Do you think the responses will surprise you?

Charlotte’s got a lot. It’s an up and coming foodie city. It’s got a vibrant brewery scene. Its got fantastic street art. These are all some amazing highlights about Charlotte that most people can agree on.Β  We wanted to hear how our community of Charlotteans felt about their city and asked them in an Instagram Post, what is their favorite part about living in Charlotte? For a little bit of a twist, we asked “Wrong answers only” and the responses did not disappoint. Here are those responses.

It was no surprise that a couple of Charlotteans mentioned the ~amazing~ traffic in the city. According to a report by Patch, Charlotte’s been listed as one of the worst traffic cities in the U.S. Charlotte ranked 54th in the states and 38th globally, with “each driver spending on average 23 hours a week at peak periods tied up in traffic last year.” According to Biz Journals, Charlotte was ranked number 25 on a list of most dangerous cities to drive in the United States, after looking at the 200 most populous cities. For us, and many other Charlotteans, that didn’t come as a surprise.

But despite some of the negatives, it’s good to laugh those things off together as a community. We understand the city and all its highs and lows the best, after all. Let us know what are your “favorite” things about the city that weren’t mentioned above.
