Welcome to Charlotte’s Best

We live, shop, eat, and play in beautiful Charlotte and we wouldn’t have it any other way. In celebration of our great communities, The Charlotte Observer is once again presenting Charlotte’s Best. This contest is truly designed to engage the community in celebrating the places, restaurants, and local businesses we love.

Last year, there were over 5,000 businesses competing, and we received more than 210,000 votes. Many of you took the time to vote and support those you think are the best!
