Want to get out and explore Charlotte? Bucket list looking slim? Think you’ve done it all in Charlotte? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, you’re in the right place.

As your hometown realtor, Allen Tate Realtors wanted to know: What Charlotte experience have you never tried but would like to? And boy, did you guys tell us.

Here are five of our favorites:

  • Tackle ALL of the high ropes courses at USNWC! (afraid of heights!)
  • I want to take a picture from the highest row of the Bank of America stadium. I hear the view of the city is gorgeous! And catch a game while we’re at it!
  • I have always wanted to do a historic Fourth Ward walking tour. There is something about strolling through a beautiful neighborhood.
  • Attending a STAX Bootcamp class!
  • All day food tour of Charlotte’s unique eats/pretend I work for CA and write about my experience

And now… all the entries so you can steal a few ideas for your personal Charlotte bucket list.
