    If you are looking for a place to grab some quick zZzZ's check out the flat benches by the window in B8, all other benches have arms so you can't sprawl out but these two blue benches are hidden gems!

    Very nice airport. Free wifi in all terminals as long as you sign up with one sponsors. There is a row of rocking chairs where you can recharge your phone or plug in. I also liked the rolling carpets

    For a great & cheap Southern meal or all day breakfast, stop by Bojangles at the end of Concourse B. Great biscuits, fried chicken, dirty rice and sweet tea! Sweet tea up on the rocking chairs b/w B&C

    One of the best airports in the US. It's huge, but easy to navigate if you pay attention. Great shopping over long layovers, or just chill in one of the quaint rocking chairs throughout the airport.

    Bad Daddy's burgers in terminal C are awesome. I'm a pilot based at the CLT and in my personal opinion it's the best sit-down dining in the airport. I'm a veggie and they have vegetarian options too!

    The main concourse is a paradise compared to the four gate areas. Grab some decent sushi there and rock the white chairs while you watch the mini vintage planes go round hanging above the sushi place

    The curbside valet is a great service; I wouldn't have made my outbound flight otherwise! Plus my car was waiting for me after texting my claim ticket number from the gate. Worth the $$$ in a pinch!

    Simply by its designation (CLT), it rates high on my favorite airports. Also, it has Bojangles Fried Chicken and an overall nice selection of food outlets. Needs more charger plugs at Gate B tho, imo.

    Head over to main Atrium between Concourse B and C to listen to live pianist. They are usually there in the evenings and sometimes during the day.

    If you're not comfy with restroom attendants, use the "family" restroom. My experience is that they're usually empty b/c families aren't using them so they're a breeze to get in and out. Just FYI :o)

    If you use the curbside valet and are TSA Pre Approved you can pull up to the airport and be at your gate in 10 minutes or less. You gota love that!

    There are many moving sidewalks which make navigating this expansive airport a little challenging. The rocking chairs are a unique southern touch. Also plenty of shopping!

    If you are in terminal B looking for tasty food at a decent price. Go to Bojangle's famous fried chicken and biscuits. Dirty rice as a side is yummy.

    If you have a long layover, take a peek at Charlotte-Douglas' public viewing spot. Watch planes take off, land, and taxi to/from the runway at one of the best airport views in the U.S.

    Executive Shoe Shine near Starbucks is the best of any airport or anywhere I've seen. They use a butane torch in one of the like 10 phases to melt the polish.

    Sprinter to downtown leaves every 20 minutes, gets to the Downtown Transit Center in about 20 minutes & costs $2 each way (2013). Helpful drivers will direct you to transfers for your hotel downtown.

    As you're walking through the atrium to get to Starbucks make sure you leave a tip for the pianist - especially if he's playing vintage Ben Folds - even if he misses a key or two.
