24 Hours in Myers Park

Tucked away between quaint Dilworth and bustling South Park is one of the Queen City’s oldest and most prestigious neighborhoods, Myers Park. The tree-lined streets are beautiful and the mansions are plentiful, but there is much more to discover.
Head to Freedom Park to walk around the lake, enjoy the playground or challenge your friends at tennis, volleyball, soccer or basketball.

Rise and shine and head to the beautiful Freedom Park for a game of tennis or take a stroll around “the Booty Loop.” This is a 3-mile circuit in the heart of Myers Park, which is a staple for walkers, joggers and cyclists alike. From here you can take in the sights of the neighborhood all while being covered by a canopy of trees.

For those who crave an afternoon of shopping, look no further than the corner of Colony Road and Selwyn Avenue. Women’s upscale clothing boutiques include Monkee's of Charlotte and KK Bloom while outdoorsy gentlemen can check out The Sporting Gent. If you’re in need of a gift or quality paper goods, Paper Twist is your one stop shop. While in the area, ladies can top off the afternoon with a blow-out from Blo. The best part? They’re all on the same block.

Myers Park has a wide variety of restaurants that will satisfy your palate. Fancy a night of fine dining? Enjoy French cuisine at Lumiere on Providence Road. If tacos, tequila and alfresco dining are more your thing, head to RuRu’s Tacos & Tequila in the historic Villa on Providence Road.

End your evening at Ten Park Lanes on Montford Drive. Not a big bowler? You can also eat dinner, play bocce ball, cornhole or ping pong all while listening to live music on the patio.

Morning

For one of the best breakfasts in town, eat at The Flying Biscuit Café located in the Park Road Shopping Center. Their sugar-dusted biscuits will keep you coming back for more!

Afternoon

Want to show the kids a slice of nature in the big city? Then head to the Charlotte Nature Museum to experience wildlife through live animal exhibits and interactive education programs.

Evening

After dinner, catch a flick at The Manor Theater on Providence, Charlotte’s indie and foreign film destination.

Late Night

End the night with a cold brew on the patio at Selwyn Pub. If you’re lucky, you might even get a glimpse of Michael Jordan!
