- Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, one of the nation's biggest hubs and one of its 10 busiest airports with some 700 daily flights, provides quick an easy access to Charlotte's City Center. 60% of the country is within a two-hour flight of Charlotte and most destinations on the East Coast are within a day's drive or ride on Amtrak. Center City Charlotte and the Charlotte Convention Center are just 7 miles from the airport.
- Easy access to diverse attractions and activities. Theatres, museums, sports stadiums, parks, restaurants, shopping are within easy walking distance in City Center or easily reachable by a quick cab ride.
- Great night life.
- At an average hotel room rate of $178 and an average daily meal cost of $42, Charlotte is very much an affordable city to visit compared with many other major US cities.
As Cvent put it: "From its Olympic-level whitewater rafting to its NASCAR heritage, award-winning theme park, and mile upon mile of beautiful scenery, the Queen City is an explorer's paradise. It's a haven of charming eateries and fine-dining establishments, churning out everything from signature down-home comfort food to international delights. It's a craft beer mainstay and a booming metropolis for big business. And with Southern grace and metropolitan style, it plays host to a vibrant arts and music scene, renowned museums that tout its intriguing history, and a professional sports stronghold that spans NFL football to NASCAR. Charlotte is what's now and what's next."
