The winter in Charlotte is relatively slow. Although it offers a fun, festive environment around Christmas, there isn’t much going on to justify a Charlotte vacation during the months of December, January and February. Though located in the South, Charlotte has been known to get a good snowstorm from time to time. Temperatures, however, are usually in the high 40s during the winter. If you are planning to travel to Charlotte during the winter, the beginning of January is when you’ll find the best airplane and hotel rates.
Although it isn’t the peak season in Charlotte, fall and spring are the best times for Charlotte travel. Temperatures in the Queen City are very pleasant, fluctuating between the 60s and 70s. Fall, from early to mid-October, is our favorite time of year as that’s when the leaves are changing colors and the city is at its most attractive. Though not considered tourist season in Charlotte, the fall and spring can still be a busy time, especially during students' spring and fall breaks. We recommend that you book hotels at least a few weeks in advance.
