Page 6 of 91 5 Nearly 250 years ago, Englishmen founded this beautiful city where two Catawba trading roads met, and they named her after King George III's wife. In the centuries since, Charlotte has evolved from a textile transpor- tation crossroads into a vibrant, all-American city and banking hub. But she is more than just North Carolina's biggest city. What is it about this place that keeps drawing people in? Rich in culture and history, Charlotte offers continuous surprises to residents and visitors alike. Whether your interests involve NFL or NASCAR, plays or museums, wine or craft beer, casual or fine dining, rock concerts or symphonies, there is a lot to discover in the Queen City. We invite you to admire the historic charm of Dilworth and stroll under the willow oak canopies of Myers Park. Wander art galleries in NoDa and duck into a neighborhood tavern in Plaza Midwood. Play a round of golf at Ballantyne and snap an Instagram-worthy shot of the Charlotte skyline from Midtown. Spend a day on the water at Lake Norman or Lake Wylie. Then grab a pint at a local craft brewery or unwind at one of our Zagat- rated restaurants. And while Charlotte can be both conventional and quirky, she's here with open arms and Southern charm. No matter where you're from or how you get here, the Queen City welcomes you home. WELCOME to the QUEEN CITY Charlotte's got a lot. How will you begin your Queen City adventure?
