Road Trip: Charlotte, North Carolina

First Stop: Charlotte

Affectionately known as the Queen City, the International Gateway to the South and the Hornet’s Nest, Charlotte, North Carolina is the first stop on Road Trip: Wheaton World Wide Moving.  Located on the border of North and South Carolina, Charlotte is one of the fastest growing cities in America due in large part to its reputation as a national and international financial center.  Charlotte has been in the national spotlight in recent years most memorably in its appearance as the host site for the 2012 Democratic National Convention and as the headquarters for NASCAR Racing.

Whatever it is about Charlotte that brings hordes of people to the city every year – whether it’s for business trips, vacations, or as a relocation destination – the city has plenty to offer.  With a population of over 750,000 people (and growing rapidly!), Charlotte has a host of cultural institutions, entertainment centers, fine dining and restaurants, and inventive public transit systems.  Let us (with the help of Charlotte, NC Travel and Tourism) convince you that Charlotte should be your destination – and Wheaton has Charlotte moving companies that can get  you there!


Who doesn’t like to eat? Every good road trip needs good food, and lucky for us, Charlotte is bursting with unique and flavorful choices.
