Visiting Charlotte

Charlotte may be the Queen City, but this Southern belle—named after a princess, bless her heart—has a sporty side and an artsy soul. She’s home to attractions like the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the Carolina Panthers and is known for her superior public art, design, and museums. Add in a huge helping of restaurants featuring every kind of cuisine, and Charlotte is quite the catch for a traveler.

Charlotte succeeds at practical matters, too; no matter your accommodation preference, from business to family-friendly, Charlotte has plenty of hotels to choose from. And there are loads of affordable flights to Charlotte, too, since the airport is a major hub.
