Welcome to Charlotte.

Charlotte is growing – fast. We’re one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. and with that growth comes a lot more restaurants to try, shops to browse, festivals to experience and exploring to do.

Which is why we’re also growing here at 'Charlotte’s got a lot'. With so much more to see and do, we’re introducing Charlotte’s got a blog to help keep our visitors and residents in the know on all things Charlotte.

We’ll take a closer look at must-see attractions, as well as lesser-known neighborhood gems loved by locals, while seeking out new ways to explore the Queen City through events, adventures, nightlife and more. 

You’ll also see stories from Charlotte locals and photos from you – so be sure to tag your Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pictures with #charlottesgotalot for your chance to be featured on the blog.

Along the way, we want to hear from you. Want to know more about our local art scene or the next budding culinary star? Tell us! How about new brews from our award-winning craft breweries? Let us know! Send us a message on Facebook or Twitter, an email at, or a carrier pigeon. Scratch the pigeon idea – we also pride ourselves on being a clean city, and we’d like to keep it that way.
