Charlotte, known as the Queens City, is one of the major metropolitan areas in the state of North Carolina. Beyond the normal amenities larger cities offer residents and visitors, Charlotte is also home to a popular amusement and water park, the U.S. National Whitewater Center, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, a variety of museums, several prominent colleges and universities, a major international airport, and several headquarters of major corporations.
Additionally, much of Plaza Midwood has well-maintained sidewalks, many which are lined with grassy patches between the walkway and the road. Definitely utilize these so you do not have to share the roadways with oncoming traffic or cyclists.
The boundaries of Plaza Midwood include Mecklenburg Avenue and Country Club Drive to the north, Briar Creek to the east, Central Avenue to the south, and Hawthorne Lane to the west. The southwest corner of this neighborhood has the majority of the commercial spaces and may have more traffic than the more residential parts of the community.
