5 Charlotte Resolutions You Can Definitely Keep This Year

Kick off the New Year with resolutions you'll actually want to keep! No more diets and boring workouts, have fun this year and live your best life the Charlotte way with these 5 Queen City resolutions you’ll have no problem keeping.

Eat More Local Grub

Charlotte’s food scene is the gift that gives all year long, so this year make a resolution to enjoy more local grub. A must-do on your Charlotte 2018 Foodie List has to be dinner and drinks at 204 North. Located in Uptown, 204 North features fun eats like Nashville hot chicken and a cocktail menu that includes local favorites like the Pink Dahlia. If you need more ideas on ways to eat local in 2018, check out our list of Best Group Foodie Activities in Charlotte that you can tackle with your fellow foodie friends.

Focus on Fun Fitness

One of the toughest New Year’s resolutions to keep is to work out and part of the reason why is because some fitness routines can lack fun. So kick 2018’s butt and get into shape and find a new way to get fit at Aerial CLT. Aerial CLT specializes in silks, lyra and trapeze and focuses on building strength and flexibility through new skills. But don’t be intimidated you don’t even need to do one pull up to take a class with the Aerial CLT pro’s. They have two locations, so even if you find yourself in Uptown one day and Pineville the next, you’ll find a way to get fit at Aerial CLT.

Have More Fun

Life tends to get way too serious and it can be easy to forget to have fun. So make a resolution to yourself to make 2018 the year for fun. Have some nostalgic fun and feel like the kid’s from Stranger Things playing Dig Dug and head to Abari Game Bar. Abari, located in NoDa, is not just your average bar, it’s a barcade. With over 20 retro arcade games, vintage pinball machines and a full bar, Abari is the perfect place to grab a drink, play some Pac-Man and relive some of your best childhood memories.

Find Time to Get Away

Before we ring in 2019, make sure to cherish 2018 and make time to get away this year. A weekend getaway is the perfect way to travel when those vacation days are minimal and for when you want to find a way to escape everyday stress. So check out some of our favorite Charlotte getaways, but remember your weekend getaway doesn’t have to take you far. If you want to escape but still explore the Queen City, then a stay at the Dunhill Hotel is a must. Keep loving and exploring Charlotte, but come home to a new view.

Learn Something New

The New Year represents the start of something new, new beginnings, new opportunities and a chance to learn something new. Learn a new skill this year and head to Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen for a hands-on cooking class. At Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen you can take classes where you will learn the in’s and out’s of sushi making and the tastes of Thai cuisine. Chef Alyssa walks you through each step, teaches you techniques that you can use in your own kitchen and after the last dish comes out of the oven, you are ready to enjoy all of your hard work.
