Rapidly becoming one of the most popular neighborhoods in Charlotte, Midwood has the perfect balance of the charming Southern neighborhood and the exciting lifestyle of an Uptown locale. Just a stone’s throw away from Charlotte’s downtown area, the characteristic Craftsman and cottage-style homes bring the right blend of classical style and unique flair. Midwood is one of Charlotte’s most well-known Historic Districts, and a drive down The Plaza will prove it deserves such praise. The beautiful Van Landingham Estate and its surrounding gardens are a perfect example of the beauty that you can find in Midwood. Many of the homes are situated on city lots that are usually about a quarter of an acre. There are a number of streets that have much larger lots – some up to close to an acre. The curving quiet streets of Midwood are lined with sidewalks and it is hard to find an evening when they aren’t filled with neighbors pushing baby strollers and walking happy dogs. Take a stroll down to the central business district, where there are cool furniture shops, a tattoo parlor or two. Don’t miss Nova Bakery and the No Grease Honey barber shop. You’ll also find a public library, the local Harris Teeter grocery store, post office, and an art supply shop in an old church. Even your dog will be happy for a visit to Commonwealth Animal Hospital, one of the city’s few animal chiropractic and acupuncture clinics. Pooches also love The Dog Salon, a self-serve dog wash with cool accessories for mans best friend. Craving Southern comfort food? Try Dish, a popular local hot spot. Order chicken and dumplings or the meatloaf served with a deviled egg and butter-topped biscuit. The neighborhoods favorite diner, Penguin, is famous for its fried pickles, hand-dipped corn dogs and their Hemi Burger. Ask for the burger Southern style – with chili, slaw and onions.
