UP­TOWN—

Char­lotte’s down­town, called Up­town by lo­cal Char­lot­teans, is where much of the city’s busi­ness hap­pens. As far as at­trac­tions go, arts fig­ure promi­nently at a hand­ful of mu­se­ums, like the Mint, and at a few no­table per­form­ing arts cen­ters. The Fourth Ward, full of charm­ing res­i­dences from eras past, pro­vides a scenic place to stroll. Trade and Tryon streets,. Map 2 E4
