Where Charlotte - - CONTENTS -

Unique rec­om­men­da­tions cu­rated by Where and fit to match three per­sonal travel styles.

Foodie

For a farm-to-ta­ble ex­pe­ri­ence that epit­o­mises fresh, head to (1) Her­itage Food & Drink with of­fer­ings that are as beau­ti­ful as they are de­li­cious. If you’re look­ing for el­e­vated South­ern fare, (2) Kin­dred Restau­rant serves up new-South dishes like the squid ink conchiglie with North Carolina shrimp and sea urchin but­ter. Not to be out­done, the Carolinian cuisine at (3) The As­bury is dis­tinctly South­ern but with a creative twist to each dish. Old sta­ples are made new here, such as the shrimp and grits dish with smoked ched­dar, chorizo gravy and Texas caviar.

Artsy

Just strolling along the streets of Char­lotte pro­vides a feast for the eyes with its many (1) wall mu­rals paint­ing build­ings such as David Wil­son’s work on the Har­vey B. Gantt Cen­ter for African Amer­i­can Arts and Cul­ture. For artistry both in­side and out, visit the ar­chi­tac­tural won­der that is the (2) Mint Mu­seum Up­town and head in­side for in­cred­i­ble ex­hi­bi­tions in mul­ti­ple me­dia. And for an artis­tic work you can sip, head to (3) Not Just Cof­fee, which prom­ises lovely images steamed into your latte foam atop a cup of ar­ti­san cof­fee.

Sum­mer

Cool off with a frothy pint at (1) Olde Meck­len­burg Brew­ery. Its bier­garten is the best place to sip suds in the sun. When you need a little R&R, the tran­quil wa­ters of (2) Lake Nor­man pro­vide an ideal sum­mer es­cape with plenty of ways to un­wind, and just as much op­por­tu­nity to play, whether by fish­ing, boat­ing or swim­ming. To get your heart rac­ing, head to the (3) U.S. Na­tional White­wa­ter Cen­ter where you can kayak, climb ropes cour­ses, zipline and, of course, splash your way through the world’s largest man-made white­wa­ter river.
