Take time to unwind in the most unconventional of venues.

By Chelsea Pieroni
Uptown isn't just sky scrapers and high life: there's also a lot of history here. While cemeteries, as we can all agree, can be easily associated with all things creepy, this place is so old you that all that's left to appreciate is the history. Many Charlotteans enjoy taking lunch breaks or just a quick breath of fresh air while strolling through its paths, basking in the sun, reading on a bench. The headstones, all ornate and beautiful in their architectural gloominess, now worn down from the centuries, provide a surprisingly pleasing sight to the eyes among all the tall steal buildings.
