Neighborhoods
The neighborhood holds many activities and quite a few fun places to visit. This neighborhood is very safe and excellent for walking through the quiet streets. Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find is a great comic book store, carrying a massive collection of books and graphic novels. You could also visit The Visulite Theatre to take in some live music and comedy performances. As a largely residential area, there isn’t too much bustle, but the nightlife can still be quite enjoyable. Plus, there are small cafés tucked here and there. You will also find homes that have been renovated into shops or restaurants like Caswell Station. Elizabeth also offers cool options if you would rather have some outdoor time. Take a break at Independence or Elizabeth Park to enjoy its amenities or just have some quiet time.

RuRu's Tacos & Tequila has an excellent selection of authentic Mexican cuisine and mixed drinks. The burritos and quesadillas are my go to, but you can't go wrong with any of their taco selections. Make sure to check out their outdoor patio in their historic building!

Mr. Tokyo is the best sushi restaurant in Charlotte! The food is all you can eat but is ordered al la carte so it is made fresh to order. Just be sure to eat everything you order or they will charge back for the food ordered but not finished. The quality of the sushi is also top notch.

Local activities
I highly recommend visiting the Whitewater Center if you come to Charlotte! They have Zip lines, restaurants, beer, obstacle courses, rafting, kayaking, hiking, biking, yoga, paddle boarding, rock climbing, and ice skating in the winter... the list goes on and on. Excellent place for couples, families, and kids... there is so much fun here for all ages. I do recommend trying to go during a weekday as the lines can get crowded on the weekends.
