The city of Charlotte may be favored due to its NASCAR roots, but this city has a lot to offer more than just racing. The downtown Charlotte events alone are more than enough to satisfy any cravings a traveler may have for adventure and fun. Its listing is at a continual growth which includes several huge. If someone wants to have some fun, he better know where are the venues this things are more likely to happen. Mapping out the city for hotspots are supposed to be done weeks from the actual date of your travel, but if somehow it never occurred to you the internet can still help you out. Here are some of the venues that are usually kept on the itineraries of your fellow travellers.
- Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre – is tagged as the city of Charlotte’s main hall for music. When someone needs to have his fix of great performance and be entertained looking up the schedule of events on this venue might lead you to what you are looking for. It’s originally named Blockbuster Pavilion and has opened its doors for anyone who plans to be entertained since 1991. Live nation, one of the country’s leading brands when it comes to entertainment manages Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. Some of the world’s rock band icons have gazed the floor of this venue such as Journey and Aerosmith to name a few.
- Time Warner Cable Arena – you probably know this place for its NBA team tenant, the Charlotte bobcats. I’m not here to write a sports review but I’m sure that the bobcats are not exactly at the top of your viewing list (just a guess). It also features AHL’s Charlotte Checkers. Either of the two, what’s obvious is if you’re a sports buff, then it is best to bookmark the schedule of events on this venue. It offers great entertainment from the competitions that are hosted here most days of the year. The arena opened its doors to the public in 2005 and since it’s still comparably new, it boasts state-of-the-art technology which only adds to the experience of every event. Its huge capacity also adds another dimension to events hosted here as the sheer number of people that can be present in an event can be colossal and again adds to the experience. Justin Bieber, U2, The Rolling Stones and Miley Cyrus are just some of the names that have made a performance here.
- Bank of America Stadium – this venue is located uptown of Charlotte. For NFL fans, it has been the home of Charlotte’s football team the Carolina Panthers. It was built in 1996 and despite its age, it still fairs well in terms of technology and modern design. During its time, it was built with the technology not introduced yet with large venues so not surprisingly it can still hold its own against some of the stadiums and arenas built much later.
