Whether you prefer manicured gardens or pristine wilderness, Charlotte has what you're looking for. For the former, take a stroll through the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden or the gardens at UNC Charlotte. The city itself also has several protected wilderness areas, many of which have educational exhibits and accessible nature trails. These include the Reedy Creek Nature Center and Preserve and the Anne Springs Close Greenway. For a bigger challenge, heat out to Crowders Mountain State Park. The peak offers a view of the Charlotte skyline on clear days.

Charlotte has a vibrant art and culture scene, so there's plenty to explore. Fans of sculpture and painting should check out the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art for some amazing work, or follow the Arts and Science Council's Public Art Walking Tour to see gems hidden among the urban landscape. For a change of pace, visit the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture, which shows a mix of traditional folk art and modern design by African-American artists. If you're a fan of performing arts, Charlotte is also home to numerous excellent community theater programs, a symphony and a ballet company.

If you want a cool experience without leaving town, consider one of Charlotte's water parks. Ray's Splash Planet is a local favorite due to its convenient location in the Uptown district, and it features a variety of slides, pool areas and other attractions that are great for all ages. It's also indoors, so it's a great choice for rainy days. If you want a little more adventure, head over to Great Wolf Lodge in nearby Concord. It features both large and small slides, a wave pool, a tree house and more.

After a day exploring nature and history, you might feel like kicking up your heels a bit. Head down to City Center to check out the EpiCentre, a sprawling entertainment facility that is home to numerous night clubs, restaurants, and entertainment venues. If you prefer to head off the beaten path, check out Brevard Court. The cobblestone street might make you feel like you're stepping back in time, but it is home to world-class dining and entertainment.
