My husband and I will be coming to Charlotte next week (19-23) to check out the city for a possible relocation. We will be traveling with our two daughers (almost 1 and 4) and want them to have fun on the trip. I found the following activities...what is worth going to, what should we skip, any other suggestions? Also, any easy hiking trails on nearby mountains?

Stowe Botanical Gardens
Discovery Place
Lazy 5 Ranch
Charlotte at Play
ImaginOn
Tree lighting at Southpark mall
Thanksgiving parade

Thanks!

Definite Charlotte at Play
the Parade and maybe the tree lighting
and Lazy 5 Ranch the ranch should take between one and two hours.
I question the other items due to I dont think the kids are old enough to appreciate the other items listed.

Sunny, are the others not kid friendly? We go to the gardens and museum here all the time so I know the girls can handle them if they are welcome.

Discovery Place is great for kids that age. I lived in Charlotte for 5 years but never made it to the botanical gardens. Lazy 5 is fun but is definitely a half-day activity at least.
