The largest city in North Carolina, Charlotte, is also the second-largest banking centre in the country. It’s also one of the fastest growing cities in the US, attracting visitors from all over the world to book flights to Charlotte.

The top attraction in Charlotte is Discovery Place, a hands-on science and technology museum that features permanent exhibits such as a tropical rain forest, an aquarium, dinosaurs with robotic models that roar and move, and an IMAX Dome theatre. The child-oriented Charlotte Nature Museum exhibits the animals and plants of the area including a Butterfly Garden.

To step back in time, take a historic walking tour through Uptown. Charlotte dates from Revolutionary War times (it is named after King George III’s wife, Queen Charlotte) and its Uptown area includes the Fourth Ward neighbourhoods, Charlotte’s “old city.” The architecture and sensibility of this neighbourhood provide a glimpse of life in a less hectic time.

Although primarily a business town, complete with futuristic high-rises and elevated walkways, travellers book flights to Charlotte to visit its museums and restaurants, and explore its fascinating history.

Getting around Charlotte

If you’re staying in Charlotte, you can walk around the Uptown area or take the Gold Rush shuttle, which provides free service throughout Uptown. There’s trolley service from Historic South End to Center City Charlotte, and the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) provides public transportation throughout the city.

To tour the outlying areas you’ll need a car. As with most major cities, traffic can be difficult during the rush hour.

When driving around Charlotte, pay attention to street names. Several major streets have a name change after an intersection. Also, several roads have the same name; they may all connect in some way, but it can be confusing for a driver who’s not paying attention.
