Charlotte Gay Neighborhoods
Charlotte is the largest city in North Carolina and, as of 2013, was the 23rd largest metro area in the United States. With such a large population, it’s no surprise that Charlotte has several different LGBT-friendly communities. The city itself is actually more liberal than many parts of North Carolina, which explains why it’s so welcoming.
The Uptown area is full of nightlife, culture, and restaurants. It’s also the location of the LGBT Community Center of Charlotte and a number of LGBT businesses. While much of the area is businesses, there are some residential homes. However, they aren’t often for sale, and when they are, they tend to be priced in the $1 million dollar range because of the location.
The Plaza Midwood area is centered around Central Avenue and The Plaza. This growing district has a variety of LGBT-owned restaurants, shops, and bars. It has a friendly, diverse population. Single family homes in the area range from $127,000 to $1.6 million.
The NoDa area is Charlotte’s eclectic arts district. It’s full of quirky art galleries, bars, performance spaces, and coffee shops. Homes start out at around $135,000. The most expensive houses in the area may cost $425,000.
