Charlotte is a dynamic and growing region with a vibrant culture- blending urban opportunities with southern charm and hospitality. An area that boasts eight Fortune 500 company headquarters, 6 professional sports teams, the US National White Water Center, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and an airport that is the national/international hub of US Airways, Charlotte is considered the “International gateway to the south.”
With a cost of living 5% below the national average Charlotte was recently recognized as:
- 1st best city for high pay and low expenses
- 2nd best city for recent college graduates
- 2nd best place for families to live
Highlighted by 210 community parks, a booming healthcare sector and a young and growing population it is no surprise that Queen City’s locals chose to make Charlotte their home while enjoying easy access to the best mountains, lakes and beaches the east coast has to offer.
Charlotte not only leads the state financially it is also leading the state in Veteran Service delivery. The first of four coordinated networks has been established in the Charlotte region, connecting and coordinating services for Veteran and Military families between over 40 public, private and non-profit agencies. Charlotte is quickly becoming a national model for public-private partnership and by welcoming thousands of Veterans to this region every year is leading the Governor’s charge of making North Carolina the most Veteran friendly state in the country.
