When to Visit Charlotte

The best time to visit Charlotte is from March through May and September through November, the less crowded and less expensive shoulder seasons. Though it's tempting to visit in summer thanks to the extended hours offered by some of the city's top attractions, June through August is also the busiest (not to mention the hottest) time to be in the Queen City.
