I am new to Charlotte and trying to meet some people around my age. I am mid 20s and looking for a place that has a "relaxed" like feel to it where people are walking around, sitting on benches, and just enjoying the night/day. I've been to promenade on providence and that looked really promising, but there weren't many people there.

I am not into the club scene so I am not interested in Epicenter.

I did like freedom park, but I'd like if there were venues (coffee, maybe place to grab a drink, ect) within walking distance of whatever place this is.

I live near Indian trail, so the closer the better.

Like I say, I've been to some like the arboretum, but it was just deserted. Nobody was around!

The cool people hang out in the urban east side. Jacks, P-Stone, Kennedys, Common Market, T-Street, Snug Harbor, Thirsty Beaver, wherever.

Uptown? guido wannabes, tourists, and the otherwise ill-informed.

South Charlotte? Bland people.

Lake Norman? Lake necks.

In the south Charlotte area (which is NOT all bland folks as stated above ) look at Stonecrest, especially once the summer rolls around when they do free live music on Friday evenings. But also, check out the Starbucks there, lots of 20-somethings there at times. Also, check out Bailey's. They do beer pong there on Sunday nights and lots of people your age show up.

Good luck, I know it must be hard meeting people all on your own in a new city.

Any other places? I've actually been to Bailey's. I liked it, but felt weird going to a bar alone and everyone else there was with people lol.

Also check out Sir Edmond Halley's in the Park Rd. Shopping Center. They do a trivia night that I've heard is a lot of fun and really popular with your age group.

Sir Edmond Halley's Restaurant & Freehouse - News & Events

Also, pick up a copy of Creative Loafing (most grocery stores have them) and check out what's going on around the city each week.

And finally, consider joining CHOA - Charlotte Outdoor Adventures. This is a very active group and many people show up as singles to it. You can just pick an activity to participate in and start meeting people

Carolina Outdoor Adventures - sport social outdoor adventures
