Charlotte, NC, US – Pictures – Upcoming Video

Charlotte is an ambitious and very rapidly growing city in the southern part of central North Carolina. It is the largest city in the state. As of 2006, the Charlotte-Gastonia-Salisbury combined statistical area (CSA) had a regional population of 2,389,763. It is the center of finance, industry, technology, and entertainment for the region.

Primarily known in the past as a business center, Charlotte is steadily developing its fledgling tourist industry; currently its central core is one of the most visitor-friendly districts in the Carolinas.

Charlotte Info Center 330 S Tryon St and 200 E Seventh St, are the main locations in city center, while a third is inside the airport. Brochures, souvenirs, and advice are available for first-time visitors as well as long-time residents.

Charlotte is a city that thrives on big business (specifically banking and is thus the second leading banking center in the country). Its most visible employers are Wells Fargo/Wachovia (the city’s largest employer), Bank of America, Duke Energy, Nucor, Sonic Automotive, Continental Tire NA, SPX, Lowe’s and Family Dollar.
