First started as a crossroads town, named for a young German-born queen – hence its nickname as “The Queen City” -- Charlotte has grown into the second-largest financial center in the country. Full of history, entertainment and the arts, residents and visitors enjoy an array from the Mint Museums, to plantations in the Federal architecture style, to the Charlotte Symphony, Ballet, Opera and more at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center.
