Located just 15 miles west of Charlotte, Belmont offers access to all the conveniences of a major city while still preserving the sense of community that is characteristic of a smaller town. Within its 10.1 square miles, it contains a wealth of exceptional landmarks perfect for hours of exploration. Chief among these is the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. Visitors to The Garden can enjoy nature trails, an orchid conservatory and events such as the Shutterbug Photography contest. The Garden's beauty and elegance led it to be named one of the Southeast's best wedding venues by The Knot. Two rivers border the city-the Catawba and its tributary, the South Fork Catawba. The Catawba is home to the U.S. National Whitewater Center, a prominent hub of watersports like whitewater rafting, as well as many other outdoor sports.
