As the weather warms up in Charlotte, it’s time to heat outside for a little fresh air and sunshine. Land management and city leaders care for this city’s greenery like none other, so when it comes time for a sun-soaked summer day, take advantage and enjoy tree city USA like never before. These, the city’s best places to picnic offer so much more than splendid scenery. Explore, dine, enjoy.
Everyone wants a workout that allows ease of scheduling, and tennis provides exactly that for a solid portion of Charlotte’s athletes.

It’s easy to find the courts that are free, well lit or open late, but start with the city’s best for the little extras every player loves.
