Small and clean, they say: one of the most recommended cities in America for families to move to because of the quality of life and the natural surroundings...


Uptown is Downtown?
Uptown is Downtown?
British and Germans settled at nearby Concord in the 1700's and discovered gold at the site where Charlotte is built. Keeping up to that, Charlotte is still a "gold-mine", being headquarters to the Bank of America and others makig it the second largest banking center in the world after NYC. Its the economic center of the Carolinas, being near the border with South Carolina.


Favourite spots:
The ranches and country roads (also close) around Charlotte offer a feel of feedom from the usualy conjested other cities of the States.

What's really great:
