Charlotte Shopping: Located in the heart of the SouthPark area, SouthPark, a Simon mall, is a Charlotte landmark. Originally developed in 1970, it is also one of the largest shopping malls in the region. Anchored by Nordstrom, Belk, Dillard's, Macy's and Neiman Marcus, SouthPark offers stores ranging from luxury fashion such as Burberry and Louis Vuitton to casual staples such as J. Crew and Tommy Bahama. Five full-service restaurants, a Food court, Symphony Park and a beautiful outdoor amphitheater make the area a popular dining and entertainment destination. Symphony Park at SouthPark is the summer home for the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra with a free concert series every Sunday during June. It is also home to the Holiday Tree Lighting, the official kick-off to the holiday season in south Charlotte. In addition, shoppers are offered even more choices at SouthPark's newest addition, The Village, which comprises 48,000 square feet of specialty retail. This new concept of retail, dining and residential represents a unique lifestyle in the area, further enhancing the mall and village as one of the Southeast's premier destinations.
