The Queen City
Founded in 1768, Charlotte is a town with great historical significance. Named after Queen Charlotte, what started off as a small town has grown to become the second largest metropolitan area in the South, and the second largest banking center in the country. Home to the Charlotte Hornets, Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Knights, and some of the best restaurants and neighborhoods North Carolina has to offer, it is no surprise that the Charlotte metropolitan area is one of the fastest growing locations in the country.
Within miles of uptown is a variety of neighborhoods, diverse in style and price. Some of the most notable neighborhoods in the Charlotte area include:
Known for its tree lined streets and elegant houses, Myers Park is one of the most prestigous neighborhoods in Charlotte, and is home to the Queens University of Charlotte.
An area known for having a little something for everybody, South End is one of the liveliest neighborhoods in Charlotte. Previously occupied by many manufacturing buildings, South End was revitalized in the 1990s, and is now home to numerous restaurants, craft breweries, and one packed event calendar.
Known as Charlotte's first streetcar suburb, Dilworth is located to the south of uptown. Listed on the National Register of Historical Places, Dilworth is rich in history, and has a cozy, old-school feel to it. Featuring large oak trees and beautiful bungalows, it is easy to see why houses in this neighborhood are so high in demand.
