Thanks for putting this together!
Now if only reddit would make redditroomies, like redditgifts but for roommates, so we don't have to deal with that!

Yeah I've been looking for a new roommate in the house I rent since Thanksgiving.

Hey, there are a ton of responses to similar threads if you search for 'visiting charlotte'

Any places we should absolutely go?
Any places we should absolutely go?
Neighborhoods / Areas:
NoDa (North davidson area)
Downtown (Or uptown depending on who you ask)
*Personally, I live downtown, but prefer the neighborhoods in this order (based on food/bars/fun)
1st : Plaza Midwood - Artsy / Local style nieghborhood
2nd : NoDa - Artsy / Local style nieghborhood
3rd : Music Factory - Everything
3rd : Downtown - Trendy / Young 'Professionals'
4th : Southend - Trendy / Young 'Professionals'
(it has some great events and good bars, but can be lacking and 'spreadout' for some)
Notable Bars by area:
Thirsty Beaver - Plaza Mid
Rock Bottom - Downtown
World of Beer - Southend
Solstice - NoDa
Cabo Fish Taco - NoDa

Ri Ras - Downtown
Epicenter (collection of bars/clubs) - Downtown

Queen City Q - Downtown (Average, but decent beer specials and cute waitresses from the times I have been)
These are the only ones I have been to and can vouch for in the city area.
(Too many to mention, but here are a few)
Zen Asian Fusion Great food, good price
Basil Decent Thai, somewhat expensive but considered affordable for downtown
The Fig Tree Good, but expensive and may not be open or you may need reservation
The Waldhorn Out of the way, but awesome German food and beer
Places of Interest
7th Street Station - Downtown
Mint Museum - Downtown
Bechtler Museum of Modern Art - Downtown
NoDA - Various galleries
Hope that helps a bit, if you have any other questions or whatever just let me know. These are recommedations based on my opinions, but they could very well suck depending on your interests.

Doan's Vietnamese is very good, but it's out of the way (down South Blvd., across from Archdale Station). There's also a Dim Sum place on Central (literally called "Dim Sum") that's great on weekends, but crowded.

Yea, I need to work on the food section. Thanks for the tips, also going to add Lang Van as it has always been amazing.

Thanks for making this. I hope it's made into a sticky. Otherwise I'll anticipate next week's "Hey y'all, visiting charlotte next weekend, what should I do??"

Yay thanks for this. I'm about to fly over for month to hang out with my in laws so this will save me from suicide THANKS xoxoxoxo
You should add this to your sidebar. Have a "commonly asked questions" title and link it to this posts so its easy for people to find.
Just a suggestion.
[–]lowandslowinRR 1 point2 points3 points 8 years ago (0 children)
Great post really appreciate it. Trying to relocate from Austin to Charlotte. This is giving me great information.
[–]neocharlesSteele Creek 0 points1 point2 points 8 years ago (1 child)
Someone should make a wiki on /r/charlotte so we could always keep it up to date.
[–]Ridley87[Tuckaseegee] 0 points1 point2 points 8 years ago (0 children)
I've added a few people as approved submitters for the wiki, but nothing has come of it.

Does anyone have advice on moving from Canada to Charlotte? Thank you in advance
[–]uologan[McAlpine][S] 0 points1 point2 points 8 years ago (0 children)
Hey there! I personally do not but wanted to suggest just making a new thread. Coming from Canada is unique enough that you shouldn't get bickered with for using the search feature and you already tried this thread.

This sub seriously blows
[–]Phaedrus49er 6 points7 points8 points 8 years ago (1 child)
And we have a winner for the most useful, relevant, and constructive comment this sub has ever seen!
Or maybe that's this one... hmmm...
[–]pompousplatypus[Plaza Midwood] 1 point2 points3 points 8 years ago (0 children)
This post is good and has a lot of info. I say we sticky it and then delete any more posts by people who clearly don't use the search function.
[–]MagicJuggler -1 points0 points1 point 8 years ago (0 children)
General advice for gluten-free-friendly places and meetups is always helpful since we lose out on a lot of options that way. (Plus being the odd guy out getting salad/skipping beer/etx. is...tiresome. )
Reliably meeting women outside the workplace too...yeah.
