Charlotte Newcomers

You've either just moved to Charlotte, or you're considering it. The good news is that most Charlotteans aren't from here either. They hail from all over and, like you, came for reasons ranging from work to weather – although some will tell you it was the Southern hospitality, barbeque and sweet tea that sealed the deal.
