Charlotte, North Carolina, is a city of juxtapositions. Lovingly called the Queen City, Charlotte is named for Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Queen of Great Britain. It is also known as the Hornet’s Nest, a nickname earned after General Charles Cornwallis referred to the patriots and their shenanigans during the American Revolution as a “a hornet’s nest of rebellion.” Today, Charlotte is a hub for banking, the arts, a unique food scene, and sports.
Uptown Charlotte is very walkable. Modern architecture is broken up by older, historic buildings and parks. Hungry? There are so many choices. Looking to sit and relax? Visit one of the many parks around town. There are museums to see and sports to watch – anything you want the Queen City has what you are seeking. Take a look for yourself!
