    The best hiking will require a longish drive west to Asheville and the Smoky Mountains, but Charlotte also has some good outdoors options on its doorstep. Two good local picks include 32,500-acre Lake Norman, 35 miles north of Charlotte on I-77, and Crowders Mountain State Park, 25 miles west on I-87.

    Hi - we have lived outside of Charlotte for 2 years, and last year we purchased a season pass from Carowinds for the 1st time. It is a very good park to visit, and is comparable to other Paramount amusement parks. We have a 7 year old and a 3 year old, and there were plenty of rides to keep them busy. They also have a water park to cool off when you need a break, which is nice. The staff varies, so the service is adequate but nothing to brag about. But the rides are great! Tons of coasters, lots of games. You will need to spend the entire day to get your money's worth if you do not get a pass. Hope this helps - have a nice trip!

    Best I could do was find recommendations for 30 East, located close to the Charlotte Nature Museum. Looks like a nice place for a nosh. Discovery Place also serves light snacks and lunches at its Community Cafe. Haven't eaten there personally, though my experience of museum-served fare is far from inspiring!

    Try the Southpark Mall, considered the best mall in Charlotte. There are a lot of boutique stores around there as well.
