Liberty Walk is a self guided walking tour through Uptown Charlotte. It is marked by informative historical plaques in the sidewalk. You can also get a brochure with more information from the visitors bureau in the convention center. I highly recommend the walking tour itself...More

Visitors should spent a hour here reading the bronze plaques and head stones. Walk thru the park and try to recall the possibilities of life back then versus the modern times seen in the skyline surrounding. The old Presbyterian church on the south side, Science...More

We found this while following the Liberty Walk trail, which doesn't seem to be an attraction included in TA yet. This is a small cemetery with mostly 1800s people buried in it. This is not as interesting as the Granary Burial ground in Boston, which...More
