The Mecklenburg County greenway system is quickly becoming one of the finest in the nation. Greenways are linear parks that connect people and places. Greenways are vegetated natural buffers that promote water quality, help reduce the impacts of flooding, and provide wildlife habitat. Greenway trails provide recreation, transportation, fitness, and economic benefits for all to enjoy. There are currently 52 miles of developed greenway trails in Mecklenburg County, with more being built every year.
In conjunction with many surrounding cities, our Greenways will result in over 100+ miles sooner then we think.
Check out all the maps and locations to start your journey!
Cross Charlotte Trail: In Cross Charlotte Trail is a partnership between Mecklenburg County and the City of Charlotte that strives to develop a 26 mile contiguous trail that will connect from the SC/NC State line to Cabarrus County. Once completed, the Cross Charlotte Trail will allow residents to travel seamlessly from one end of Charlotte to the other. Approximately 140,000 residents and 130,000 jobs will be within walking distance of the proposed trail and the adjacent greenways that connect to it.

Mooresville to Charlotte Trail: The Mooresville-Charlotte Trail is a partnership between the following Jurisdictions: Mooresville, Cornelius, Huntersville, Charlotte, Iredell and Mecklenburg Counties for the development of a north-south trail to connect and activate trails that would connect with corridors for the greenway master plans for each jurisdiction.

Save money every day by knowing where the “kids eat free” deals are around Charlotte.
We contacted every one of these restaurants in March, 2019 or later to verify the deals but keep in mind that they can change their deals at any time.
Also, in many cases there were several locations of a restaurant, and when we called them we got varying information. And finally, it’s possible that the person who gave us the information wasn’t 100% sure of the details.
So a good practice is to call the restaurant before heading out if “kids eat free” is crucial. Just follow the links below to get to the website and find the phone numbers there. Please find them on the restaurants’ websites.We will continue to update and add to this list. We are also including some kids’ meal deals that are not free, but are very inexpensive.
