February is one of our favorite months of the year; everything takes on a bit more romantic air, from romantic dining pop ups and decor, new events happening around the city, and the chill of winter still calling for cozy nights. Make the most out of your month by hitting the slopes before ski season is over, enjoy all the warm and cozy food, cocoa, and patios, and get cultured at a candlelit concert that’s as enchanting as it is romantic. Consider this our love letter to February: Here are 52 things to do in Charlotte.
1. Attend an enchanting Candlelit concert
Tickets are selling out fast to these enhancing candlelight concerts that are taking place this spring, from amazing setlists dedicated to famous artists like Adele, to an epic night of classics from Vivaldi and more contemporary score musician, Hans Zimmer. All will take place in some of Charlotte’s most stunning venues, all swimming in candlelight. You can get your tickets now for the spring season of concerts starting this February.
2-16. Take a bucket list tour around Charlotte’s most unique sights
Charlotte may not be a titan city like Miami, Chicago, and New York, but we quite like it that way. Charming while still being a mecca for good food and culture, Charlotte has got plenty of things to do in February visitors and locals alike, such as unique art installations, creative cultural centers, and more. We made a bucket list of all of Charlotte’s best sights, so why not spend February trying to cross each one off your bucket list?
- US National Whitewater Center
- Camp North End
17-22. Hit the slopes at one of North Carolina’s best resorts
February and March are perfect months for skiing, and North Carolina has got a collection of resorts that are fairly close to Charlotte. For skiers, snowboarders, snowtubers, or aprés skiers, we’d recommend hitting the slopes this month as much as you can before the season is over.
23. Enjoy a Charlotte tradition with I Heart Railtrail in South End
The I Heart Rail Trail Lights presented by U.S. Bank is back for another year, where South End is transformed into a hub for immersive art and light displays. Each time, the displays are different, and this year they’re featuring 6 different artists over the course of 17 days (February 3-19) with plenty of things to do and see for the whole family.
24-29. Grab a warm cup of cocoa in Charlotte
What better to warm up a gloomy day than a fresh cup of hot chocolate? We rounded up 5 of the most decadent, warm cups of cocoa you can get around Charlotte, from one made from a homemade chocolate shop that makes their own marshmallows.
30. Try out this new farm-to-table restaurant coming to Charlotte
A new restaurant has just hit Charlotte this February and it’s called Restaurant Constance. A coastal farm house dedicated to serving up locally sourced, in season, and farm fresh food. This one will soon have a full non-alcoholic menu that we’re also excited to try.
31-36. Take advantage of the season with these must-do winter activities
Grab your warmest jacket, snow boots, and head out into the snow this February to go chasing spectacular frozen waterfalls, get lost in a stunning estate where you can see the snow-capped mountains and drizzling snow outside your window, or stay inside a quaint cabin among the Blue Ridge or Great Smoky Mountains. With this list, we’ll remind you that there’s plenty of things to do in and near Charlotte this February.
37-52. Visit a romantic, beautiful restaurant for a perfect date night
If you’re looking to spend Valentine’s Day cozy in a beautiful restaurant than look no further, as there are plenty of beautiful spaces to spend with that special someone, your friends, or even by yourself. Make sure to book in advance as we anticipate more people vying for a table than normal.
