Want to learn a little more about our Queen City? You can with a simple walk. They are free and give background on our great city history.
Charlotte City Walks return in person this spring from April 25-May 8. Now in their 10th year, City Walks get people outside to learn about the Queen City’s history. This includes the architecture and more. These free city walks are led by residents, historians, artists, activists, and non-profit leaders. Fun fact, this will be the first time the free tours have been in person since 2019.
In a city growing by 54 people a day (according to the latest U.S. Census data), Charlotte City Walks give newcomers and long-time residents alike the chance to learn about their community and explore issues affecting it, including equity, affordable housing, development, and transportation.
How to Participate
This year’s walks will take place over two weeks from April 25-May 8. You can register for a walk here. Once again this year, Charlotte City Walks also offers free, self-guided tours on the Clio app or available for download at citywalksclt.org as well. City Walks encourages participants to follow safety precautions, including social distancing. Masks are not required outdoors, but participants are welcome to wear one. Pre-registration is required for these events and space is limited.
