Cheap Flights to Charlotte

Charlotte overview

Plan to be among riches when you book cheap flights to Charlotte. As soon as your Charlotte flight lands, you'll be in the second-biggest banking city in the United States. Known as Queen City, this sunny metropolis might be a business town, but cheap flights to Charlotte offer much more to offer than the Bank of America Plaza, Hearst Tower, and hustling 9-5ers.

When you arrive in Charlotte, be sure to explore the entire city, and not just one part. Walking through one of the many distinct neighbourhoods, you’ll find a wonderful assortment of museums, food, and architecture to gawk at and visit. Here and there, you’ll see a cluster of skyscrapers, banks, and hotels, and then around the corner move into a completely different area, filled with quaint shops, bistros, and bars. Trendy travellers booking flights to Charlotte will love the NoDa (North Davidson) neighbourhood is the most up and coming, where small and funky establishments exist side by side to create an underground village feel. In Charlotte, all of these aspects of the city reinforce the jovial collide of the Old South’s manners, precision, and drawl, and the New South’s energy, pace, and competition. 

Whether you’re here for a business trip, checking out the galleries, or cheering on the Panthers, a multi-faceted journey awaits when you book flights to Charlotte.

Getting around Charlotte

Your best bet for getting around in Charlotte is either walking or taking the Gold Rush shuttle. The shuttle provides free service throughout Uptown. You can also board a trolley from Historic South End to Center City Charlotte or take public transportation, called the CATS, throughout the city. If you’re staying outside the city, you’ll need a car. But avoid driving into and out of the city during rush hour. To help you find your way around the city, it’s a good idea to pay attention to the street names. Some of Charleston’s major streets have a different name once you cross the intersection and you’ll find that several streets have the same name. Needless to say, it can get confusing.
