Now, I'm excited to bring to you a special edition of "Did You Know?" brought to you by the Charlotte Visitors Bureau. I now live in Charlotte, NC and I would like to give you some facts about the great City of Charlotte and the State of North Carolina.
- Charlotte is known as the Queen City. Charlotte is named in honor of the German Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg, who had become queen consort of British King George III the year before the city's founding.
- Charlotte is the largest city in North Carolina. Charlotte's is the 18th largest city in the United States
- We are proud to be the home of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, Charlotte Bobcats, Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Knights. We also claim Lowe's Motor Speedway as ours but it's technically in Concord, NC. Charlotte's favorite son is none other than the 16-time World Heavyweight Champion, Ric Flair. Wwwwwwwwoooooooooooooooo!!!
- I despise a majority of the UNC and Duke fans here in NC.
Thanks again. I will be posting later about UK's chances of cutting down the nets.
