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.
