·1 min read

It’s been a weird year, Charlotte, but our Google searches were pretty ... normal. As folks got vaccinated and began to emerge from a COVID quarantine bubble, Google queries for things “near me” started to reflect what life looked like before the pandemic changed our day-to-day.

Here are the top trending “near me” searches in the Queen City for the year according to Google’s Year in Search 2021.

  • covid vaccine near me

  • movie theater near me

  • covid testing near me

  • car wash near me

  • breakfast near me

  • hibachi near me

  • places to eat near me

  • houses for rent near me

  • bars near me

  • nail salon near me

It makes sense — people want to get vaccinated so they can spend time with loved ones, but also so they can see a film, enjoy a hibachi meal or hang out at the local bar.

According to data from NYdatabases.com, 81.23% of the population in Mecklenburg has at least one dose of the vaccine and 60.40% is fully vaccinated as of Dec. 7, 2021. So if you are out responsibly enjoying your time out on the town, make sure you tip the folks providing services for you.
