Charlotte has various neighborhoods and districts, each with its own distinct charm. The “Center City” is referred to Uptown (not downtown) and is filled with hotels, condos, restaurants and nightlife.  Venture five minutes out of the city, and you will find a neighborhood to suit your personality.  If you’re into tree-lined streets and bungalow-style homes, then you can’t go wrong with areas known as Dilworth and Elizabeth.  If your style is more eclectic and artsy, Charlotte’s NoDa  and Plaza Midwood  neighborhoods are a sure fit; the family-owned restaurants, funky art galleries and array of music venues will satisfy an assortment of tastes. Or for the more traditional folks, Myers Park and Southpark are two of the city’s most popular and family-oriented areas.  Bottom line?  There’s a place for everyone in Charlotte, and it’s fun for the residents and guests alike to visit the various neighborhoods to get a taste of different cultures and styles.

Whatever you’re in the mood for, Charlotte will not disappoint.  One day you could rock climb and paddle down class IV whitewater rapids.  The next day you could cheer on the Carolina Panthers or attend an outdoor Charlotte Symphony concert.  As 20-something year-old girls living in this great city, here are some of our favorite places to have fun.
