Next to New York, Charlotte is the US’s largest financial center, home to many of the largest financial institutions including Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Wachovia. Some call it the New South. Despite its growing Wall Street vibe, it holds fast to its main street roots. Beyond the modern skyline, you can stroll through Old Town’s street car-era neighborhoods, where Southern mansions share space with vintage factories. In these Charlotte frames, you’ll embrace both tradition and modernity.
