    It is? I think it's just a common connecting airport if traveling to or from small-medium cities in the US

          Yes. I want more friends here, but it's the 5th fastest growing city so people clearly want to move here.

    Not really. It's a city for bank workers.

    Honestly as a Euro who visited it

    I dunno, it just looks exactly like what you'd expect a medium town in America to look like.

    I just wanted to experience what that actually looks / feels like

    I found it comfy although a bit boring. But I understand why young people would move here. The weather is mild, it's got everything you need, it's not as expensive as the larger metros, it's easy to get around yet still feels like a proper city and not too rural. Overall pretty good from a functional perspective.

    Urban North Carolina in general has been on a growth spree for well over a century, with no signs of stopping. And Charlotte is the largest city in NC. Mecklenburg County, home of Charlotte, has grown in population by more than 10% every decade since the Civil War. The slowest decade of growth in that time, the 1970s, saw the county's population increase by *only* 14%.
    Urban North Carolina is heavily Democratic, yet very much pro-development and pro-business. There is a huge workforce, jobs available at every income level, endless acres of flat land suitable for development, plenty of rainfall, one of the mildest climates in America outside of the West Coast, some of the most well-behaved and well-integrated blacks in America, and a vast region of beautiful mountains a couple hours' drive away.

    I lived in North Carolina for a few years (not in Charlotte), my mom is from Gaston County (very close to Charlotte), and I have a lot of relatives in and around the “Queen City,” and can’t think of a good reason to visit Charlotte as a tourist. Going on a business trip, or moving there to work, absolutely—I think it’s the second-biggest financial center in the US after NYC, and there’s a large handful of tech, healthcare, and other modern-industry firms alongside banking and insurance. And it’s relatively cheap and fairly pleasant overall, but in my experience quite boring. Durham, where I was, and practically-adjacent Raleigh and Chapel Hill, have a lot more going on in terms of fun stuff that young urbanites might be interested in—much better arts (both fine and lowbrow, with very good local music scenes), culture, restaurant, and bar offerings than Charlotte IMO. Infrastructurally, the whole state is either suburban or rural in nature, but Charlotte feels more suburban in character. If there was anything resembling decent transit, the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill “triangle” could pass for a major city.

    But in general I, like posters above, broadly approve of NC.
