I wanted to see the worlds fair attraction, and any excuse to go to a museum is a good one. The worlds fair exhibit was a extra 10$ on top of the10$ to get in. I do not know if I would spend the extra money again. However the museum was nice and clean, the people working we're super nice. We had a good talk with a few of them they were helpful.

“Excellent collection of Glass and Wood art”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

The new mint museum location in uptown Charlotte (the original is in Randolph road) has a very good pieces of Glass and wood art in its collection. It is worth the trip and free on Wednesday after 5 pm. Parking is convenient close and discounted if you validate your ticket. The area has other museum and a performing art hall

“Vibrant Night Life”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

So many restaurants & night spots to choose from. Interesting enclaves of unique residences sprinkled in amongst several hotels and office bldgs. Very Clean and seemed super safe, (bank guards all up & down College St.). Surprising numbers of people on the street in the wee hours moving from bar to car or to restaurants with 'late nite' menus.
My first trip and it was mostly all business. I will go back for pleasure.
