Charlotte Location & A Little Charlotte History Lesson

Charlotte Location & A Little Charlotte History Lesson

Incorporated in 1768 and named for the wife of King George III, Charlotte has constantly redeveloped itself, growing into the largest city in North Carolina.  The Queen City, as she is nicknamed, has gone from being an agrarian township to a gold town, textile center to a national banking giant and a booming, major US energy industry as well. Presently, Charlotte is the second largest banking center in the US behind New York City.  

 

Charlotte NC

 

Visitors to the city are treated to historical attractions as well as a varied and vast range of events and recreational activities. Charlotte is ideally located to take in the wonders of North Carolina, as it is only a three-hour drive from the Atlantic beaches and only two hours from theBlue Ridge Mountains.  We enjoy four seasons, which lends to fabulous year-round outdoor activities.  The Charlotte skyline boasts breathtaking skyscrapers, most famously the Hearst Tower, housing Hearst Publishing, and Bank of America Plaza building which is one of the tallest buildings in North Carolina.
