“Luxury” tends to be the word that most people associate with the Ballantyne community. Home to The Ballantyne Hotel, a swanky inn known for serving afternoon tea while simultaneously pampering guests in its lavish spa, this Charlotte suburb understands what it means to choose the best of the best.
Only a short drive from Charlotte’s center city, this exquisite pocket of leisure makes North Carolina look good. Its manicured landscape, architecturally modern buildings, and eclectic mix of fine dining offers its citizens the unique delicacies of a private community without the hassle of a gatehouse.
With 14 miles of sidewalks and bike lanes, active and hearty residents enjoy Ballantyne Corporate Park after a long day at work. Later, others venture to some of the popular dives in the area. Chain restaurants like Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, a build-your-own burger paradise, and Mellow Mushroom, a pizza-loving hub with more beers on tap than pies in the oven, make up some of the popular hangouts for residents of all ages.
When not chowing down at delicious Ballantyne eateries, people come locally or from neighboring towns to get a true shopping experience. Unlike malls or outlets, retail centers make this gem of Charlotte really shine. Blakeney shopping center, popular because of its old-timey feel, decorates its storefronts and avenues for every holiday, charming visitors into love with Ballantyne’s careful attention to detail.
Ballantyne, it seems, has a natural charisma. Charlotte’s urban center meets total relaxation in this ideally situated suburban neighborhood. Though it is not exactly quaint, the areas the Ballantyne touches are softened by the glow of this neighborhood’s growing radiance.
