There are so many aspects of Charlotte to “ooh” and “ahh” over as we cycle through its sprawling parks, fragrant gardens and historic neighbor-hoods on this Charlotte bike tour. Weaving through some of the most interesting spots in and around the “Queen City” and indulging in tasty local fare, all your senses will be engaged as we follow Charlotte’s path of progress from pre-revolutionary Native American trading paths to today’s culturally rich Southern bank town.
On this Charlotte day tour you'll hear the story of how Charlotte came to be, while riding by the city’s oldest homes and newest postmodern skyscrapers before stopping at a park across from the new Wells Fargo Cultural Campus. From the park, you will see the outside of Uptown Charlotte’s newest museums, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Mint Museum, and Gantt Center. While in uptown we will experience southern favorites from one of the many local restaurants.
Head to South End and learn about Charlotte’s first industrial district (an area that was recently named the third best comeback neighborhood of the southeast). After taking in the sights of South End, we stop at nearby Latta Park, our city’s most historically significant outdoor space. Taste delicious fried chicken wings from one of South End’s legendary establishments.
We will lick our fingers as we cycle along the tree-lined streets and learn the history of Dilworth Charlotte’s first suburban neighborhoods. Marvel at the large homes with exceptionally beautiful yards, some dating from the early 1900s. Our final two destinations will be a surprise! We have so many restaurants to choose from you won’t be sorry.
