We could all budget a little bit better in our lives, especially when it comes to eating, drinking and doing things in the Queen City. The CharlotteFive podcast broke down how to do Charlotte on a budget in the following neighborhoods…
Some of Sallie’s picks included:
Rent out one of the $1 dockless bikes, and now dockless scooters, and stop at Romare Bearden Park. Soak up the atmosphere, bring a picnic lunch and hang out in one of the most Instagrammable spots in the city.
Walk over to the Charlotte Knights baseball game for just $9. If you go on a Friday, you’ll even be able to catch the free fireworks show after the game.
Total: About $10 (not including food or drink)
Take a stroll along North Davidson Street and check out the neighborhood’s beautiful murals.
Some of Sean’s picks included:
Looking for live music in Charlotte? Look no further than The Music Yard, located in between Mac’s Speed Shop and SouthBound. The space hosts free concerts every Saturday. Who knew good weather and music could be such a dangerously fun mix?
Total: FREE (not including drinks)
Check out Akahana Asian Bistro if you’re looking for quality food at a cheap price. Sushi lovers, if you haven’t been, you need to go, especially since you can get BOGO sushi all the time. It’s the perfect place to bring a date, too.
Total: Can be under $20 if you do BOGO
