If you’re new here, Creating Really Awesome Free Trips has been happening all summer long, every Thursday and some Tuesdays! Today, we’ve got fun, free things to do in Charlotte, NC!
Charlotte is the home to the first gold rush in the nation? This building was moved to its present site and houses more traditional art works, as well as
traveling shows. Is modern art more your thing? Check out the uptown museum. Both of these normally have an entry fee, but on Tuesdays from 5pm to 9pm,
there is free admission! There are great traveling exhibits as well as fun exhibits for the kids, too, so don’t think that it is a stuffy art museum…everyone will have fun!
see artisans actually practicing their art in the Market. There are often free samples, too. Be sure to stop by Renfrow’s Hardware in the buildings next door.
This family owned establishment makes me think of old-time hardware stores. It’s the perfect place to find everything from seeds for your vegetable garden all
the way to the canning supplies to put them up. This is the perfect place to window shop…especially with the kids, because they also have chicks in the
incubator (seasonally) as well as some small livestock out back!
center city Charlotte are closed down to host a large festival. It is full of bands, scheduled appearances of your favorite drivers, and family friendly activities.
Thanks, Jamie, for letting me share a little bit of the Charlotte, NC area! I would love it if all y’all would come visit me over at Architecture of a Mom!
