Charlotte Date Night: Copper + Amelie’s French Bakery

Charlotte Date Night: Copper + Amelie’s French Bakery

Because I’m a total nerd, I naturally researched why the city is called Uptown and found this explanation from NBC Charlotte’s Brad Panovich : “It dates back to when Charlotte was just a trading post at Trade and Tryon. The early residents of Charlotte would walk or ride their horses to Trade and Tryon to buy and sell their goods. They literally had to go uphill so they would say they were going ‘Up to Town.’ It later was shortened to just going ‘Uptown.’ As the city grew, it slowly went back to the term downtown, when the industrial revolution took place. It was later resurrected in the 1980s as a PR campaign to make downtown sound better.”
