South Charlotte NC
"The city has held on to some of the ways of the Old South – with buckets brimming with fried chicken, the roar of NASCAR rivalries and the wonderfully genteel “Yes, ma’am” and “No, sir” that seem bred into the mouths of newborns.
But the Queen City burst out of its corsets years ago and exploded into a vibrant New South mecca with three-quarters of a million residents, internationally recognized art museums, wonderfully eclectic restaurants and a thriving uptown that now leaves its sidewalks down until the wee hours of the morning.
One thing I have always appreciated about Charlotte is, unlike Old South cities such as Charleston and Savannah, it seems to matter less who your great-great-great grandfather was, and more what your contribution to the community is. There’s an expectation that residents will volunteer to help make their hometown better."
