What could you do in Charlotte with an extra grand in your hand? There are plenty of intriguing possibilities. It just depends on what you’re into. If you can’t think of anything right now, it’s a good thing I’m here to help. Let’s kick around a few ideas.

5 Fun Ways To Spend $1,000 In Charlotte

  • 1. Go Electric With A New Scooter Or E-Bike

    If there’s one thing we know how to do in Charlotte, it’s getting from point A to point B without doing too much walking. Sure, driving is pretty much always an option, but sometimes you want to do something nice for the environment. Why not hop on your bike? If that still sounds like too much exercise, electrify your ride! You can easily get yourself an brand new e-bike for a $1,000. If you want to ride with the cool kids in South End, a high-quality electric scooter might be more your style.

  • 2. Plan An Uptown Overnight Date Night

    When was the last time the two of you really did it up for a date night? Get yourself dolled up and make a night of it in uptown Charlotte. I’m talking overnight. Start with drinks and dinner at one of the Queen City’s world-class restaurants. Rooftop is always nice. Then enjoy a live concert or theatrical performance. Make sure you spring for some good seats. After that, you’ll be ready to retire to your luxury hotel. Look at you being all fancy. Nobody leaves chocolates on your pillow at home!

  • 3. Catch An NBA Game Up Close And Personal

    You’ve watched NBA games on TV. Maybe you’ve had tickets for a Charlotte Hornets game at Spectrum Center. But have you ever sat so close to the action that you felt like the coach might actually put you in the game? I’m talking courtside, baby! With a $1,000, you can score a pair of seats so close, you’ll need a towel. You might even see some celebrities down there. But be careful. If a player dives for a loose ball, you could spill your beer.

  • 4. Find Serenity With Couples Spa Treatments

    For the ultimate in self-care, make your way to one of Charlotte’s premier spas for a relaxing and restorative day of pampering. You can be cleansed, exfoliated, detoxified, massaged, plucked, buffed, waxed, and polished from head to toe. Many spas also include cheese & fruit plates, herbal teas, and other seasonal refreshments. I feel better just thinking about it.

  • 5. Take A High-Speed Spin Around Charlotte Motor Speedway

    You wanted to have fun in Charlotte? Well, this is NASCAR country so let’s drop the hammer. If you’ve never whipped around Charlotte Motor Speedway in a stock car or open-wheel Indy car, you don’t know what you’re missing. I’ve done both and it’s amazing. You can choose from the NASCAR Racing Experience or the Mario Andretti Racing Experience. Either way, it will be one of the most thrilling and unforgettable days of your life.
