The City of Charlotte known by its nickname, the “Queen City” of North
Carolina, is located in the county of Mecklenburg. It was named after
the German Princess, Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, who lived in
1744-1818, wife of King George III. And if you happen to be a resident
of Charlotte, be honored to be called a Charlottean.
Charlotte holds two titles to the United States. First, it is the 20th
largest city in the whole of United States. Second, it is the largest
city in the state of North Carolina. The Queen City is said to be a
central location where locals from the northeast and southeast meet.
Being the hub, it has become a transportation and trade area most
convenient to people from near or remote locations. Its bank industry’s
expansion has led it too to become the major U.S financial center.
For having Bank of America and Wachovia headquarters plus other
regional banking and financial services companies situated in its area,
it surely is an exposed city. Its economy has continued to progress and
has become the 5th fastest-growing city on the East Coast. How can it
not mature swiftly when the so-called Fortune 500 companies reside
there? Other than Bank of America and Wachovia, there are Goodrich
Corporation, Nucor, Sonic Automotive and SPX Corporation.
Even though central and understandably busy, Charlotte is a conscious
individual never oblivious for beautifying its façade seen in its
surroundings. It also treats itself with hobbies intense in energy
amidst hectic schedules and tight deadlines.
It has been holding major
events administered by the US motorsports industry including NASCAR. In
fact, Charlotte is expecting to house the NASCAR Hall of Fame by 2009.

skyline itself for its wide blue and clear skies with a lot of gigantic
modish buildings scattered around, leaving a futuristic and cosmic look
to the place. That, being the reason why Charlotte is the skyline and
the buildings are the skyscrapers.
