Dine at the Fig Tree Restaurant

Visit the Elizabeth neighborhood and have a romantic dinner date at a historic 1913 Craftsman Bungalow. A registered landmark, the Fig Tree Restaurant serves a seasonal menu of French and Italian cuisine and has a wide selection of international wines. Choose a table from any of their five cozy dining rooms. Have a seat near the fireplace or enjoy dining under the stars on the verandah on a clear night.

Stay at the Davidson Village Inn

A 15-minute drive from Charlotte and you’ll arrive in the college town of Davidson. The downtown area is known for its quaint shops and restaurants, and the campus arboretum’s rows and rows of exotic trees are not to be missed. Davidson Village Inn is in the middle of it all and you can also enjoy riding in a rickshaw for an amazing tour of the town.

Ride in a horse-drawn carriage

As if you’re in Central Park in New York, how about a special night riding through downtown Charlotte and the historic Fourth Ward district on a horse-drawn carriage. Besides enjoying each other’s company, you’ll love the interesting blend of the historic, revitalized, century-old Victorian houses and the modern luxury condominiums, urban apartments, and parks.

Experience the Charlotte art and culture

If you want to impress your date about your knowledge in music and performance, head to the North Carolina Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. From Broadway musicals to ballet performances, the Center hosts a variety of events that attract audiences from in and out of state. You can also visit the galleries at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, whose building in itself is a captivating sight—a four-story structure with a glass atrium and vaulted skylights.
