Overview of South Charlotte

In 2013, American Forests recognized Charlotte, North Carolina, for its abundance of healthy trees, and some of the city's cheap apartments are found on those tree-lined streets. South Charlotte is known for offering an affordable cost of living, but the local theme park, Carowinds, is also a major attraction. This park features one of the country's tallest roller coasters, a large water park and the frightening Scarowinds haunted house during the Halloween season. Many residents buy season passes and frequent the park throughout the year.

A number of students make South Charlotte home because it's close to the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. UNC students also appreciate the thriving economy that allows them to earn money while studying. Jobs are also available for recent graduates and experienced workers. Using the price filters on Rent.com allows you to quickly find apartments in the area within your particular budget.
