Plan to be among riches when you book cheap flights to Charlotte. As soon as your Charlotte flight lands, you'll be in the second-biggest banking city in the United States. Known as Queen City, this sunny metropolis might be a business town, but cheap flights to Charlotte offer much more to offer than the Bank of America Plaza, Hearst Tower, and hustling 9-5ers.

When you arrive in Charlotte, be sure to explore the entire city, and not just one part. Walking through one of the many distinct neighborhoods, you’ll find a wonderful assortment of museums, food, and architecture to gawk at and visit. Here and there, you’ll see a cluster of skyscrapers, banks, and hotels, and then around the corner move into a completely different area, filled with quaint shops, bistros, and bars. Trendy travelers booking flights to Charlotte will love the NoDa (North Davidson) neighborhood is the most up and coming, where small and funky establishments exist side by side to create an underground village feel. In Charlotte, all of these aspects of the city reinforce the jovial collide of the Old South’s manners, precision, and drawl, and the New South’s energy, pace, and competition.

Charlotte climate

When you book flights to Charlotte, you’ll be able to enjoy the temperate, subtropical climate that comes along with the sun-drenched days and cool evenings. Winters are short and mild, bringing a bit more rainfall (and even a little snowfall) than the rest of the year. Summers are perfectly capable of sweltering, but reach a sultry perfection in early July. Book flights to Charlotte in the earlier part of the summer season to avoid rain and wind storms in late August. Spring and fall make for beautiful shoulder seasons, and distinct transitions from warm to cold. January reaches its coldest with temperatures in the 30s and 40s, while July heats things up to roasting temperatures in the 80s.

Best Time to Fly to Charlotte

Charlotte is at its best when it’s warm. Book Charlotte flights in late spring and early summer to capitalize on the sunny days and perfect golfing conditions. If you book flights to Charlotte too late in the summer though, you might come face to face with nasty storms.

Peak Season

Summer is the best and trickiest time to book flights to Charlotte. While the first half is dry and perfect for golfing and spending time outdoors, the tail end of the season can be stifling, and ultimately result in strong wind and rain storms. When the pressure systems in the mid-Atlantic are irritated, hurricanes sweep through the city, so late August and early September should be avoided.

Off-peak Season

Winter is incredibly mild here. If you book Charlotte flights in the months of December, January, and February, you can expect little rain, some snowfall, and cool temperatures. While fewer travelers are drawn to the city during this time of year, it’s the perfect opportunity to nab airfare deals and cheap hotels to Charlotte.

Getting around Charlotte

Your best bet for getting around in Charlotte is either walking or taking the Gold Rush shuttle. The shuttle provides free service throughout Uptown. You can also board a trolley from Historic South End to Center City Charlotte or take public transportation, called the CATS, throughout the city. If you’re staying outside the city, you’ll need a car. But avoid driving into and out of the city during rush hour. To help you find your way around the city, it’s a good idea to pay attention to the street names. Some of Charleston’s major streets have a different name once you cross the intersection and you’ll find that several streets have the same name. Needless to say, it can get confusing.
