Is it safe to walk around in the city area alone? Is there any place that should be avoided?

I've always felt pretty safe. I'd avoid the main bus stop terminal, only place I've really seen some shady activity.

Thanks for the reply. I am an Asian lady and this is the first time to Charlotte. Kind of concern over the safety. I guess it is safe to walk around alone in the city central alone in day time. How about night time? Is it safe to walk around? Any recommendations for hotel?

You should exercise normal precautions at night, as you would anywhere else. What’s your hotel budget?
