One fun fact about Charlotte, its downtown is called uptown as which-so-ever way you’re headed, you’re going slightly upward.
From uptown’s Liberty Walk to ‘metalmorphosis’ by the Czech artist, from concrete mass to natural beauty, Charlotte has everything to satisfy the tourist-y buds except a wildlife encounter as Charlotte is the largest metropolitan in the US without a zoo . Sounds more of an honor than a limitation and why not plan a road trip to the outskirts, Asheboro, for zoo.
