CHARLOTTE: DISCOVER A LOT
It's a running joke in Charlotte that visitors only need to visit the Queen City once. Why? Because they end up moving here afterwards. That may not always be the case, but with a community so rich in captivating culture, colourful cityscapes, and cosmopolitan character, the thriving quality of life here is abundantly clear.
Charlotte's a city where Olympic-calibre adventurers rub elbows with culture mavens. A city that captivates both NASCAR heroes and finance leaders. And a city where Northern newcomers exchange smiles on the street with Carolina natives. Visitors are sure to be just as captivated too.
ASHEVILLE : EDGY, ARTSY AND INVITING
Asheville is that type of unique, special place that lingers sweetly in your mind and memories for years to come. The city's rich architectural legacy with its mix of Art Deco, Beaux Arts and Neoclassical styles is the perfect retro-urban backdrop to the edgy energy that emanates from the locally owned-shops and art galleries, distinctive restaurants and exciting entertainment venues. Known as an art colony, a healing resort and a home to notable luminaries, statesmen and bohemians, Asheville is one of the most welcoming, vibrant cities in America.
A bastion of cutting-edge art and technology in the Blue Ridge, the city also prides itself on its fascinating Appalachian past and celebrates this culture with annual events such as Shindig on the Green. While many cities underwent major overhauls in past decades, Asheville's historic and architecturally diverse downtown remains beautifully preserved. There's something special about Asheville, and the world is just beginning to discover it. This thriving mountain city features a funky and eclectic downtown, 30-plus art galleries downtown alone, a burgeoning culinary scene, a thriving live music scene and, of course, the awe-inspiring scenery of the Appalachian Mountains. Asheville is the ultimate playground, with a wide diversity of outdoor adventures and the ideal destination for an active and healthy getaway.
CHARLESTON: GOLDEN SANDS
Charleston, South Carolina is a priceless relic of the Old South, brimming with history, culture and elegance. You could spend your whole life exploring the enchanting Charleston beaches and remarkable award-winning restaurants – and many people do! Tranquil shoreline resorts such as Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, Wild Dunes and Edisto Island are your gateway to sparkling beaches, lavish accommodations, unequalled recreation facilities and mouth-watering Southern and coastal cuisine. Walk the English gardens of perfectly preserved colonial plantation homes, Charleston is a contemporary city with old-world charm, carriage rides and cobblestone streets – It is no wonder that Charleston has won the Best City in the US award in 2012. A Charleston beach holiday is your opportunity to experience and embrace the extraordinary charm of South Carolina while enjoying some of the best beaches the US has to offer.
