Welcome to Charlotte, “The Queen City” and North Carolina’s largest metropolitan area.
Located perfectly between the verdant Appalachian Mountains and the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, Charlotte is a city where anything seems possible. Known as a hub for the financial sector (hosting more than ten Fortune 500 companies), Charlotte pairs modern sophistication with historical charm and the world is taking note!
In 2012 Charlotte played host to the Democratic National Convention. It was a logical choice, as this Gateway to the South is less than a two-hour flight from nearly 60% of the US population.
Home to the NFL’s Carolina Panthers and the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats, Charlotte has year-round excitement for sports enthusiasts. Affectionately called “NASCAR Valley”, this southern gem is also home to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, as well as several prominent race teams.
So sit back, relax and let the Crown City show off its delightful blend of metropolitan amenities and small-town magic.
