“A Wow!”

Charlotte Douglas Airport Overlook
Ranked #29 of 189 things to do in Charlotte
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We were visiting our kids who have a two-year-old and when we were looking for things to do when mom and dad had an engagement they suggested this overlook which surprised us. Although we knew he liked planes, we had no idea what a treat this would be for him. Since that first visit, we have taken our little guy to the overlook two more times by his request. It's surprisingly entertaining and a nice, easy diversion.

Never realised it was possible to rate Overlooks! As you can I will say that it is an awesome overlook. You are very close to the planes taking off and landing, Always plenty of space to park, although they could do with a few more benches for eating at. But nice to do on a summers evening

If you love planes, this is the place to go. You get a clear view of each plane as they taxi to the runway and take off. Sorry, no landings on this runway.

A very nice area with park benches, tables and trash cans. We have been 3 times and packed a lunch the last time. My grand sons really enjoyed watching the planes take off. There is some shade where the tables are located. There were several families there and it felt like a safe place to watch the planes.
