South End Day Trip

South End Charlotte
South End

The group met to carpool to the CATs station and take the train. Easy, fun, and no worries about parking!

Shopping, snacks and fun.

A beautiful day allowed the group to wander in and out of the variety of unusual, independent stores. The South End is mostly small shops with a variety of unusual goods and services. The best part of the day was the opportunity to chat, and learn more about each other.

Everyone enjoyed a nice lunch at The Suffolk Punch. It is a Brewery, Culinary Café & Taphouse, and Coffee Bar.  Melding art and science to inspire thought and challenge expectations, they curate libations, food, and products for those who understand the value of craft and embrace new experiences. The Suffolk Punch embodies the craft spirit in every drink served, every meal prepared, and every conversation fostered.

The lively South End is known for its vibrant nightlife, with a number of craft breweries and laid-back pubs, plus buzzy restaurants serving elevated American and global cuisines. In an 1800s mill building, the Atherton Mill and Market has chic artisan shops, while the surrounding area is home to a number of fine art galleries. The Charlotte Rail Trail is popular with runners and cyclists.

Lunch Together.

The next trip is Wed. April 10. The group will be exploring Uptown, NODA and UNCC. If you would like to join the Day Trippers to explore these interesting areas of Charlotte, contact trip leader Katie Grimm at, or Day Tripper Organizer We would love to have you join us!
