Charlotte, or the Queen City, is a beautiful place to live in, with more than enough career options. The city, dotted with oak trees and housing the Butterfly Pavilion, is seeing an influx of young and educated professionals. While this has increased the cost of living, some neighborhoods remain affordable. It is a quieter place than some of the bigger cities, but NASCAR races and Carolina Panther home games see plenty of noise! From hiking at the mountains to fishing and water skiing at Lake Norman, Charlotte is accessible to a lot of cool activities. It’s also possible to catch a Broadway show at the Blumenthal Arts Center. If you’re looking to work or intern at a city that’s calmer yet booming with potential, Charlotte may make it to your list.
