Providence Plantation is definitely one of Charlotte’s most popular and highly sought-after neighborhoods. The original developers wisely drew the plans to “fit the land,” and preserved the rolling terrain and beautiful trees that are the hallmark of Providence Plantation. Over 1,200 homes make up this unique popular neighborhood in South Charlotte, and the attraction to the area remains strong. Take a look at my video of Providence Plantation - you’ll see why the neighborhood is so popular!

Providence Plantation Lifestyle
The lifestyle is wonderful in Providence Plantation. I know, because I live here! There are so many ways to get involved in the neighborhood and meet new people. My family joined the Providence Plantation Racquet and Swim Club when we moved to the neighborhood, and it was a great way to make new friends and enjoy tennis and swimming. There are lots of groups to join if you choose: book clubs, bridge clubs, couple’s supper clubs, ladies’ bunco group, men’s poker nights, playgroups and more.
