Spend the Weekend in Belmont

Romantic Getaway

There’s no better place to spend a romantic getaway than Belmont, N.C. With its cozy eateries, its quaint shops that boast the perfect gift, its picturesque historic downtown located close to Charlotte and a host of area attractions, Belmont is the perfect place to spend time with the one you love.

Here’s how you can spend your romantic getaway with us:

On Your Way In

Settle into your room at the Hampton Inn by Hilton Charlotte/Belmont @ Montcross or try out the Villa at Water’s Edge for that extra romantic waterfront touch. Once you’ve unpacked and put up your feet for a bit, you’ll want to grab a bite to eat at one of our local eateries. If you’re looking for a light meal after a long day – and a delicious glass of wine, or perhaps some sake – Akahana Asian Bistro is the place to be. Start your meal with spicy edamame and spring rolls before selecting your favorite sushi rolls. We also recommend the spicy basil stir-fry before finishing your evening with mochi ice cream.

Morning

Once you’re up and ready to start your day, head over to area favorite Mugshots Coffee and Tea to try a delicious coffee, hot cocoa or tea. Mugshots sources direct trade beans to expertly blend signature beverages. Sips of cortados, lattes, loose leaf tea and even kombucha are wonderful ways to begin a morning in Belmont.

If you like to be on the move, take your beverage across the street for a hand-in-hand stroll through beautiful Stowe Park. The park, which hosts many of the town’s festivals and events, is one of Belmont’s cherished historic locations. Opened in 1951, Stowe Park is filled with walking trails, a fountain, a natural amphitheater with gazebo, playground equipment and more.

You’ll certainly need a perfect gift for that special someone in your life, so treat him or her to a trip down historic Main Street, which is home to a host of unique and locally-owned boutiques and shops. Your loved one might like a spa treatment or manicure at the nearby William Henry Salon and Spa, or perhaps a gift from Gigi’s Boutique.

Afternoon

Getting hungry? You’ll never run short of places to eat in Belmont. Try a Reuben at Sammy’s Pub or stop at Tastebuds Popcorn for a small snack among 150+ flavors – maybe champagne and strawberries popcorn?

You’ll also want to explore the beautiful, world-renowned Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. The Garden’s 400+ acres worth of spectacular gardens, sparkling fountains, conservatory dedicated to the display of tropical plants and nature walk are a must-see. Start off at the visitor’s pavilion and take a trip to Garden Store, which has a large selection of artwork, crafts and jewelry by local artists. Take a sweet stroll down the Woodland Trail and underneath the patterned sunlight of the Garden’s East or West Pergola.

Evening

Have dinner and dessert at Old Stone Steakhouse, which is the perfect place for a romantic night out. Try their shrimp scampi bruschetta appetizer and a perfectly-cooked filet or ribeye with a glass of wine from the extensive wine list. Wrap the meal up with a piece of the double-decker key lime pie or the peanut butter tower – perfect for sharing.

Before You Leave

For a smaller bite to eat and a vast wine selection, go no farther than Luna Hombre. The flavorful tapas will dance on your tongue alongside glasses of Riesling, chardonnay and more, or even a beverage from the new Fiasco Artisan Coffee Bar.
