Just a quick hello from a few days spent in Charlotte, North Carolina. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by this beautiful city – surprised because I’m from Seattle and never expect other cities to measure up. A bit snobby I know.
It’s true that Charlotte is missing the water and the mountains that Seattle has. But it’s dry and flat and walkable and the people are warm and friendly.
Public art and museums abound where we stayed Uptown and even the skyscrapers are beautiful.
From Charlotte we headed to Florida where the weather should have been better but wasn’t. More on that later.
Looks like a fun trip! When did you go? I really like the giant book “statue” 😀
Thanks! We arrived last Wed and left Sunday. In Orlando for a few days at the Disneyworld. 😁
A trip from one side of your huge country, to the other. Great photos, and an interesting perspective on a very different state.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks Pete. 😁 Yes, all the way across and to the South. A beautiful state with different culture and lots of history.
Sounds like a great adventure…Charlotte has a great reputation, and glad to see it lived up to the hype!
Yes, I was pleasantly surprised! 😁
One state I have yet to visit.
This was our first time to Charlotte but years ago we did a road trip and took the Blue Ridge Parkway through N Carolina. I loved it.
It is on our list.
