We Mined for Creative Gold in University City … and We Found It
An Exploration by Amanda Lea
Just 10 miles from uptown Charlotte, the University City area seems like a city all its own. Aptly named for the crown jewel of the area, UNC Charlotte, the area is rooted in education and fueled by innovation.
Between exhibitions, performances, food truck feasts, farmers market finds, nature trails and bookish delights, University City is an experience seeker’s gold mine. (UNCC 49er pun intended.)
This is the fifth installment of a new exploration series sponsored by OrthoCarolina, that encourages everyone to go for walks to discover creative communities across the Charlotte region.
