To step back in time, take a historic walking tour through Uptown. Charlotte dates from Revolutionary War times (it is named after King George III’s wife, Queen Charlotte) and its Uptown area includes the Fourth Ward neighbourhoods, Charlotte's "old city." The architecture and sensibility of this neighbourhood provide a glimpse of life in a less hectic time.
