This year, Charlotte is celebrating its 250th anniversary since its incorporation as a city in 1768. It is the first city nicknamed the “Queen City” (actually, now one of five cities so named in the U.S.) after Charlotte Sophia, the wife of King George III. Population is approximately 840,000. Some attractions in the Queen City include: U.S. National Whitewater Center, UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens, Evangelist Bill Graham’s Library, Wells Fargo Museum, and the Levine Museum of the New South, which features Post-Civil War history in the South.
Charlotte is considered the “Mecca of Motorsports” because it hosts the NASCAR Motor Speedway, and the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The hotel is situated north of the City Center (Uptown) and Charlotte recently installed the (Light Rail) Lynx Blue Line near the hotel which is a short jaunt to the City Center, where arts venues, music venues, shopping establishments, and restaurants abound. Online the City has produced an informative guide.
