Destination guide

Belmont bustles with its own local scene

Sat just over the Catawba River from the urban sprawl of ever-growing Charlotte, Belmont is neatly placed for travelers looking to mix a trip to NC's largest city with a myriad of other, more local, southeastern treats. For those, it flaunts its National Register of Historic Places Downtown area, where redbrick facades mix with pretty Colonial Revival mansions dating to the 19th century, and it's got the world-famous Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden to boot – go there for over 380 acres of heather blooms, magnolias, and steamy tropical greenhouses. Belmont vacation rentals await…

Things to do

Belmont blooms

There's no doubt about it – the sprawling Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens are the number one draw here. Belmont vacation rentals on the south side of the city offer the easiest access to their beautiful tracts of flower-planted land, all interspersed with conifer groves, country cottage gardens, blooming azalea gardens – particularly gorgeous in the spring – and misty orchid conservatories with a tropical overtone. You can also head there for regular events in the summer, from open-air lantern festivals to horticultural lectures.

Activities

There's loads to get up to in Belmont

Whether you're rattling in a kayak over the whitewater of the Catawba River or learning how to handle a raft from experts along the North Carolinian creeks, you'll have plenty of chances to get the adrenaline flowing in Belmont. Then you can move on to the more cerebral pursuits, perhaps. How about a guided tour of the historic Downtown? How about a lesson in Chinese Feng Shui with local horticulture workshops? How about getting married between the botanical blooms of the Daniel Stowe Gardens? They're all on the table…

Weather

Enjoy the delights of Belmont all year round

While Belmont's proximity to the NASCAR halls and IMAX science centers of innovative Charlotte make it a true year-round destination, there are some dates in the calendar when you'll find those Belmont vacation rentals just a little bit busier. The first is with the spring blooms in April and May, which is when the beds at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens really come to life. The second is in the fall, when locals say the temperatures and daytime sun is prime for touring the old historic district.

Natural features

Belmont is surrounded by water

Belmont is wedged between 2 forks of the wide Catawba River, which eventually fuse to form one of the many legs of Lake Wylie. It's the waters of those 3 that really define the landscapes in this corner of the NC Piedmont. Take the Catawba River itself, which divides Belmont from the sprawl of Charlotte, and offers up rumbling whitewater rapids as it goes. Then there's the reservoir of Lake Wylie, expanding southwards to mark the border with South Carolina in a patchwork of creeks, inlets, wooded bays, and fishing stations.
