If you're ever in or near Charlotte, NC at night

On my recent trip to SC we rode through Charlotte on 85 (I guess?) around 9:30. People let me say this, as a semi traveler (I don't travel a lot) that sky line at night is gorgeous.

Seeing all those big building lit up at night with all sorts of lights and various floors lit up from either people working late or someone leaving their office light on makes the skyline glow above all the traffic, cars, and the moon. It makes you sit back and think "Wow what a wonderful place." I mean granted I was going about 80, that skyline from the back seat of a suburban just ...... wow.

Thats all I have to say.

No but it's close to it. I'm telling you what man, the skyline is beautiful from whatever view you can get.

last year at food lion auto fair (the fall show)
here was news reel from last year:



Transformers" Vehicles at Food Lion AutoFair
Tuesday, August 21, 2007

Visit the Food Lion AutoFair page.

There will be "more than meets the eye" at Lowe's Motor Speedway Sept. 13-16 when a pair of Autobots from "Transformers," the summer's hottest movie, make an appearance at Food Lion AutoFair.

Bumblebee, a yellow 2009 Chevrolet Camaro, and Ironhide, a black GMC Topkick truck, will be among the "heavy metal" on display in the spacious Food Lion Pavilion throughout the four-day automotive extravaganza.

agree about Charlotte skyline

used to work downtown in Charlotte, watching the Panthers play tonight & remember having to sit in traffic while they were building the stadium...I put in "butt sweat equity" instead of a PSL so I have to root for them...not looking good right now tho!

Yea the Charlotte skyline is beautiful. But you should Philly at night from 1-95 driving North. With the addition of the Comcast and Amtrak buildings, its is one of the top views on the Eastern Seaboard.

I say NYC, Miami, Philly, Charlotte and Boston as the top skylines on the Eastern seaboard in order.
