Welcome to Charlotte!
The largest city in North Carolina, Charlotte serves as the home of billion dollar corporations like Bank of America and NASCAR — and more than 730,000 citizens (35 percent of which are African American). And, as you obviously know, it’s also the site of this year’s Democratic National Convention.
That said, whether you’re planning a visit to the city specifically to attend the 2012 DNC, or you’re a Charlottean who doesn’t get many opportunities to explore the city you call home, Qcitymetro.com is here to help.
We’ve compiled a handful of helpful lists, highlighting some the top places to check out whenever you find yourself in our fair city. Just click on any of the links below and start exploring cool destinations (all in proximity to the Uptown area) for shopping, eating, partying and more.
