We’re a heaping spoonful of natural beauty and metropolitan splendor. We’re a blend of inventive chefs, talented artists, fierce athletes and mission-minded gamechangers. We’re equal parts funky and eclectic, traditional and charming. We’re a mix of night owls, early risers and all-day adventurers. We’re a dash of every different language and a sprinkle of the world’s cultures.
Want a taste of the town? Order a plate of barbecue or a banh mi sandwich from one of the food trucks roaming the streets. Admire the rare artwork housed in our many museums. Snap a selfie with an 18th-century statue. Sip something crafty at a South End brewery. Take in a Broadway show in Uptown. Shop stylish threads in South Park. Scale Crowders Mountain. Ride the Booty Loop in Myers Park. Groove to live music in NoDa. Toast cocktails in Plaza Midwood. Get behind the wheel of a race car in Concord. Celebrate at a cultural festival in Dilworth. Whatever you do in Charlotte, we invite you to make it your own.
