|This graveyard dates to 1776. It's one street over from the main drag, pictured above.|
Charlotte is an interesting city for the attractive blend of old and new, urban and suburban, all in very close proximity.
We took a walking tour of the historic 4th Ward, which is a lovely family neighborhood smack dab in the middle of downtown. People chatted to us in the street, waved from their porches, and all seemed to know each other's dogs by name.
I loved both the historic homes and the lovely local flora.
Outside the city, I had the chance to visit the McDowell Nature Preserve.
