30 Day I hope you grabbed a nap because our feet hit the ground we’re off and running. We’re doing a segway tour with Charlotte NC Tours. This Charlotte Segway excursion lets you see more in less time than if you were to take a walking tour. Zoom through the area to see Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the Mint Museum, and Gantt Center. Plus, we extended our tour to see even more sights for just a few extra bucks we’re also seeing the stadium home of the Carolina Panthers and two cemeteries..

If you love getting spooked, look no further than this not-so-typical Charlotte history tour where you enjoy a scary evening stroll through the city. Pass some of Charlotte’s historic homes and medical institutions, see where the dead are interred, and enjoy the creepy mood as you’re guided by lantern. Along the way, enjoy your guide’s macabre tales, and learn about this American city’s ghastly legends.

Don’t forget to talk about your day, the things you saw and who surprised you.

Well, ladies since this is the next to last day, We’re hitting the ground with our feet racing. I’m excited to be back on US soil but also apprehensive because there are so many people still not wearing masks. WTF?
Do you remember the first time we used the Segways when we touring Europe together a couple years back. We had so much fun racing around on them. I’m excited to be doing it  with you again.

The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art was interesting because it is dedicated to the celebration and analysis of the strongest aspects of mid-century modernism as reflected in the holdings of the Bechtler collection.

But I was more thrilled about the Mint Museum and multidisciplinary artist Anne Lemanski,who is based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. She creates everything from two-dimensional collage to three-dimensional sculptures. Her work focuses on the complex, sometimes tense relationship between humans and animals, and bonus her work is part of the Mint’s permanent collection so we get to see it evolve.

The ladies were pleased to discover the cooler on the bus that I had delivered with several bottles of wine and chilled glasses. We might as well get into the mood because once these entertaining comedians get done with us we’re on to grab a burger at Big Daddy’s then off to the cemetery.

I was assured this wasn’t a typical Charlotte history tour.  We’re taking a scary evening stroll through the city. Pass some of Charlotte’s historic homes and medical institutions, see where the dead are interred, and enjoy the creepy mood as we’re guided by lantern. Along the way, our handsome guide delighted us with macabre tales while we learn about this American city’s ghastly legends.

BCoF Prompt: Which one of these 15 Things to do in Charlotte  https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g49022-Activities-Charlotte_North_Caroli... is the most fun?

I was surprised Neva wanted to add more activities to our day. Guess since the night is young, why not do another
Haunted Charlotte Tour with a pub added feature. I enjoy being at bars at closing time so why not. I”ll catch up on my sleep when I’m dead.

Our guide is a lively young woman dressed in colonial attire. She knows her history and her brews. I have to admit the first history and ghost tour the guide was easier on the eyes but our young lady on the second was a lot livelier and didn’t hesitate in joining us for drinks and good conversation. She was quite impressed with all we accomplished in the past month.
She slipped me her phone number and asked that I let her know when we’re traveling again.
