  • I like anything that by the water...paths are nice to walk, have good spots for barbecues...not good for fishing as per signs!!  more »
  • Great walking trails through woods and along the lake. Hilly but not too strenuous. Plenty of geocaching "treasures" if you are into that sort of thing... much fun  more »
  • This place is a great place to go for hikes, picnic, barbecue, walks around the lake. Fishing is nice too....  more »

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.
