In Elizabeth, mature oaks
create a canopy that connects
historic homes, neighborhood
eateries and local retailers.
Along 7th Street, restaurants also operate as
community gathering spots. You'll see families
out for pizza at Hawthorne's New York Pizza &
Bar, experiencing a taste of the bayou at
Cajun Queen and lining up for a sweet after-
dinner treat at Elizabeth Creamery.
Cheer on the Major League Lacrosse Charlotte
Hounds from American Legion Memorial
Stadium. Or get in on the fun at Independence
Park, the city's first public park, which features
athletic courts, trails and a playground for kids.
Sip. Learn from Bob Peters, one of
Charlotte's best bartenders, at monthly mixology
classes held at Earl's Grocery .

first movie theater, now a live music venue. Catch a

Savor. The Fig Tree Restaurant
