Mini Travel Guide to Charlotte
The Green on South Tryon offers 1.5 acres of lush gardens amidst the chaos of the city where you can grab an ice-cream and cool off by the foutains while you study the whimsical art pieces across its three tiers of lawns. Further along the road tourists and locals grab lunch at the Latta Arcade, built in 1915, and filled with period charm and cute shops. You’ll also find the Mint Museum of Craft and Design along North Tryon, its displays centring around works of art in ceramics, glass, jewellery and furniture. A few blocks further on, the NC Blumenthal Performing Arts Center plays host to visiting Broadway shows and a full programme of music, dance and theatre.

You’ve seen Gone With The Wind, now go check out a real plantation. The Historic Rosedale Plantation on North Tryon was built in 1815 and still retains the smart yellow and white trim that had the whole of Charlotte gossiping when it was built. The original French wallpaper inside is still in tact and the lovely grounds are perfect for imaging yourself as Scarlett or Rhett.
