The Queen City

A rapidly growing city in central North Carolina, Charlotte is the state's largest urban center and a major regional hub for finance, industry, technology, and entertainment. Known largely as one of the country's major banking centers, the city has come a long way in developing its burgeoning tourist industry. Though it remains a business town, Charlotte attracts an increasing number of both domestic and foreign travelers, drawn by the city's reputation for containing nearly 200 distinct neighborhoods. Visitors often begin their exploration of Charlotte's eclectic districts in the center of the city, often called simply "Uptown." Famous for its skyline, this part of town contains most of Charlotte's museums, nightclubs, parks, and theaters.

Where to stay in Charlotte

To avoid driving or riding on public buses during your visit to Charlotte, book your room in or near the city center. You can find most of Charlotte's chain hotels in so-called "Uptown," the centrally located business district and hub of tourist action. Hotels near the airport provide good low-rate options for travelers on a limited budget. These spots offer rooms with access to major roads, allowing you to explore the region quickly and easily.
