One of Charlottes original streetcar suburbs, Plaza-Midwoods history dates back to the early 1920s and part of it still are recognized as a local historic district. Here youll find grand homes on wide streets, just steps away from some of the most-happening shopping and noshing in town. Central Avenue teems with good food, good buys and good people. (Cmon, where else can you buy a fuchsia wig, get a facial and then chow down on a chili burger?) P-M neighbors are wonderfully convivial, gathering often at their honest-to-goodness community garden, during their Winter Fling celebration, and when welcoming visitors to the Midwood Maynia festival and home tour. Whoever says Charlotte doesn't have soul hasn't been to Plaza-Midwood lately.
