Providence Plantation is a beautiful yet quiet neighborhood that I am glad to call home. It is located only about one mile away from my school, Grace Academy. I have lived here for approximately three and a half years.

Due to the high amount of families in Charlotte, it's generally very safe. However, crime can't be avoided entirely. South Charlotte's largest problem would be drug abuse and addiction.
In general, South Charlotte lacks character.
