Planning to pop the question? Here are 12 places in Charlotte to get down on one knee.

Pro tip: No matter where you’re proposing, Diamonds Direct can help you do it with the perfect ring. The experts at the SouthPark showroom know everything there is to know about diamonds, but it wouldn’t hurt to read this guide for a crash course before you go shopping.

Ring? Check. Champagne? Check. The only thing between you and “yes”? The perfect location. We’ve labeled each spot based on the “couple vibe” they give off, but you really can’t go wrong with any of them.


(1) Romare Bearden Park

For the couple with lots of hometown pride.

Plan: Whether you go for a skyline backdrop by the fountains or head to a more secluded area surrounded by blooming flowers, this park will make for stunning engagement photos. Book a reservation at a nearby restaurant (like Haymaker) for a celebratory dinner after popping the question.

Pro tip: Uptown not your speed? Freedom Park is a close runner-up for the best park to propose in.

(2) The Metropolitan rooftop

For the athletic couple.

Plan: Attend a rooftop yoga or workout class and then propose overlooking the Charlotte skyline. Bonus points if you have fun brunch reservations after. 

(3) A swanky hotel

For the fancy couple. 

Plan: Take a staycation to one of Charlotte’s many upscale hotels and find a picture-perfect spot to get down on one knee. Our pick? Uptown’s Grand Bohemian hotel practically doubles as an art gallery.

(4) Crowders mountain

For the adventurous couple. 

Plan: Hike to the top (we recommend taking the Crowders Trail for a more moderate trek) and propose at the summit with sweeping views of nature.

Pro tip: Go on a weekday when it won’t be as crowded and head to a nearby winery to celebrate.

(5) Fig Tree restaurant

For the foodie couple.

Plan: Long hailed as one of the most romantic restaurants in Charlotte, Fig Tree is a notorious proposal spot. Order the famous elk chop ($42) and give your server a heads up that you plan to pop the question.

(6) Wing Haven Garden

For the low-key couple.

Plan: Take a stroll around the garden and find a quiet corner where you can be alone to pop the question.

Pro tip: Go on a Wednesday or Thursday so it’s not as busy. $10 admission for non-members (but the memories are priceless).

(7) Charlotte Douglas International Airport

For the couple that loves to travel.

Plan: Have a picnic and watch the planes fly overhead. Then, get a “better look” of the city and drive up to the top floor of the parking garage and propose with the Charlotte city skyline in the distant background.

(8) Duke Mansion

For the cultured couple.

Plan: This elegant Bed and Breakfast in Myers Park is surrounded by picturesque gardens. Check into your room and then stroll through the gardens with a glass of wine in hand until you find the perfect spot to pop the question.

(9) Rooftop bar or brewery

For the fun couple.

Plan: Who wouldn’t love a fun drink and gorgeous sunset with their proposal? Invite friends and family to come so you can party together after they say “yes.”

(10) Sports stadium

For the couple that loves sports.

Plan: We’re lucky to have multiple professional sports fields where you can cheer on your team and propose to the love of your life.

(11) A love-themed mural

For the Instagram-worthy couple.

Plan: Sure, the Confetti Hearts Wall in SouthEnd may be the obvious answer here, but we encourage you to think outside of the box. This Camp North End mural is super romantic and would make for the perfect engagement photos (we won’t judge if you work the words into your proposal script, too).

(12) Rosie’s Wine Garden

For the romantic couple.

Plan: Pack a picnic with their favorite foods and find a private spot in the rose garden to enjoy it with a bottle of wine. Rosie’s asks that you give them a heads up if you’re planning to propose (
