Charlotte started as a small textile town but in recent years it has emerged as the South’s urban gem, a financial & business hub, thriving with rich culture and unlimited entertainment. Despite its incredible growth, this booming city of commerce has been able to hold-on to its small-town roots, offering newcomers & visitors that sweet southern charm everyone loves. Welcome to Charlotte!
While research, banking, technology and energy still make up the bustling center of commerce, the Queen City offers much more than just ample job opportunities. Downtown Charlotte (known to locals as “Uptown” or “Center City”) has it all and promises to impress. NASCAR, major league football and basketball, as well as minor league baseball and hockey, satisfy the sports enthusiasts! As for the art & culture adorers, they can be captivated & charmed downtown by a variety of museums, theatres, the symphony, and the ballet!
Stellar dining, shopping, & entertainment options are not only readily available in the heart of the city but also in dozens of the city’s historic & diverse, surrounding neighborhoods. A sidewalk stroll through Myers Park or Eastover immediately takes you back to the old south with views of extraordinary 1920’s estates on streets canopied by giant, old oak trees. Charlotte’s fabulous climate, complete with four seasons, provides an amazing array of activities and lifestyles to enjoy. You’ll find golf in Ballantyne, boating in Lake Norman, shopping in South Park, art walks & breweries in NoDa, innovative restaurants in Dilworth, nightlife in Uptown, and family fun in Matthews. There are so many exceptional areas in Charlotte, you may find it difficult to narrow down your favorite! But we are here to help!
Worried about being new to a growing city? Well don’t be! The good news is that most Charlotteans aren’t from here either, they are transplants! They hail from all over and, just like you, came for reasons ranging from work to weather – although some will tell you it was the southern hospitality and yummy biscuits that lured them here.
Please allow us to help you make your relocation to our amazing Queen City a smooth experience. We would love the opportunity to meet you and introduce you to the city we love to call home! Welcome to Charlotte!
