The Charlotte region is composed of 16 counties, including four counties in South Carolina, with the city of Charlotte serving as the hub. Located in the heart of the southeast, Charlotte lies within the southern Piedmont of North Carolina, along the state’s border with South Carolina. Charlotte is the largest and most accessible city between Washington, D.C., and Dallas, Texas. Due to its mid-Atlantic location, getting to Charlotte is easy from anywhere in the country or the world, hence its nickname "the International Gateway to the South."

Visit Charlotte welcomes visitors to the Queen City with three Visitor Info Center locations so visitors will find a friendly face who will help make the most of their stay in Charlotte. And while knowledgeable staff works at all three sites, Charlotte's call center (800-231-4636) can also assist with expert advice during the planning process.
