I thought I knew what made Charlotte tick.
When I moved here in 2005 with my husband and two small daughters, we were mesmerized by the tree-lined streets, the brick buildings, the greenways, the changes of season and everything in between. I quickly learned to navigate my way through all the landmarks: the huge-steepled churches, the malls, the grocery stores, other large retail chains, restaurants, gyms, dance studios, swimming pools. I thought Charlotte was amazing! Everything money could buy was so close! Charlotte's Uptown is stunning. The buildings are unique and shiny and stand out. The skyline at night is breathtaking.
