Charlotte - the largest city in North Carolina - is a haven of natural beauty situated in the heart of Mecklenburg County, which is 10 miles outside of the South Carolina border. Charlotte renters are 55 miles west of Durham, N.C.; 90 miles southwest of Greensboro, N.C.; 130 miles north of Columbia, S.C.; 130 miles east of Fayetteville, N.C.; and 165 miles southwest of Raleigh, N.C.

There are also Fortune 500 companies and 30 Fortune 1000 companies located in Charlotte. When renting in Charlotte, public education is provided by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS).
