Charlotte

"The Queen City" has been gaining rank in many polls over the past five years; it was named "The Best Place to live in America" by relocate-america.com in 2008, and it's not hard to see why. Recent renovations on the city have transformed this southern city into a cutting edge, modern metropolis, while maintaining Charlotte's "walking city" feel.

The City can thank a lot of it's recent expansion on Bank of America, the USA's largest financial institution, as well as nearly two dozen other Fortune 500 companies, which call Charlotte home.

Charlotte boasts attractions for everyone: first class theaters, white water rafting, Carowinds theme park, historic landmarks, hot air balloons; the city has everything to offer.
