Uptown Charlotte is the largest business district in North Carolina. It hosts the headquarters of some major companies like Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Duke Energy, and it's full of skyscrapers, museums, restaurants, bars, parks, sports, and events facilities.
We spent a whole day in the Uptown, strolling the streets. We used a free guide map we took from the visitor info center and visiting the Levine Museum of the New South, the museum of Wells Fargo, the Mint Museum, and the Spectrum Center – the home of the Charlotte Hornets NBA team.
If you are a history fan, you should take the Liberty Walk, using a free tour map with all the historical sites and stories related to the history of Charlotte and the Uptown district.
While strolling the district, we enjoyed the many sculptures and art installations – including the statue of Charlotte von Mecklenburg-Strelitz, the German princess and queen of the United Kingdom, which the City is named after.
