Historic low-key, relaxed energy
Elizabeth is where long-time Charlotteans live and enjoy the slower pace of this hidden gem. It’s home to trendy restaurants and historic homes on generous lots, as well the William Henry Belk House (department store giant) and North Carolina’s first movie theater.
Spend the Day
Kick start your day with a zero sugar, zero calories cold brew from OTPST, or shop at Earl’s Grocery for fresh-pressed juice and grits topped with smoked tomato gravy, cheese, and green tomato chow chow. Flip through some comic books at one of the largest and most well-known comics retailers in the country, Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find. For lunch, fill up on southern comfort food at Lupie’s Cafe including burgers, meatloaf, and even some vegetarian options. On a sunny day, head to Independence Park to walk one of the many trails or play some tennis. Or bring your own blanket and relax on the 19-acre green space.
