  • Very beautiful garden located at UNC Charlotte Campus. The garden features a green house with awesome species of flowers and plants, an outdoor garden with bridges, small waterfall, and many other beautiful landscapes. If you're looking for a nice place to take pictures this is the place!
  • What a joy to be among beautiful, growing plants!! The staff was super friendly. It was a very nice way to spend a couple of hours!
  • The best part of UNCC, hands down. They have so many unique and special native plants. If your in the area, and get a kick out of plants, this is your stop. They also have a wonderful plant sale in the spring, with a wide arrange of plants you can't find any where else. A pleasant place to take a stroll.
  • Very nice small garden to enjoy some very nice plants. Good place to relax.
  • The garden itself leaves something to be desired, but the greenhouses host a nice wide variety of plants.

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.
