Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte is North Carolina's biggest city, rapidly growing and a centre of finance, business, technology and entertainment for the region. The Uptown district is Charlotte's CBD, full of highrises, Fortune 500 headquarters, nightclubs, eateries, condos, parks and more. The area is safe and easily walked, or you can try the free Gold Rush Trolleys, minibuses which look like historical streetcars. Discovery Place is a great museum for kids, as is ImaginOn, the library/theatre. Families will also enjoy Charlotte's parks. For adults, venture out after dinner to the NC Music Factory, Whiskey River, EpiCentre or any of the great bars and clubs that can be found in Uptown Charlotte.

Like Raleigh, Charlotte is big on sports, and has a NASCAR track- Charlotte Motor Speedway. The Carolina Panthers are the city's NFL franchise,  and they play games at the Bank of America Stadium. The Bobcats play in the NBA, with their games taking place uptown.

A car rental is the perfect way to see the spread-out cities and sights of North Carolina. Book online at NC Car Rental (
