Charlotte’s original first four neighborhoods, known as Wards, are now the site of extraordinary new development. Internationally-known corporations make their home here alongside cool, glass-filled condo high-rises. Our original historic district, Fourth Ward, still features early Victorian residences. Revived under the moniker “Uptown” during a PR campaign in the 80’s, Charlotte’s Center City is an exciting place to live with an intensifying urban experience at your doorstep. Gorgeous parks, such as Romare Bearden and First Ward Park, offer a chance to get outside and admire our award-winning skyline. The choice of restaurants and eateries is endless. Hang out in the entertainment complex EpiCentre, take in a Broadway show at The Belk Theater, or browse one of Charlotte’s many special museums. Discovery Place and Imaginon delight young Charlotteans. Watch the Charlotte Hornets, Charlotte Knights, or the Carolina Panthers play all inside of Uptown.
