aka The Queen City has the feel of a small town in a big city! The layout of Charlotte doesn’t make sense to most visitors or newcomers; but once you spend a little time in the shade of the Willow Oaks and the cool water of the surrounding lakes, you don’t want to leave. We describe the layout of Charlotte very simply, like a bicycle wheel; Uptown (our downtown) is the “hub,” all the major streets span out from it through suburbia as the “spokes” to the outer loops, WT Harris, then Highway 51, and finally the completed I-485 loop, “the rim or tire”.
