Hotels in Piedmont
North Carolinaâ€™s Piedmont is the region between the coastal plains and the mountains. Whether you come here for a vacation or just to spend a weekend, the Piedmont, with its modern cities and countryside of rolling hills, is certain to provide you with some memorable moments. Guests staying in Piedmont hotels can visit cities like Charlotte, one of the principal urban centers in the region. Here you can see the Mint Museum of Art, which has an excellent collection of paintings, pottery, porcelain and gold coins. Bird and garden lovers must see the Wing Haven Gardens and Bird Sanctuary. In April and May they can also see the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Botanical Gardens. The kids will love Discovery Place, a hands-on science and technology museum that includes an aquarium and a tropical rain forest. Nineteen kilometers (12 miles) south of Charlotte is the McDowell Park and Nature Preserve where you can hike, fish or rent a paddle boat.
