Charlotte – On the Move!

At the turn of the century, Charlotte was still a small town in spite of its favorable central location along the East Coast. But by the 1950s, Charlotte, North Carolina had exploded into the largest city in the Carolinas. Plentiful growth over the past 20 years has made Charlotte one of the southeastern USA's most multi-cultural and vibrant cities. New faces, new attitudes, and new ideas have made Charlotte a happening town, with new opportunities for seasoned and rookie Carolinians. Aggressive businessmen transformed Charlotte into a financial Mecca, with the city developing into a world-class home of finance and transportation. Today, bio-technology and energy are emerging markets, ready to fill the gaps caused by recent economic turn downs in the financial markets.

Charlotte is not a city without challenges and perhaps its greatest challenge is with its own identity. Charlotte remains tied to its roots in the old South, but has diversified, changed, and modernized as it has grown into a 21st century metropolis. North Carolina is one of the country’s leading places for relocation (both people and businesses), and Charlotte has been the a beacon in that movement. While the city still has thousands of locals who can bend your ear with stories and memories of the past, a large population of residents are new to the area, and bring with them new ideas, traditions and histories of their own. As time passes Charlotte's strength will be this diversity, and its people--new and old.
