My friend Chris Rodarte and I have created these fun #webseries episodes to explore different neighborhoods
around Charlotte, and then break it down into a deeper dive of each location we visit. 

We are taking viewers out of their comfort zones, into new spaces, on adventures BIG and small,
to places they may not have ever known existed or been able to find on their own. ✨

We will be covering fun food spots, music spots, places to explore, places to get a nice view of the city... you name it! We’re going to cover it! We would love to hear from YOU on places you would like to know more about, places you’re in search of but haven’t been able to find exactly what you’re looking for, your favorite spots that really touch your heart ❀️ 

We like mom-and-pop places and locally owned businesses. #Charlotte has SO many wonderful companies throughout the city with A LOT of heart and we want to give them lots of love for everything that they do for the community πŸ™πŸ½ and share them with y’all so that you can experience their magic as well πŸŽ‰

 If you have any places that immediately popped into your mind please let us know where we should go next!
 Own a fun business? Tell us about it! We want to spread as much love as possible and what better way to begin than feedback
from the Community?!? Give us a follow at @HiddenGemsCLT and you can view full episode's on Chris's Youtube Channel.

Thanks Friends! We can't wait to explore with you!

I am such a lover of art, so we explored some of my favorite murals around my hood @nodaclt for this snippet 🎨
