Overview
This Charlotte city tour traverses Queen City in an open-air golf cart, allowing for an intimate small-group tour experience and unobstructed views. Ideal for first time Charlotte visitors, this tour introduces you to the city’s must-see attractions and little-known enclaves, including the Historic Fourth Ward, NASCAR Hall of Fame, and Plaza Midwood.

  • Cruise through Charlotte in an open-air golf cart ideal for close-up views
  • Small-group tour means plenty of time to ask questions
  • Fully narrated tour introduces you to fun Charlotte history and culture

What to Expect
Make your way to an easy-to-find meeting point in Uptown Charlotte to begin your tour. Board a premium 7-person golf cart for a Charlotte city tour with open-air views of top sights including the NASCAR Hall of Fame, BB&T Ballpark, and Spectrum Stadium. Ride past vibrant Victorian homes in the Historic Fourth Ward and the warehouses, breweries, and art galleries of the First Ward as your guide entertains with insight about Queen City. Continue through the artsy South End and onward to the up-and-coming areas of NoDa and Plaza Midwood, pausing to take photos and ask questions as you go. Finish your tour at a favorite pub chowing down on fried pickles—a classic Charlotte snack.
