Charlotte NC, called the “Queen City,” after Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Germany, offers a rich variety of recreational and cultural resources. The downtown Charlotte area is also known as “Center City” and “Uptown”, because this area is geographically the highest point in Mecklenburg County. Many of Uptown Charlotte’s attractions are within walking distance, and all are accessible by public transportation. You’ll find shops, restaurants, and clubs offering a wide range of shopping, dining, and entertainment choices. Uptown also boasts a lively arts scene, including world class performances of the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center and Spirit Square, as well as The Mint Museum of Craft & Design, and live music venues for everyone from young professionals to empty nesters. Discovery Place, which features an IMAX theater and a planetarium, is one of the nation’s leading hands-on science museums.
From the Arts and Crafts bungalows in Dilworth, Elizabeth, and the NoDa Arts District to the spacious mansions of Myers Park, Eastover, and Cotswald, and to the newer communities in the suburbs, you’ll find Charlotte real estate for every lifestyle, and reflected in each neighborhood’s unique history and personality. Residents of Charlotte enjoy four distinct seasons noted for their moderation. Winters are short and cool, with a January daily average of 40 degrees. The area receives about 4 inches of snow during the winter. July’s average temperature is 78.
If you’re looking for real estate outside of Charlotte, the surrounding Mecklenburg County towns of Matthews, Lake Wylie, Pineville, Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson now possess an independent spirit of their own.
