As the third largest financial district in the US, the Charlotte Metro has traditionally only been considered as a banking town, primarily because Bank of America makes Charlotte its base. However, the employment market spans more industries than just finance; hospitality and catering provide a large percentage of opportunities with healthcare not so far behind.
The Charlotte Metro is home to a health-conscious population who make use of the 30+ miles of green trails and outdoor space. Park Road Park is a hub of outdoor life with eight basketball courts, two horseshoe pits, six baseball fields, five picnic shelters, volleyball courts, playgrounds, trails, tennis courts, and an eleven-acre lake. If you're looking for a further day out then the Catawba River isn't far away and neither are a number of major lakes, all of which are summertime favorites for water sports enthusiasts. Great weather with mild winters makes these activities all the more possible.
Apartment living in the Charlotte Metro is a culmination of smaller neighborhoods, each with a charming character of their own, a mixture of outdoor life, assorted festivals, and a great place to nest or begin a promising career.
