CLT: A Mecca for Art Lovers & Sports Fans Alike 🎭🏈


Thinking of relocating to Charlotte, North Carolina? We’ve shared countless reasons across the internet about our beautiful city. From Why Charlotte? to a multitude of school information, Charlotte Douglas International Airport and more.  On this beautiful Charlotte day (oh yes, the weather is a BIG draw to our area!), let’s talk arts & culture as well as sports - two more big draws to our world-class city.



You could spend a lifetime in Charlotte and still discover something new and exciting in the arts and culture scene. Think of our art museums as global journeys, just a short drive from your doorstep, showcasing pieces from artists around the world. When it comes to the stage, whether you're into local theater or Broadway-level productions, Charlotte has it all. Don't overlook the public art, either—it's more than just a photo op; it's a tourist attraction in its own right. So, if you're all about soaking up culture, Charlotte's vibrant and ever-evolving landscape has got you covered - we’ve got an ever-unfolding scene that's waiting for you to jump in!


🎨 You're absolutely in the right place if you're after a dose of Arts & Culture—Charlotte is a-buzz with it! From Uptown's chic and sophisticated galleries, to NoDa’s quirky and artistic vibe, perfect for a casual art crawl. If live performances get your heart racing, then you simply cannot miss what's happening at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center—it's the epicenter for Broadway-level shows - oh, and killer concerts too.


🖼️ Widening the lens—our museums are nothing short of spectacular. Take your pick from The Mint Museum, Bechtler Museum of Modern Art or the Harvey B. Gantt Center; whether you're into the classics or have a hankering for modern flare, we've got you covered.


🎵 Charlotte's art scene isn't just limited to galleries and museums. We're talking Instagram-worthy murals and fabulous music festivals that bring you the best of every genre—from jazz to that indie sound you love.


Whether you're a history buff or an art aficionado, Charlotte's got a museum that's right up your alley! Here are a few of our local favorites:




Whether your level of art appreciation is only one good piece of art or you live and breathe culture, Charlotte has an energetic and eclectic scene that's ready for you to dive right in!




Not into the right-brained, arts & cultural scene? Well, believe it or not, athletes are also right-brained and cultural enthusiasts also quite often enjoy Charlotte’s sports scene too! So, if you’re moving to CLT and are a sports fan, buckle up!


Charlotte is where it's at for high-octane athletic action. Whether it's catching the 🏈NFL's Panthers at Bank of America Stadium or watching the 🏀NBA's Hornets buzz around the court, the energy in this city is simply electric. But hey, it's not just about football and basketball; NASCAR's heart beats right here, with the 🏎️ Charlotte Motor Speedway hosting some of the sport's most thrilling races.

Our ⚾Charlotte Knights provide entertainment for baseball fans of all ages at Truist Field. And, let's not forget about soccer—the newest addition to Charlotte’s sports repertoire. ⚽Charlotte FC is making big waves as well, also playing at Bank of America Stadium. In addition to our existing sports venues,🎾Charlotte has big plans to bring international tennis to the west side of town in the new River District. Pickleball fans, never fear, the $400M plan does also include a “world-class pickleball facility!” 


Charlotte offers something for every sports enthusiast. Simply put, Charlotte's sports scene is a slam dunk, a touchdown, a home run and a checkered flag—all rolled into one!


Charlotte is a sports lover's dream come true! From the gridiron to the basketball court and from the racetrack to the soccer & baseball fields, this city delivers non-stop action that'll keep your heart pounding. So, whether you're a die-hard fan or just looking for an exciting outing, Charlotte's sports scene is where you'll want to be!

I know - I remember our discussion in Boston about that, Endre Barath, Jr.! I'm stubborn and refuse to allow anyone to take something from me that I enjoy so very much. The culprit in this instance never made it back to the NFL and is a nobody now. He shot himself in the foot by being political at his workplace!

It definitely is a sports mecca and I have a feeling that since it is such a hard ticket to get, I won't be able to see my Wildcats play at Cameron Indoor, haha.

I have been known to tell people I am the most boring person I know.  

I am neither an art lover nor a sports fan yet I know there is plenty to love about Charlotte.

Back in the day, I knew a lot of the restaurants and had spent time at the racetrack, golf courses and a few laces that sold adult beverages.
