte Canine Café. Located along the Charlotte Rail Trail, this café gives you an adorable self-service doggie spa, homemade doggie treats and of course delicious drinks for you too.

Have fun Charlotte!
