Around Charlotte, there are many busses and people walking. The sidewalks and crosswalks are very safe and easy to use. Though there are lanes in some spots of uptown for bicyclists, the lanes are located on every road. Though you often see people walking, there is still a lot of traffic and it can sometimes get congested.

I live in uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. There are many nice restaurants everywhere you look. I have yet to not be impressed by one. However, around uptown, there's very limited grocery stores. As a college student, it can be hard to get everything you need, especially without a car.
I live on campus, so the security around the school is great. When I'm not on campus, I still often see the police patrolling the streets. Crime around here is rare.
