The Suiteness Guide to Charlotte
Cosmopolitan Charlotte, known as the Queen City, is full of surprises around every corner. In North Carolina's largest city, visitors can enjoy countless rooftop restaurants and bars, fine dining, theaters, and museums in the sleek and sophisticated uptown. The city's core is also a hub for pro sports, with an NFL stadium, NBA arena, minor league baseball field and the NASCAR Hall of Fame located within walking distance of each other. Those who venture beyond the core will find quirky, vibrant neighborhoods like the NoDa arts district, ritzy retail and glamour in South Park, and one-of-a-kind outdoor adventures like the U.S. National Whitewater Center, the world's largest man-made whitewater river. Other must-see sites include the Billy Graham Library, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Carowinds amusement park, and Reed Gold Mine, site of America's first documented gold discovery in 1799.
