Uptown Charlotte is the largest business district in North Carolina. It hosts the headquarters of some major companies: Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Duke Energy, and more. 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 from the visitor info center. We visited 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. You can use 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. One important statue is Charlotte von Mecklenburg-Strelitz, the German princess and queen of the United Kingdom, which the City has named after.
