The city has been growing fairly consistently since the 1990s and the metropolitan area has nearly 800,000 people, making is almost twice the size of the state’s capital in Raleigh, which sits a short 160 miles to the northeast. The third-largest city by population in North Carolina, Greensboro is 90 miles away from Charlotte. Atlanta, GA lies about 244 miles away. If you want to travel from Charlotte to Williamsburg, VA, it will take you about 5 hours to get there by car as the two cities are 335 miles apart.

The weather in Charlotte is very mild during all seasons but summer, when it typically gets fairly hot and humid. But for those that like some fun in the sun it’s a great spot, as the city sees an average of 214 days of sunlight a year, officially making it one of the sunniest spots in the country.

Living in Charlotte

Like living in any major city, Charlotte comes with a number of pros and cons. The Queen City is a cultural melting pot of both people and food, ranking as one of the 10 most diverse cities in the United States. You can find high-end restaurants in Charlotte like Bentley’s Restaurant, Morton's Steakhouse, and the Bonterra Dining and Wine Room, as well as local favorites such as Midwood Smokehouse and Tupelo Honey Cafe.

Parking in Charlotte can be a bit of an issue, though. While there are plenty of parking garages available downtown, many are either expensive or offer private parking only, and street parking is typically tough to find.

Things to do in Charlotte

There’s no shortage of things to do in Charlotte, and for a night out the spot to go there’s the Epicentre in the heart of uptown. To get here there are several options, including the light rail; ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft are available in Charlotte, too. The Epicentre features multiple restaurants and bars like Whisky River and Howl at the Moon, as well as a full-sized movie theater, making it a great spot for both adults and couples.

The NoDa area on North Davidson and Montford area off Woodlawn are also popular nightlife spots for adults in the Charlotte area. And then there’s The Fillmore Charlotte that opened its doors to the public in 2009 in the heart of the NC Music Factory entertainment complex (recently renamed AvidXchange Music Factory).

The city has several popular annual events throughout the year as well, like the Taste of Charlotte every summer and Restaurant Week in the fall, where visitors can try some of the tastiest food around at discounted prices.

Charlotteans can also catch the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets play a game at the beautiful Time Warner Cable Arena. Or for those more interested in football or baseball, the NFL’s Carolina Panthers play nearby in Bank of America Stadium, and the Charlotte Knights, a Chicago White Sox affiliate, play in the scenic BB&T Ballpark uptown.

And there are plenty of ways to have fun in Charlotte without spending money, too. For families and those with little ones (and even those that don’t), the Kings Drive Art Walk is the perfect event. There’s plenty of fun for adults and kids alike, with lots of food, music, games, and of course, art!

The city of Charlotte boasts over 210 public parks, including Freedom Park, which covers over 98 acres and plays host to the annual Festival in the Park every September. For a good spot to walk the dog or to take the kids to play, Charlotte residents can also check out Reedy Creek Park, Winget Park, James Boyce Park, or Nevin Community Park.

For shoppers, the South Park Mall is the most popular shopping mall, featuring many high-end stores like Coach, Louis Vuitton, and Michael Kors. The area also is home to the Northlake Mall and Ayrsley Village, both popular shopping and entertainment venues in Charlotte. The Northlake Mall has over

100 shops, while Ayrsley Village has several bars and restaurants, as well as a Regal Cinemas Movie Theater.
