Charlotte has a lot to see and do. The city has history that overflows that people who visit this will not have enough time to witness all that Charlotte has to offer. This is where this museum comes into play. If a person has a few days in Charlotte and wants to learn as much history, this museum will offer. The price for this museum is $17 per adult. What I love about this museum is the organization. The history of Charlotte started during the Revolution Wars and goes into today's history. This museum explains wonderfully how Charlotte went from being a land of farms to a land of diversity and innovations that people have come to love and respect Charlotte for. The museum is very family...Read More

Attraction | "A Decent Attraction"

When I took my family to this place called Imaginon, I was expecting a place that the entire family could enjoy together. Once inside, I was was wrong. This attraction is just a big library with extra feature meant for children of certain age. Don't get me wrong, it is a nice library with plenty of children books to read and activities to keep kids entertained, but it is not family-oriented. This museum tends to focus on children ages six to fourteen. I have a two-year old who was quickly bored and not interested in this place at all. it took her only 30 minutes before she exploded in frustration. My seven-year old enjoyed this attraction so much that my wife and I would let her run around...Read More

I was in the mood to eat French food because I love everything French. My wife found this hidden gem in Charlotte. Even though this is a hidden gem, this place is insanely popular for a good reason. That reason is the food. The food at this place is heavenly delicious. Is it real thing as in France? No. However, if you have not had the real thing in France or Québec, Canada, this is the closet thing you will get for authentic French food. I ordered an croque monsieur sandwich. Each bite I took, I savored. it was not only my croque monsieur that was art but also all of the food offered by this restaurant. For dessert, my family got éclaires; these were a sinfully delicious treat to go w...Read More

This museum is a wonderful museum to visit. The museum is small, yet the museum offer plenty of activities to keep a family pleased. The museum is next to Freedom Park, so a family can enjoy sitting outside on a beautiful day. The best part of the museum was the butterfly exhibit. My daughters enjoyed being in the exhibit and seeing the butterflies. I enjoyed how the room brought in sunlight, which made seeing the butterflies an awesome experience. Everyone at any age will enjoy this exhibit. This museum offers other activities such as indoor playground that children can enjoy. What I appreciate about this museum is that you can enjoy the museum and Freedom Park. Freedom Park is very beau...Read More
