When you’re living in the Queen City, it’s easy to understand what makes it great. For those of not familiar with Charlotte, NC, we’re about to educate you on why some people say they would never leave here. If you’re looking for a new city to visit or just want to know what Charlotte, NC is all about, this list will help.
The South End is one of Charlotte’s many distinct neighborhoods, but people love going to South End for the farmer’s market, the art galleries, and. of course, the food trucks. You can also attend the South End Gallery Crawl on the first Friday of every month (and it makes for a great place to take a date).
Do you love to bowl and drink moonshine? Well, then you’re in luck because you can do both here! Try any of their 6 flavors of moonshine and then test out your game. They also have ping-pong, a full menu, and 32 craft beers on tap. What else do you need at a bowling alley?
Speaking of craft beer and cool neighborhoods, NoDa is (or North Davidson) is Charlotte’s art neighborhood and, similarly to South End, has a very specific feel. Hanging out in NoDa you’ll find live music, tattoo shops, food, bars, and lots of fun.
Think you’ll miss living in a warmer climate? Not when you experience fall and spring. Going through each change of season in Charlotte is a sight to see.
Music, art, culture – every year we get it all in Charlotte’s Freedom Park. The Festival in the Park is celebrating it’s 50th year this year!
Whitewater rafting on your lunch break? Sure, why not! The great thing about Charlotte is the abundance of nature all around us, but if you’re short on time or want to learn how to whitewater raft before tackling nature, you can easily do that at the U.S. National Whiterwater Center in Charlotte. They’ll make sure you’re a pro.
Need we say more? Charlotte is also home to the NASCAR museum.
Mountains are beautiful and you can hike these at any time. You don’t really need a better reason than that.
And to put the cherry on top, there’s us! Of course, you can’t have a fun night out in Charlotte without stopping into Howl at the Moon for a bucket of booze, some live music, and to dance the night away! Seriously though, we’re fun and we love dancing in Charlotte. Won’t you join us?
If you think this list of reasons to live in Charlotte is missing a thing or two, leave us a note on our Facebook page and we’ll be sure to add it! The more awesome things we add to the list, the less chance we’ll ever be bored in Charlotte.
