Attractions, Sightseeing and Events


Charlotte Tourism and Sightseeing
Located in the heart of the Southeast, Charlotte, the 17th largest city in the U.S., lies along North Carolina's southern border and is a halfway point between New York and Florida. Visitors to Charlotte will find a city on the move with a strong hold on its heritage. It exudes a bustling, cosmopolitan vibe with a down-home feel. Simultaneously, urban and urbane yet quiet and quaint, this hot spot of trade, energy, finance and culture, hasn't lost a bit of its sassy southern charm as it continues to grow. Known as the Queen City, Charlotte lives up to its royal namesake with its rich history and culture, a vibrant arts and music scene, and regal southern hospitality offered at every turn. It also serves as the North Carolina hub for professional and amateur sports including NASCAR, the NFL, the NBA and more. This new south city sits firmly on the rock of old southern appeal and is too fascinating to be missed.   Skip to Best Places to Stay. Best Time to Visit. View Map.
