Charlotte is North Carolina’s largest city and is an important commercial hub. Sprawling out from the towering Uptown district is an array of historic sites, including many noteworthy parks, galleries and museums. Be sure to check out the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden and the NASCAR Hall of Fame, among many others.

The Queen City is a great destination for families, with Carowinds, ImaginOn and Camp Snoopy among its star attractions. If you’d rather find some peace and natural beauty, you should check out Lake Wylie, Reedy Creek Nature Center and McAlpine Creek Park.
