Wander through Plaza Midwood, a Charlotte neighborhood steeped with history, with community historians Jeff Byers and Tom Hanchett, who've both written extensively on the neighborhood. Learn the history of the Plaza Midwood business district and meet some of its denizens – including the shopkeeper restoring a 1942 airplane inside his bookstore. This walking tour is in conjunction with OpenStreets704, an event that will close some streets to vehicle traffic to allow walking, biking, skating, etc.
Due to its popularity, this walk is full.
