It has a small town feel, but Charlotte offers a decidedly cosmopolitan core. Uptown is bustling with restaurants, nightlife, cultural arts and musical entertainment.
The Great Outdoors
With a temperate climate and range of recreational offerings, you may never want to go inside. Check out the U.S. National White Water Center, sprawling Lake Norman or explore the city’s 37 miles of greenway trails.
