Ever wondered why Charlotte is referred to as the ‘Queen City’, a nickname Charlotteans are very proud of and one you will see all over the city on a visit there? The North Carolina city is actually named after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz who became Queen of Great Britain and Ireland after marrying King George III in 1761. Along with the history behind its name, Charlotte is making a new name for itself as the third fastest growing city in the USA, and the second largest banking hub after New York. Being a ‘car city’, needless to say it is difficult to get around by foot. So save yourself the stress of getting to and from Charlotte Douglas International Airport by booking your airport transfer on Jayride.com today.
