Looking for something to do in Charlotte while I'm waiting for a layover. We land at 6am and reboard at 12:15pm ...maybe a breakfast spot close or attraction?

I prefer not to eat "normal fast food" what other options do I have for eating? are there any new shops or amenities at the airport in the last year?
My friend has a layover in CLT for 3 hrs. Is there any good place to eat in walking distance
There is nothing "walking distance" from CLT. It is located on its own in the middle of a forest.
Hi, I will be travelling from Mumbai to Columbus via the Mumbai-Paris-Charlotte-Columbus route. Will a layover of 3 hour be enough at Charlotte? Will have to pass through immigration and will also have to change from international to domestic terminal there....
Yes, that is enough time. Charlotte only has one Terminal.
What is the legal layover time for flights arriving from Aruba to CLT to TYS?
Aruba has US Immigration and Customs Preclearance, so all you have to do in Charlotte is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, so 45 minutes is doable.
Anyone know some good hotels nearby with shuttle service to CLT? I have an overnight layover Dec. 15.
