The city of Charlotte is structured very functionally. Uptown is almost exclusively a business district. As a finance center, the skyscrapers of major banks are standing out in its skyline.
Residential neighborhoods are mostly to the South of the city. The many different neighborhoods are kept very green and usually have a park-like character. Nicely designed apartment complexes alternate with single family home neighborhoods, which usually are generously proportioned. The original marked city district has only approx. 700,000 residents; however, more than 2 million residents live within the entire suburban region of Charlotte.
In regard to cultural and social life, Charlotte has a lot to offer. All over the city you will find restaurants, pubs, bars, and some night clubs. So there are many possibilities to spend your evenings.
INFO: Charlotte is the 2nd biggest financial district in the U.S., only New York is bigger!
