Charlotte, North Carolina

The APWA North Carolina Chapter looks forward to welcoming you to Charlotte and the 2013 North American Snow Conference

The Queen City is the largest and most accessible city between Washington, D.C., and Dallas. Due to its mid-Atlantic location, getting to Charlotte is easy from anywhere in the country, hence its nickname “the International Gateway to the South.” But there's a lot more to experience in Charlotte! Beyond the modern skyline of Center City you'll find streetcar-era communities where buildings range from vintage factories to grand southern estates. Check out one of the many NASCAR race shops in the area or take time to admire turn-of-the-century architecture and traditional tree-lined thoroughfares on your way to one of Charlotte's award-winning soul food, BBQ or international restaurants. When the sun goes down, you'll find plenty to keep you entertained at the NC Music Factory, where you can discover some of the coolest bars, restaurants, pubs and live music along a signature district set amid historic mill buildings. Looking for a quiet place to unwind after a long day at the Snow Conference? Mecklenburg County has the perfect place for you to relax with more than 210 parks located on more than 17,600 acres of parkland. All of this within walking distance or a short taxi, bus or trolley ride from the Snow Conference hotels!
