What to Expect
Make your way to an easy-to-find meeting point in Uptown Charlotte to begin your tour. Board a premium 7-person golf cart for a Charlotte city tour with open-air views of top sights including the NASCAR Hall of Fame, BB&T Ballpark, and Spectrum Stadium. Ride past vibrant Victorian homes in the Historic Fourth Ward and the warehouses, breweries, and art galleries of the First Ward as your guide entertains with insight about Queen City. Continue through the artsy South End and onward to the up-and-coming areas of NoDa and Plaza Midwood, pausing to take photos and ask questions as you go. Finish your tour at a favorite pub chowing down on fried pickles—a classic Charlotte snack.

Great way to see the Charlotte Historical District from the comfort of a nice large golf cart with a knowledgeable and funny tour guide. Wish we had known the pub where you meet the tour (and it ends with fried pickles) was no longer in business but it would not have dissuaded
