Plaza Midwood is one of Charlotte, NC’s most diverse and eclectic neighborhoods. Located just northeast of uptown, the area is home to a thriving business district, a picturesque historic neighborhood, and one of Charlotte’s most prestigious country clubs.
The focus of the neighborhood is The Plaza, a tree-lined boulevard that bisects it north to south, from Central Avenue to its intersection with Parkwood Avenue. The neighborhood gets its name from The Plaza and Midwood, one of its larger subdivisions.
The Plaza Midwood business district features an exciting blend of antique and consignment stores and art galleries. Boutique shops offer unique clothing and home furnishings and accessories. Locally-owned restaurants give diners the choice of everything from Southern homestyle cooking to authentic ethnic cuisine.
The predominant residential neighborhood of this area, Midwood, takes pride in its historic roots. Many of the bungalow-style homes have been restored to their turn-of-the-century charm and beauty. Pedestrian-friendly streets and sidewalks are shaded by crepe myrtles and ancient pin oaks, and lined by front-yard gardens. Annually the neighborhood celebrates and welcomes visitors to Midwood Maynia festival held in Midwood Park the first weekend in May.
