Your Introduction to Charlotte - the Heart of the New South©

Destination Southpark- South Charlotte| Food, Culture and Spiritual Refuge…

January 16th, 2008 Listed Under: Southpark, Things To Do Charlotte

South Charlotte has been one of the fastest growing and appreciating parts of Charlotte.

I’ve been writing all week about Southpark… you may remember me calling it the heart of South Charlotte. Have a peaSearch MLSk at the map below and you be the judge. Southpark is just 7 miles to Uptown, and 15 miles to nearby Lake Wylie… How’s that for convenience. Also, check out the blue icons at Southpark, one has a slide show embedded of the mall! The knife and fork icons represent collections of restaurants, just run your cursor over it to discover Ruth Chris, Morton’s, the Palm and more.

The red icons represent neighborhoods, some I wrote about yesterday, and some I am writing about tomorrow. Here then are the highlights of the Southpark area.

The Harris YMCA
The YMCA facilities throughout Charlotte will NOT remind you of “northern YMCA’s.” Here they feature state of the art exercise equipment (treadmills with personal TV’s), they are THE center for children’s sport- soccer, basketball swimming, plus step, yoga and pilates for the adults… and much much more.

    Wow. I mean, WOW! Could there possibly be a more comprehensive resource for South Charlotte? Corny though it may sound, you are clearly the neighborhood expert! The research that is represented here is amazing, Terry. Everything from your expansive photo collection in Charlotte, to your specific neighborhood posts, to your interactive map is top notch. Anyone looking to buy or sell in your neck of the woods would be doing themselves a disservice by calling any Realtor but you! Well done 🙂

    I grew up around Southpark and my parents still live there. It is an awesome area and even with the explosive growth, it still remains a nice area to raise a family. Quiet neighborhoods within walking distance of pretty much anything and everything! Nice post!!

    Great Map and Information on Southpark and Ballantyne in Charlotte, NC. I think the Southpark Mall is one of the best in America. Thanks for all the real estate information.
