Charlotte, North Carolina’s airport, the world’s seventh busiest (ranked by aircraft movement), is so unique a standout it could be added to a list as one of the city’s tourist attractions.

The big ole’ painted-white rocking chairs scattered as seating throughout the huge facility, create a soothing recreational calm in the midst of the inevitable buzzy stress of air travel. On a recent business trip to Charlotte, the old school front porch style rocking chairs, nearly all occupied in favor of the ubiquitous chrome bolted chair rows, seemed a noteworthy welcoming surprise.
