A sampling of your favorite places to hang out in the Charlotte area:

Knights Castle

at Charlotte Knights Stadium in Fort Mill, S.C.

There is nothing better than hanging out with the wife and kids on a warm, clear summer night under the stars. The games are very affordable for a family of four and with the game, added entertainment and wide variety of snacks and beverages, there is definitely something for everybody.

We love the theater, the books and the special programs they offer, plus I don't have to tell my kids to “shush” in the library.

Trevia Hunter


Wing Haven Gardens

and Bird Sanctuary

248 Ridgewood Ave. in the Myers Park area

It is so relaxing. I love to watch the birds and wildlife running around.

I go with my kids. We love taking hikes in the woods, and sitting by the lake.
