I live in Toronto, Canada and I'm planning to visit Charlotte next month with my wife and two young kids (4 years and 6 years old).

Could you tell me where in the city I can find good accommodation and interest places for my whole family?

Thanks a lot.

Applause - I love Toronto - We missed that when we left Western NY for Charlotte. There is so much to do.

You might want to stay in Belmont or near Carowinds since your coming with the kids. Concord has alot to offer to depending on what your visit requirements are. Good luck and enjoy your visit.

Discovery Place in Uptown Charlotte will be fun for the kids too.

Applause,

I'm also from the GTA. I hope you enjoy your trip! I plan on moving to Charlotte in the fall.

Safe travels! It's funny... today as just as warm in Charlotte as it is here in the GTA!

I would also suggest Uptown due to its central location. Very walkable city center and also very safe in Uptown Charlotte.

Love Yonge St in Toronto and also love Yorkville.

Enjoy your stay!
