If you're in South Charlotte, check out the Ballantyne neighborhood and the four stone monuments at the corner of Ballantyne Commons Parkway and US 521 They are often referred to as the Gateway to Ballantyne (a Scottish word meaning "hospitality"). The monuments are each themed (transportation, finance, human spirit and technology) and there is a plaque in front of each that tells you what the carved stone icons represent.

Directions: South Charlotte (I-485 at Johnston Road exit)
