The Queen City continues to attract millennials to the area for a number of convincing reasons.

Low cost of living means more money for saving.

Charlotte is about 23 percent lower than the national average, with inexpensive housing playing a leading role in this figure. If you are moving to Charlotte, NC, you will also be thrilled to know that healthcare and utilities are priced considerably below average, as well.

Amazing road trip destinations

Getting away for a short or long weekend is perfect for millennials living in Charlotte. It’s just 2 hours from the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, Biltmore House and skiing, and the North Carolina beaches are 3 1/2 hours away. The #1 Place to visit in the U.S., Charleston, is only 3 1/2 hours away.

If you love sports, you’ll love Charlotte.

From Cam Newton to Michael Jordan to all your favorite Nascar drivers, Charlotte is the best place in the State to be to catch the big event and maybe even run into your favorite sports here in Uptown Charlotte.

Since no one is from Charlotte,it’s easy to make friends

The more people you get to know in Charlotte, the harder it will be to find someone form there. With the majority of your peers being transplants to the area, everyone is in the same boat when it comes to meeting new people.

Reasonably Priced Direct Flights to Travel the World

We know millennials have the travel bug. Charlotte Douglas Airport is a hub for American Airlines and offers many direct flights all over the world.

Four seasons are better than one.

From snow storms to pretty fall leaves, Charlotte has it all.

Public transportation is a valid option for getting around

Bus and rail are provided by the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS). Both of these networks are quite extensive and thoughtfully designed, so getting around the city is a breeze, even for a newcomer.

Charlotte is a thriving metropolis of business
