Itinerary

Cornbread. Fried pickles. Traditional southern fried chicken. Do we really need to say much more to convince you that you should join this Charlotte food tour? If it's the calorie intake you're worried about, never fear! Burn off some of that fried goodness as you bike around the city, taking in the beautiful sights and getting to know Charlotte from a local point of view.
On this Charlotte tour, we'll cruise along the tree-lined streets and learn the history of Dilworth and Myers Park, Charlotte’s first suburban neighborhoods. After displaying our best manners in one of Charlotte’s more proper places, we hang out in the more fun and casual neighborhoods.
Plaza Midwood is easily Charlotte’s most diverse and pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood. You’ll hear the laughter, music, and conversation pouring out of the numerous restaurants and shops, getting you right into the swing of local Charlotte life.
Just down The Plaza and around the corner is NODA, the must-see budding arts district with a lively nightlife, which will be our final destination on this Charlotte bike tour. We stop at one of the most popular hotspots in Charlotte, our very own 24-hour French bakery. Yes, you read that correctly, a 24-hour bakery! Could there be a better way to end your Charlotte tour? Didn't think so.
