Top Things to Do in Charlotte in 2017 - #2 Take a Ride on The LYNX Blue Line
*This is #2 in a series of our top 10 picks. Visit our Facebook page - Things to Do in Charlotte for even more things to do in our area!
We began our series with a focus on our local professional and semi-professional sports teams. Today let’s focus on something that one would never think is a ‘thing’ to do but, just WAIT until you’ve done it!
Traffic in any metro area can be horrific and depending on the time of day, Charlotte can be no different. Why not try another form of transportation, avoid the traffic and have a great time along the way?
#2 Take the LYNX light rail from one end to the other
The completion of the Lynx Blue Line Extension is slated to open late summer, 2017! The light rail is already available from I-485 at South Boulevard, through South End, Uptown, and the extension will go through NoDa and end at UNC Charlotte.
Oh, IMAGINE the possibilities! From hip restaurants & bars, specialty shops, open and farmers markets…and the craft breweries are already possibilities but, the areas from which you will be able to travel to these are expanding beyond our wildest expectations!
Currently the stop options are endless from Prineville to South End to Uptown. If you live in the Fort Mill area, you can travel just a short distance to the Park & Ride facility in Pineville. Parking is a breeze in Uptown when you take the Light Rail!
For updates on the progress of the LYNX Blue Line Extension and for street closings due to construction, visit the Facebook page solely dedicated to just that!
Now, let’s hop on the LYNX Blue Line and make some stops! You’ll definitely want to pop by and visit us in our South End/Dilworth office by stopping at the East/West Station and heading south a couple of minutes to Atherton Mills; our address is below. Plan your trip on the user-friendly LYNX website.
