Spring is here and the weather is so nice. After spending the week inside your office/home, the weekend is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy this weather.
Here are some ideas for the perfect Sunday Funday.
Eat, drink and walk your way through uptown Charlotte starting at 7th Street Market. Sample food, wine, champagne, pastries and more. Talk one on one with some of the best artisans and cooks in the city and learn what inspires their dishes. Also learn about local history and view some unique architecture that you probably overlooked in the past.
Tours available every Sunday in April. Click here to purchase your ticket.
Want to enjoy some fun in the water without getting wet? Take a friend to Dave’s Paddle Boats and get some exercise using those leg muscles while paddling away.
Rental available every daily from April to September and weekends from October to March (weather permitting).
