    • katie Vendors sell all types of vintage clothes, antique furniture, old records, vintage art, and all types of random trinkets!

         
  • PlantHouse
    Shop

    • katie Calling all plant lovers! PlantHouse (the sign on the building actually says Plant Bar), has SO many different types of plants, and they have a DIY terrarium building station! They even have a bar so you can sip & shop while you find the perfect plant for you. Terrarium building is a perfect rainy day activity, but get there early because the lines get long!

         
  • South End
    Neighborhood

    • katie South End is basically the place to be if you want to find the "younger" crowds (by young I mean 20's-30's). So many bars, breweries, and restaurants line the light rail trail, it's fun to just walk along the rail and see what's going on! It's a really easy walk from Uptown Charlotte. I love to wake up on Sunday mornings and walk along the rail trail to South End, and grab brunch at Suffolk Punch!

         
  • Queen Park Social
    Eat & Drink

    • katie Similar to Pins Mechanical, Queen Park Social is giving adult arcade vibes. Perfect for larger groups!

         
  • Pins Mechanical Co
    Eat & Drink

    • katie Basically an adult arcade! Great place to bring large groups

         
  • French Quarter Restaurant
    Eat & Drink
    1
    • katie This restaurant sits at the opening of an alleyway with so many cute, little bars and restaurants lining it! One bar is even a dedicated Manchester United soccer bar so we've spent a few weekends watching the games there.

         
  • U.S. National Whitewater Center
    Eat & Drink
    1
    • katie You can kayak, whitewater raft, zip line, hike, bike, paddleboard, bungee jump, rock climb over the water, and so much more! I definitely recommend getting there early on a hot day, the lines to check in can get pretty long. If you do whitewater raft, choose to do the "adventure" option!

         
  • Romare Bearden Park
    See & Do
    1
    • katie This park is right across the street from my apartment, it's a great place to lay a blanket down and dog watch!

         
  • Lake Norman
    See & Do

    • katie Renting jet skis or a pontoon boat is the perfect way to spend a hot summer day
