I have officially been living in Charlotte, NC (The Queen City) for three and a half years. Charlotte is the first place that has felt like “home,” and I don’t plan on going anywhere soon. I’ve lived in many states, cities, and places across the country, and Charlotte is by far my favorite. That’s saying a lot considering I once lived in Hawaii.
Charlotte is growing unbelievably fast, and there are new restaurants, gyms, coffee shops, and fun events popping up constantly. I wanted to make a list with some of my favorite spots and places just in case you need some suggestions if you’re visiting, or even if you live here! I love to try new places all the time, and I will update this page as much as possible. I get asked at least once a day about Charlotte. A lot of my readers pass through, end up moving here, or want to plan a visit. I hope this list helps you plan your Charlotte adventures.
I’m always up for new experiences too, so please feel free to comment below with your Charlotte suggestions. I will also be including some of my favorite social media accounts because they always have great Charlotte suggestions.
It’s only fitting that I start with coffee shops because I spend 50% of my weekends at them. Here are some amazing spots for coffee that I love visiting.
I feel so blessed to be living in a city with so many beautiful trails. I still have a lot to try out. The Charlotte trails are incredibly gorgeous! My friends and I love spending our time walking, running, and biking them. We usually grab coffee and walk for miles.
