Belmont, North Carolina
Where Southern Charm Blossoms
The charming city of Belmont sits about 15 miles west of Uptown Charlotte. Belmont is surrounded by the natural beauty of rolling hills, robust forests and the rambling banks of Lake Wylie.
Settled in the 1700s, the town was originally named Garibaldi Station. Later to be renamed Belmont (“beautiful mountain”) in 1833 because of its proximity to Crowders Mountain.
The small waterside town exudes a mixture of Old School charm and New South swagger. Especially on the Main Street drag where you’ll find everything from a trendy craft cocktail bar in an old jailhouse to a casual dive bar where friends are like family.
