Passport Poppin’s Black-Owned Guide to Charlotte, NC

I am super excited to be taking the first vacay of 2021. My girls Jakiya, Anj, and I will be taking a road trip over MLK weekend from DC to Charlotte, NC. We are all part of BGM Studio Productions where we produce a travel show called The Next Stop. You can check it out on Youtube. It is a super fun travel series where we travel around the US (safely) during the era of Covid.

I have not taken a real trip in a while. In addition to being excited for my trip, I am excited to share with my PP travel fam all the things that I have planned for the trip. See the guide I have made below, and maybe save it for your next trip to Charlotte… It may just be a PP trip!
