Explore, discover and get lost.

Whether you are a 49ers fan, a casual shopper or an outdoor enthusiast, University City has so much to explore. Discover our great attractions, performing arts and sporting events, and don’t forget to find nature on 12 miles of forested greenways, enchanting botanical gardens and action-packed recreation parks.

“We attract people from all over the country here to train and do a variety of different things and there is a lot of good lodging. No matter what level you are in the company, people feel comfortable being able to stay in this area.” – Michael Martino, Wells Fargo

Exploring University City

With nature preserves, Charlotte’s longest greenway, heritage trees and playing fields, no wonder people characterize University City as naturally verdant. From IKEA and Concord Mills Mall to shops ringing a small lake and small neighborhood shopping centers in between, there is something to catch your shopping fancy. And be sure to refuel and restore your energy by dining at one of University City’s 150 restaurants.

Charlotte Motor Speedway and zMax Dragway will make race enthusiasts’ motors rev. Several nearby NASCAR team shops offer an inside look at racing. Twice a year, car collectors and hobbyists descend upon the Speedway for the spectacular AutoFair.

Verdant. Dynamic. Pulsating. Enjoy sampling the best of University City.
