City/town information
1. Charlotte was the location of the United States' first gold rush in 1799: The Carolina Gold Rush began in 1799 after the nation's first golden nugget was found in Cabarrus County by a 12-year old boy. A second nugget was found in 1803, which led to Carolina farmers checking their land for gold and mining in local stream beds until the 1830s. Today, Reed Gold Mine, the location where the first nugget was found, is a historic landmark in Cabarrus County where tourists can visit and mine for their own gems! 2. Charlotte has made quite a few appearances on the big and small screens: The QC (Queen City) is not only an attractive spot to live for most Charlotteans, but it's also caught the eye of some major film and television producers over the years. Famous movies that have filmed in Charlotte include Shallow Hal, The Hunger Games, Sully, Talladega Nights, and Days of Thunder. Some awesome TV shows have been filmed here too! Homeland is one locals loved to see being shot around town from 2011 - 2013, Banshee and The Bachelorette are all TV shows that have made Charlotte famous on the small screen. 3. The Charlotte Hornets' famous name dates back to 1780: Our beloved Hornets got their name from British General Charles Cornwallis. During the Revolutionary War, General Cornwallis marched through Charlotte where he met opposing troops. As a result Cornwallis nicknamed Charlotte as "a Hornets Nest of Rebellion," and the name definitely stuck! Centuries later, Charlotte is still referred to as the "Hornets Nest" and our favorite basketball team is named after it. 4. The city of Charlotte is named after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, who was the Queen of Great Britain at the time the town was founded. This is why Charlotte is fondly nicknamed the Queen City! 5.“Uptown” really is up: Charlotte residents have referred to the downtown area as “Uptown” for years before it was officially designated, the historic sector of “Uptown Charlotte” in 1974. Not many locals know that “uptown” actually does sit at a higher elevation than the rest of the city. 6. Boasts the world’s largest man-made whitewater river: The U.S National Whitewater Center is located on the outskirts of Charlotte and is home to the world’s largest man-made whitewater river. The river’s powerful pumps can unleash enough water to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool in eight seconds! The center is a great place to play, relax, and learn. Check it out.
