The Weekday Roundup: Dave Rawlings Machine, The Jazz Room, & Discovery Place
Fifteen sites uptown are represented in the Liberty Walk, an interactive tour of bronze markers telling the early history of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County. Pick up a brochure at the Visitor’s Information Center at 330 S. Tryon St., or just start in front of the Wells Fargo Plaza at 301 S. Tryon St., and follow the markers in the pavement for a trip through the historical adventure of the city’s Revolutionary War days. A “Charlotte Liberty Walk” app is available at handheldhistory.com to help you along.
Illusion (through May 10) highlights tricks of the eye and tactics used by magicians to inspire confusion and wonder. Warped mirrors, dimension-shattering stops, and technology-driven tricks wow visitors as part of the broader exhibit.
