The South Park area takes its name from the shopping center, which was built here in the 70s, and is the biggest in the whole of North Carolina. With that in mind, staying in South Park offers excellent shopping opportunities, as well as a variety of gastronomical treasures to explore. Although Southpark is far away from the main highways, it takes just 10 minutes by car, at any time of the day, to get to Uptown, making it a great location.
South Park doesn´t offer the same experience as Uptown, as this is mainly a shopping area, but it´s a good place to stay if you have hired a car and want to enjoy all the nearby amenities.
