Visiting Charlotte in March

by violet12

My husband will be headed to Charlotte in March for a business trip (entire week) and I was considering tagging along, but am curious as to what there is to see/visit in Charlotte. I know it's got a lot of southern charm, but what can I do all day while he is in meetings? I am 52, not really into shopping but do enjoy museums, concerts, local history. Also, what is the weather like in mid-March? I appreciate your input. Thank you.

I forgot to mention that the weather has been up and down and crazy this year. It could range anywhere from 65 to 85.

Travel Tips for Charlotte

Art for art's sake?

by acemj

Throughout Charlotte, you'll find small touches of art, especially in the downtown area. I enjoy the art, but don't expect most of the locals to be incredibly artistic. Most of the money for all of this art comes from corporate dollars and doesn't necessarily reflect the city's artistic spirit as much as it reflects the fact that Charlotte's big businesses like to put their sponsorhip tags on public projects from their own corporate name recognition.

Asheville

Asheville is about two hours west of Charlotte. It's one of my favorite excursions from Charlotte, providing great sights and amazing scenery. Check out my Asheville page for details. Pictured is America's largest privately owned home, the Biltmore Estate.

Dinner is Served at La-tea-da's

by jwoodson about La-tea-da's

From the past "coffee shop" days, visit La-tea-da's in historic Elizabeth! Still serving a delicious simple lunch and now serving a southern style supper! Dinner dining is available wednesday, thursdays and fridays! No Saturday service due to its offsite catering commitments! Now an alternative to come back to Elizabeth in the evenings...!
Lunch is served tues-sat
dinner is served wed-fri
Tea Service by reservation
full service catering by reservation any time! Chef Robert's Crabcakes and summer farmer's market veggie places. Don't forget the homemade soups. Selling out three soups daily! (even in July)

Yum, yum, Dim Sum!

by acemj about Dim Sum

Dim Sum Chinese Restaurant is located on Central Avenue, which is certainly one of Charlotte's most ethnically eclectlic roads. You'll find many Mexican, Vietnamese and Chinese restaurant choices here, but as far as Chinese food goes, this place is tough to beat. They have an "Authentic Chinese" menu as well as a more Americanized version for non-VT members only! If you come here, stick with the dim sum which is served 7 days a week. Dim Sum, of course! For those who are not familiar with dim sum, it is very similar in concept to Spanish tapas. Dim Sum is traditionally served with tea at lunch time in the Chinese culture. Restaurant servers will come around the restaurant with small plates full of little delicacies like steamed shrimp, pork dumplings, various vegetables and much, much more. Many of the dishes are prepared in bamboo steamers and some are even cooked in banana leaves. The only problem is that there is so much variety that you'll have to come back often before you've tried everthing.

Go for the show, not the food

by acemj about Kabuto

Kabuto has four Charlotte area locations, but I've only been to the one in South Charlotte on Pineville-Matthews Road (Highway 51). I don't think it's particularly great food, but people seem to love it here. Don't get me wrong, the food's not bad, it's just nothing you'll remember forever. It is, however, a great place to go for the spectacle of having a guy prepare the food in front of you with all kinds of flair and excitement and this makes it especially fun to go with a large group. The chef will come to your table and put on a show complete with juggling knives and flames as you can see from the picture.

If you make a reservation, note that they'll only hold your reservation for ten minutes after the scheduled time and everyone in your party must be there before you'll be seated. Get something from the hibachi grill menu. It's a lot of food for somewhere between $16-$30 a person. You get a salad with either a ginger or a ranch dressing, then a soup with scallions and mushrooms and of course, the main course, which includes, rice, noodles and the meats you've ordered (there are vegetarian options too).
