Anybody driven to Orlando, FL from Charlotte?

by nash816

Has anybody driven to Orlando? How is the trip.
Is I95 boring? Are there alternatives to Orlando, besides driving?
I heard the train leave out at wee hours of the morning. If you have driven to Orlando from Charlotte, let me know how it was. Thanks in advance.

Hi - I've driven it a couple of times a few years ago. Best time is about 8 hours but I'd allow a couple of extra hours for traffic, etc. Yeah I-95 is a little boring but I think gets nicer once you hit Florida. St. Augustine is a nice place to stop - about halfway, I think. I don't know about the train - but Air Tran and US Airways both fly for less then $200 RT depending on when you go. I frequently drove between NY and NC so I didn't mind drriving 10-12 hours at a time, but if you don't like driving long hours you may want to consider another way or at least split the trip into 2 days. Enjoy!

You can get detailed train information at http://www.amtrak.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Amtrak/HomePage

There is a 9:15 PM southbound train from Raleigh, NC and an 7:30 AM train from Charlotte to Raleigh. This leaves you with about 12 hours in Raleigh (not a bad little town.)This route is cheap at $69 one way. The train station in Winter Park, FL is in a much nicer part of town then Orlando. Witner Park is just to the North of Orlando. The train will be the slowest way to travel.

Charlotte to Orlando by car is a full day's drive. The vast majority of it is expressway driving. Easy, driving through very rural areas. Depending on the route you might pass through the edge of the mountains, scenic, but not terribly difficult driving.

The other obvious answer is to fly. Charlotte has a major airport. It is a hub of operations for US Airways, and most of the major US airlines fly in and out of there. Orlando to Charlotte is about an hour by air.

Enjoy!

It is a pretty long drive but it isn't extremely bad. There are some nice things that you can see along the way, and it's a good 9-10 hours for whenever I've gone down there. Don't know too much about routes or directions but it really isn't all that bad of a drive.

Travel Tips for Charlotte

Changing Face of Uptown

by acemj

Living in Charlotte is exciting because there is a spirit of change that always keeps things fresh and new. Being a "New South" city means that Charlotteans view themselves as on the rise and we're willing to put up with road construction and other growth issues to build a vibrant city.

Pineville 28134

by b1bob

Pineville, North Carolina is an as-yet unspoilt suburb of Charlotte located in Southern Mecklenburg County just north of the state line, There is a small downtown area with what a lot of urban types would call quaint antique shops. By 2010, you may well see Pineville lose its rural nature from both sides: from the north- upscale suburbs moving south from Ballantyne. From the south, less upscale homes in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

Peruvian delights!

by acemj about El Loco Pollo

Charlotte has certainly become more cosmopolitan over the years and one sign of that progress is the number of new ethnic restaurants. This Peruvian place isn't much to look at situated in a strip mall on the east side of town, but the food is great. Try the Ceviche Mixto if you like seafood. Or you might try the Arroz con Pollo if you prefer chicken.

Last time I was there with VTer b1bob and we had the Anticuchos de Corazon (beef heart kebabs) for an appetizer and I had a Peruvian beer called Cusquena. Though some might call the beef hearts exotic, they're actually really good. They just taste like grilled beef with a slightly different texture. I also had the Pescado a la Macho, which is mixed seafood served with rice, yuca and a slightly spicy sauce.
***The lunch menu is half the price of the dinner menu.

"Upscale" Chinese

by FreeCloud about Soho Bistro

It is a fairly new one. Conveniently located on N. College between 5th and 6th. Right across the Holiday Inn Central.

The decoration is simple, unlike most of the Chinese restaurants, you do not see many red and gold color stuff in it. It feels comfortable.

The ownders want to provide 'upscale' Chinese food for public. It does NOT serve just 'sweet and sour with your choice of meat', it offers something extra to people with more sophisticated experience of Chinese cuisine.

The staff is very friendly.

A review:
http://charlotte.creativeloafing.com/newsstand/2003-11-05/cuisine_feature.html - Scallop with Japanese Udon Noodle $13.95
This is a very good tasty dish, the scallops are large and fresh. It came too much udon noodles, but those with a big appetite should be happy!

- Ma Po Tofu
This is a very traditional dish, but not somehow many Chinese restaurants have their own 'interpretation', therefore the results differ widely. Soho Bistro's version is NOT the authentic Ma Po Tofu one has in mind.

- Scallion Pancake
This is a traditional Chinese food but not served in most of the Chinese restaurants. The Soho Bistro's version is a bit too greasy.

- Eggplant with garlic sauce
Very tasty.

Mexican, anyone?

by acemj about Zapata's

You'll be welcomed with, "Hola, coma esta?" but don't worry if you don't speak Spanish. The staff here is friendly and very bilingual and the food is plentiful. Beef, lamb, pork, chicken and seafood is served along with all the usual traditional Mexican dishes. The beer and Margarita selections are good and the atmosphere is clean and brightly colored. They have really cool sinks in the bathroom too!! Pollo Borracho is a chicken dish in a tequila cream sauce served with Mexican rice and beans. Try Pacifico beer if you like Corona or Tecate.
