According to the US Census Bureau, a total of 888,000 people have moved to the Charlotte metro – a decade-long growth rate of 59.6%, which officially made Charlotte one of the fastest growing cities in the country. With all the advantages and amenities of a major urban area, Charlotte manages to maintain a gracious sense of tradition and a southern small-town feel. It’s easy to see why the “Queen City” consistently ranks as one of the best places to live by multiple publications. Charlotte offers residents the opportunity to lead a fulfilling and balanced life, all while providing a below-average cost of living.
In addition to Charlotte's rich culture, you will also find a thriving economy. Headquarters for eight Fortune 500 companies, the area is the nation’s second-largest financial center behind New York City. It is home to corporate headquarters for both Bank of America and Wells Fargo. These two financial giants have helped fuel the incredible growth over the past few decades, leading to the Charlotte area being named one of the “Best Places for Business and Careers” by Forbes in 2013.
