  • Big airport, very clean. Lots of places to eat, quality food at that. The problem is the excessively aggressive attendant. As I was just about to go, the attendant ran over got in my way to wipe off t...  more »
  • So I have to redirect my travel through CLT, nice airport, lots of food selections. But the WiFi is the worst, I could connect but then no internet. I called the number on the airports webpage and it ...  more »
  • Terminal 2 had no charging stations for mobile phones at gaternas. A must today at airports, I think. Starbucks in this terminal small and without seats. Another strange thing I noticed was that there was no clock in the terminal building.

  • You would love this place if you like to watch planes take off and land. Pretty good view and couple of benches to relax. Wish there was some shade as it can get really hot and sunny in summers. Shaded benches would have been better. A good pass times for kids.
  • A great place to take your family. There's always plenty of action with planes landing and taking off. You are very close to the runway too. Only drawback is there is no shade. It's kinda hidden and not advertised. It is free to go so we stop in every time we are in the area.
  • As close to the runway as you can get without Homeland Security hitting the panic button. Nice park with picnic tables, and benches to sit and watch the planes go by. Family friendly and popular with families with young kids. Only down side to visiting with young kids is NO RESTROOM OR PORTA-JONS. Being on airport property ensures regular patrols by police. I've been bringing my kids here regularly for past 5 years and never had any concerns about safety (with the exception of busy parking lot) lots of fun for children and big Kids alike. Tip--- the biggest airplanes land daily around 1:30 and again around 2:30. If you haven't been yet I highly reccommended.
  • Neat place to take kids for a picnic lunch or just to watch the planes. It wasn't as spectacular as I was expecting. Planes aren't always taking off or landing at the strip directly in front of the park. I assume it depends upon the wind which strips they use on a given day. All in all for a small child it is definitely worth going.
  • Great place to sit and watch the planes take off. Great view of the city too. Kind of hard to find.

Where to stay in Charlotte

To avoid driving or riding on public buses during your visit to Charlotte, book your room in or near the city center. You can find most of Charlotte's chain hotels in so-called "Uptown," the centrally located business district and hub of tourist action. Hotels near the airport provide good low-rate options for travelers on a limited budget. These spots offer rooms with access to major roads, allowing you to explore the region quickly and easily.
