Charlotte, NC

Whether you think of Charlotte, NC, as the “Queen City” or the “Hornet’s Nest,” history is on your side.  This heart of Southern charm and gentility was named after Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, wife of King George III at the time of its founding in 1768.  Thank British Commander General Cornwallis for the “hornet” moniker.  When hostile Charlotteans told him to “get out!” he grumbled that the city was a “Hornet’s nest of rebellion.”
