Best Cities to Visit in North Carolina

Best Cities to Visit in North Carolina

  • Asheville: Nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville is a hikers’ paradise. It’s also locally known as the bohemian heart of the state, thanks to its many art galleries, local craft shops, and a weekly drum circle that always gathers a crowd. Must-visits in this city include the historic Biltmore House, the Folk Art Center and Groove Park Inn’s famous spa.
  • Charlotte: This is the queen city of North Carolina and a popular artsy destination. Here, you’ll find the popular museum mile, home to the famous Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. Bohemian arts corridors are also emerging outside South End and in NoDa, and art lovers will love Charlotte. Must-visits in Charlotte include the Charlotte Motors Speedway and the Bank of America Stadium.
  • Raleigh: This is the capital of delicious cuisine in North Carolina, essentially a foodies’ paradise. Its barbeque is among the best, not only in North Carolina but also in the nation, and the city is home to many craft breweries. The arts scene is also alive in Raleigh. Before indulging in some of the city’s most delectable dishes, first visit the world-class Contemporary Art Museum.
Winter in North Carolina

Winter in North Carolina

The winters are chilly in North Carolina, and warm clothing is preferred for visits in the colder months. But just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have fun. Winter is the best time to visit indoor attractions, such as museums and art galleries, and sample some local cuisine. If you love skiing, this is the time for you to shine. Remember to get a rental with all-wheel drive since the terrain might be tricky during winter.

Love using SIXT. The employees are extremely professional, I never have to wait for the vehicle it’s always on time or early. The General Manager Fernando is extremely professional, and assists with anything that customers need and he is very very detailed, and his customer service is probably the best I have ever experienced. Cars are always in great condition very clean and the service is impeccable if you need to extend the rental. Have nothing but wonderful things to say!! Will never go to another rental car service.

I recently rented a car from SIXT for a quick trip to South Carolina (pick up was at Charlotte Douglas Int'l Airport). This was my first time renting from SIXT and my experience was perfect. Our flight was delayed and we landed after 10:00 pm - which meant SIXT's desk was closed. Luckily, we were able to catch an employee named Avery at the booth in the parking garage. Avery helped us out and was incredibly pleasant despite it being the end of his day. He stayed late to set us up with our rental, and gave us recommendations for take-out restaurants that would still be open at that time. The young man who processed my car return today was also very friendly, polite and professional. Will rent with SIXT again!

Great experience with Sixt in Charlotte! My flight was late, so I walked up just as they were closing for the night. Despite the late hour, the team could not have been friendlier or more helpful! They quickly checked me in and had me on my way. Top marks for the whole experience. Will definitely rent from them again.

Arrived in Charlotte NC tonight and the rental company I used to use (dumping them tonite - hint: yellow banner and starts with an H) didn’t have a car I’d reserved. The folks at Sixt are my hero’s. They were able to offer me a car and saved the day! It was after all 9pm! My thanks to Donna P at the main desk and Avery and Easter at the booth for great service and saving the day for a quick business trip to Charlotte. I’ve used Sixt in Germany before but they’ll now be my preferred rental car in the US as well! Thanks folks!!!
