Belmont is a quaint town filled with charm within 15 miles of Uptown Charlotte. It is surrounded by the natural beauty of the shores of Lake Wylie and the Catawba River and is a modern-day success story of flourishing growth and redevelopment. Belmont’s downtown is now a hot spot for hip restaurants with a blend of historical homes, old fashion street lamps, and brick sidewalks. The Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is a world-class 380-acre facility that features 11 exquisite gardens and host to many public events all year. Belmont is also home to Belmont Abby College, a small Catholic liberal arts college, offering undergraduate education.
