Although the legendary UNC Tarheels (where Michael Jordan once played) and the Charlotte Hornets (a team that has Michael Jordan as the majority owner) are central parts of Charlotte’s sports lore, NASCAR is most certainly king in the Queen City. Here you can find the sport’s Hall of Fame, as well as some of its most famous annual events in the Coca-Cola 600, the Bank of America 500, and the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race.
Charlotte has made a unique mark on history in film, government, and culture. Nearly the entire Hunger Games saga was shot in North Carolina, with a number of scenes being set right in the middle of downtown at the Knight Theater on Tryon Street. The city has an impressive collection of museums with the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the Live Museum of the New South, and the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture. When it comes to the city’s place in American history, urban legend says that patriots from across North Carolina came to Charlotte to sign the Mecklenberg Declaration of Independence more than a year before the official declaration was signed in Philadelphia. Whether this is fact or fiction we may never know, but what we do know is that great stories are woven into the fabric of this great city: come write your own!
