While Charlotte, North Carolina, may be known for its NASCAR roots, there is much more to this southern city than racing. Charlotte is packed with sightseeing tours that allow residents and visitors alike to experience the city from all new vantage points. Check out these five ideas for sightseeing tours in Charlotte from the staff at Vein Specialists of the Carolinas.

Segway Tours

Segway tours are a popular way to see the sights in Charlotte without wearing out your walking shoes. A Segway glides you through the city on a guided tour that provides valuable information about the history of Charlotte and the many food and entertainment venues located here. Choose a Taste & Glide tour that allows you to sample North Carolina fare or a haunted tour that takes you to some of Charlotte’s best ghost stories.

Exploring the Fourth Ward

Take in a bit of Charlotte history when you stroll past the Victorian relics in the Fourth Ward. This lovely neighborhood features a unique blend of old charm and urban luxury to create a delightfully eclectic view of Charlotte past and present. Guided tours are available, or you can simply take in the sights on your own.

Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden

Get your fill of Southern horticulture in the beauty of the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. There are 110 acres to explore here, which include 10 acres of themed gardens, nature trails and 12 fountains. The visitor’s pavilion and orchid conservatory are must-see stops along your tour, whether you opt for a self-guided tour or a group tour led by a trained garden guide.

Carriage Rides 

Day or night, carriage rides through Charlotte have become a popular way to tour the city. While the quaint carriages are frequently used for special occasions and weddings, they can also be a luxurious way to learn more about Charlotte as you travel the city in high style. Carriage drivers are trained to provide pertinent facts about the area while ensuring their passengers have a comfortable, relaxing ride.

Dinner River Cruises

If water travel is more your style, sightseeing and dinner cruises are also available around the Charlotte area. Whether you are looking for an old-fashioned ferry boat or a more modern catamaran, you can see the sight and sounds of Charlotte from your soothing water perch. These cruises feature divine food and live entertainment, so you can make a special night or day of your Charlotte visit.
