Welcome to Charlotte!
Charlotte welcomes you to the 2012 Democratic National Convention. We’re honored to host the convention and are confident you will have a great visit. It is our desire to provide a great experience for each of you attending this exciting and historic event and for people throughout North Carolina.
As the largest city in the State of North Carolina, Charlotte boasts a mix of southern charm and modern sophistication. Just a short distance from the Time Warner Cable Arena you will find a thriving new American city and surrounding neighborhoods filled with wonderful places to eat, drink and shop.
We invite you to discover and experience all of the things that make our city unique. No matter where you go in Charlotte, you’ll find welcoming people and a good time. This site is filled with information on events, opportunities and exciting venues for you to explore and enjoy.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank the citizens of Charlotte for sharing their city and hospitality with the rest of the world.
So, whether it is your first visit or you have lived here all your life, I invite you to immerse yourself in the magic of Charlotte and North Carolina.
All the best,
Mayor Anthony Foxx
