I know what you're thinking, but that Wells Fargo History Museum was SO MUCH FUN. And FREE. And the historic walking tour around Uptown Charlotte was interesting and worthwhile too.

This is Day 29 of our 10,000 mile road trip across the US.

We started Charlotte's historic walking tour at the center of uptown, the intersection of Trade and Tryon, with bronze statues that represent Charlotte's past and future. We wandered around to find a statue of the city's namesake, Queen Charlotte. We also explored some parks, walked by the Knights' and Panthers' Stadiums, and explored the oldest Catholic Parish in Charlotte.

But for us, the highlight of the visit was the Wells Fargo History Museum. I know, it sounds cheesy, and maybe it is, but we LOVED IT. It's fully interactive and so interesting. You get to play with so much stuff! Well done, Wells Fargo. Well done.

Note: Remember that the museum is closed on Sunday and Monday. We did the walking tour on Monday but went back in on Tuesday morning because we had to do the museum. But if you're there on any other day, you can do this all in a few hours, no problem.


What's going on here?

We quit our jobs, left New York City, bought a car, and decided to spend the summer driving around the US. The plan is to hit at least 35 states and cover more than 10,000 miles. Watch from the beginning here:
