It seems prescient that the city of Charlotte was originally established after a local gold discovery, and is now a prominent US banking city. Which is to say that Charlotte is full of treasures. The culinary scene has been making a name for itself with new takes on Southern cuisine, and the wealth of museums offer plenty to stimulate the mind.

The temperate climate also makes Charlotte an ideal place to bike, hike, raft, and race cars — and you don’t even have to leave town. For the easiest, breeziest entry into the Queen City, pick up your Charlotte airport car rental alternative and start moseying.

Charlotte favorites

Charlotte might not come off as a place for adrenaline junkies, but it’s full of opportunities for hair-raising thrills.

NASCAR Hall of Fame

You don’t have to be a diehard racing fan to enjoy hopping into the racing simulator or attempting the Pit Crew challenge. You can also see artifacts from big moments in racing history.

US National Whitewater Center

This facility on the Catawba River was created as a training facility for Olympic whitewater slalom race training, and is now also open to the public for wild rides, or just chilling on the 1,300 acres of forested land.

The Visulite Theater

Be forewarned you must become a member by paying a $1 fee, but this beautiful theater has all the intimate, coziness of a small venue with quality sound, so you can be up close to your favorite big name acts.

Yusuf is definitely the guy to go with in the Charlotte area. He made the process simple, was flexible, and communicated everything perfectly, all of which were my concerns with Turo opposed to a standard car rental. Our car was clean and as advertised as well. Will use him again if we are ever back!
Julian A.- November 4, 2019
Yusuf & the car were great. Would definitely rent from him again!! Outstanding experience!!!! Super flexible with pickup and returns!!!

Hit the road

While you could book a Charlotte car rental alternative on Turo to skip town to visit a delightful neighboring city, the natural beauty just outside of the city would be a shame to miss.

Book the perfect car
Crowders Mountain

Take your Charlotte car rental alternative less than an hour out of town for incredible hiking and rock climbing that will give you stunning views of nearby peaks and the Charlotte skyline in the distance.

Lake Lure

Best known as the setting of Dirty Dancing, Lake Lure in the Blue Ridge Mountains will give you the time of your life, or just a tranquil lake getaway, the choice is yours.

Boone

Head two hours north in your Charlotte car rental alternative to Boone, to make your way into the Appalachians. Work up the courage for the ziplines and Mile High Bridge, or go for the most rewarding hiking in the state.

Tesla Model 3 2017

This was a flawless experience. From the beginning, the pickup was incredibly easy, the driving was immaculate in this vehicle through mountain roads where the Tesla truly excelled and the charging platform was incredibly convenient with charging stations at the Asheville Hyatt once I arrived. All in all, this was simpler, more fun, and super cool as a new renting platform without all of the complexities of a conventional renting business. The Tesla Model 3 was just a heck of a lot of fun and Parker was always easy to get a hold of to answer any questions that I had throughout my trip. I would recommend to everyone.
