Things to Do and Places to See in Charlotte - Summer fun at the Charlotte Airport Overlook

 

Charlotte Airport Overlook: One of the Nation’s Best Airport Views

 

The Charlotte Douglas International Airport Overlook is everything you could want in an airport overlook…and then some! Most longtime Charlotteans know about this spot but, it’s always a pleasant surprise to newcomers to our area. Most airports won’t encourage actively watching planes and flight patterns and very few actually have an area do it.

Yes, one of the nations best overlook areas can be found right here in Charlotte. The view from this area is totally unobstructed – you feel like you could reach up and touch the belly of the planes as they land or ascend to their destination cities.

 

The location is just off of Old Dowd Road - at 4355 Airport Overlook Drive, where visitors can enjoy a picnic on the grassy area or a selection of benches. As we all know though, it’s the view that brings people here! Where else can you have a front-row seat to watch airplanes take off and land on the Charlotte Douglas runways? It is rare for an airport to offer public viewing areas and Charlotte’s overlook is a popular one for people of all ages, photographers and, of course, plane enthusiasts.

 

 

While visiting one of the families who I sold a home to a few months ago, the children couldn’t contain their excitement of the ‘show’ they saw at the overlook the night before! It’s a very popular place to take the children…and it’s free! Well, unless you partake in something delicious, served by one of Charlotte’s food trucks – the airport’s newest addition to the overlook area.

 

Overlook Food Trucks

Looking for something ‘cheap’ or free to do in Charlotte, check out the Charlotte Douglas International Airport Overlook. If you're visiting the Overlook on Saturdays, be on the lookout for the food truck! Food trucks rotate and are scheduled for the overlook area every Saturday through October from 12-3.

Once again, kudos to Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 for coming up with this brilliant idea and hosting this month's contest, sharing summer fun ideas for our areas

What a fun place to take kids!  We used to watch the planes coming and going from MPLS airport and we loved it as kids....and adults. What a great idea to make Food Truck night at the airpark overlook!

Thank you, Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886! We used to LOVE to do this when I was little - of course, I had to love it, having a Dad who was in the Air Force and a brother who had his goal set on going to the Air Force Academy (and he did). We're loving that the food trucks are visiting there too!

Happy Thursday and first of AUGUST!

Hello Debe, I know you will be seeing the airport often in the next couple of months.  Denver airport is a mess now.
