A hub for history and family-friendly fun
Sitting just outside Charlotte’s city limits, Pineville stays active with a heady craft beer scene and a host of entertaining and educational activities.
First a mule-bartering post and then a stop along the Charlotte and Columbia Railroad, the sprawling town of Pineville sits just outside city limits. Aptly named for its stately pine trees, the town was incorporated in 1873. Visitors of the President James K. Polk State Historic Site can pay tribute to one of the town’s most famous former residents, the nation’s 11th president. The enclave has also caught Charlotte’s craft beer fever with hot spots like Pintville and Kit’s Trackside Crafts. In Pineville’s historic district, patrons can order a slew of suds and enjoy family-friendly fun.
