Best Neighborhoods and Areas To Stay in Charlotte

Before we jump into all of Charlotte’s most beautiful and unique Airbnbs, let’s have a look at the best neighborhoods to stay in. Whether you want to be right in the midst of the nightlife hotspots, in a laid-back family home, or in a quiet area near the top attractions, location is key. 

  • Uptown: Uptown is, somewhat confusingly, Charlotte’s downtown area. It’s the main financial center of the city, as well as the hub of Charlotte’s buzzing nightlife. It’s a great place for first-time visitors, as everything is right here. You can easily find a historic home or a modern loft, and explore the city’s attractions on foot. 
  • First Ward: This pretty neighborhood is also very centrally located. You can stroll over to the Levine Museum, the Spectrum Center, and the bustling 7th Street Public Market, to pick up some tasty treats. It has a lively atmosphere, and there’s always something going on.
  • Fourth Ward: This northwest corner of Charlotte is a thriving suburban neighborhood. It’s ideal for a peaceful stay, while close enough to Charlotte’s various attractions. It’s also the city’s creative hub. The historic homes and tree-lined streets feel like the epitome of the great American dream.
  • Colonial Village: Perfect for a family or friends vacation, Colonial Village is peaceful and pretty. You can find some fantastic bars, cafes, and parks in the suburban neighborhood, without venturing into the city center.
