Detroit residents who are looking for a taste of the American South should consider a flight to Charlotte, the Queen City of North Carolina. Start your trip down south by driving to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW), or if you prefer to avoid finding parking, take AirRide or SMART bus service to the airport. Travel time is approximately an hour and 33 minutes when you fly from Detroit to Charlotte.
Charlotte is home to a number of museums that are worth a visit if you have the time. Take a look at the Afro-American Cultural Center, which offers interesting visual arts exhibits, fine art, films and live performances in the outdoor amphitheater. If you enjoy studying nature and science, visit the Discovery Place where you can go to an Omnimax movie theater, walk through a rainforest or study human biology. Situated in a 19th-century U.S. mint building, the Mint Museum of Art offers American paintings, historic maps and a large number of Spanish Colonial statues.
Serving about 41 million passengers annually, Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) is located a few miles from downtown and is accessible from Interstate Highway 485. Charlotte hosts quite a few annual events, including the St. Patrick's Day Parade, the Queen's Cup, Festival in the Park, Speed Street and the Q-City Charlotte BBQ Championship. Year-round temperatures in Charlotte drop as low as 29 degrees in the winter and go as high as 89 degrees in the summer.
