Charlotte, NC is a wonderful place to live. You get the opportunity to experience all four seasons, with beautiful green scenery. It is a budding city for young professionals. Constantly expanding with new roadways, building, and breweries! Thats right! Charlotte is the city of breweries. It is also a very health conscious city, with several gyms spread throughout the area. If you love beer and yoga this is the city to live. The mountains are 2.5 hours away in asheville and the sandy beach of Charleston,SC is only 3.5 hours away. A weekend vacation is there if you ever need to venture out.
Review Charlotte
I absolutely love Charlotte! It is a very friendly city with plenty of activities for every age. Whether you love the outdoors or prefer to spend your time inside Charlotte is the place for you. Various hiking trails and the Whitewater Center are perfect for those who love the outdoors. The Epicentre and the Music Factory are both exciting nightlife spots. For those with families a few places that would have fun for all ages are Carowinds theme park, Discovery Place, and NASCAR Hall of fame. There is also a plentitude of options for shopping and restaurants. Shopping at Concord Mills is the go-to. All in all, Charlotte is a welcoming city that is great for people of all ages and walks of life!
I love the beauty of Charlotte! Charlotte is a very eventful type of place, with lots fun things to get into, no matter how big the crowd is. Charlotte is very family oriented. What I would change about charlotte is the amount of help there is to extend resources to everyone who may be in need. I feel that there are always people who say that there are many resources in charlotte to help families or individuals in need; However there's not much information as to how to access them.
