So my good friend Kristina read my blog and made some additions to the list via Facebook comment. They are definitely worth sharing.
9. Charlotte has great restaurants!
10. Everything in Charlotte is at least 15-20 minutes away, sometimes 30 -- no matter where you live or where you're going.
11. Try driving downtown. Ha! Good luck.
12. The light rail is super fun to ride.
I have yet to try #12 but maybe one day I will figure it out.
