Located on the border of North and South Carolina, between the Smokey Mountains and the Carolina Coastline, it’s central location helped Charlotte earn the nickname, “The International Gateway to the South.” Charlotte, “The Queen City,” is the largest city in the Carolina’s. Known for being a “new” city and the second largest banking center in the United States, it has it’s fair share of history. Charlotte and its resident county are named in honor of Charlotte of Mecklenburg Strelitz, the queen consort of British King George III in Charlotte.

Uptown Charlotte, also known as Center City has seen unbelievable growth in the past few years. Several Fortune 500 companies are headquartered here, including Bank of America, Duke Energy, and Wells Fargo(East Coast operations). Museums, theaters, hotels, urban developments, restaurants, and bars make it a great place to work and play. Sport fans will not be disappointed with Bank of America Stadium – home of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers, Time Warner Cable Area – home of the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets, BB&T Ballpark – home of the International League’s Charlotte Knights, and the NASCAR Hall of Fame all located Uptown and are city blocks away from one another. If you want to get your feet wet, try the U.S. National White Water Center. These state of the art facilities give “big city” sports fans a lot to cheer about.
