Welcome to March where we’re just a step away from spring! The Queen City is still in the midst of winter but spring is definitely going to be here before we know it. Before that happens, you can still enjoy some of the wintry activities Charlotte has to offer like hitting the slopes or taking a cozy stroll in a bookstore. We’ve also rounded up some art events, cultural activities and spots you can try. Without further ado, here’s 31 fantastic things to do in Charlotte this March.
The popular Candlelight series back in Charlotte, and they’re doing some really amazing tributes to some of culture’s most iconic musicians. This month you can see a few special concerts, from amazing classic rock on strings at the Ruth to a tribute to Coldplay’s best songs at the end of the month. For Swifties, a intimate concert at the barrel room playing classic renditions of Taylor Swift’s best songs is also in the city on March 15th.
Certain to be a new South Charlotte favorite, this open pour taproom is opening in Charlotte at the beginning of March. We’d recommend checking them out before they become packed! Over 60 taps have craft beer, wine, hard seltzer and soda, and 12 taps dedicated to hard soda. The space is set inside a modern log cabin with plenty of space, greenery, and lounge seating to enjoy.
With around 2,700 books being released every day, you’re likely to find your new best read whenever you pop into any book store, and Charlotte’s got a few independent book stores that we love. Take a coffee, spend the afternoon inside one of these cozy bookstores, and support local businesses at the same time.
If you’re looking to discover the North Carolina ski scene, you’re in luck. We’ve gathered together some of the state’s best ski resorts that are situated pretty close to Charlotte (the farthest resort is less than 3 hours away) for your skiing pleasure. Some of these resorts boast extremely challenging terrain, like Wolf Ridge, while others offer great parks like Appalachian Ski.
If there’s something cold weather calls for, it’s coffee. With so many craft and cozy coffee shops in Charlotte, we decided we needed to round them all up just in case you’d like to take on a coffee crawl through the city. From familiar shops like Julia Coffee and Books to the city’s only cat cafe where you can sip on java and adopt a cat, to a new Latina-style coffee shop.
