The Queen City, well, she came in ninth. Here’s what they had to say: “Charlotte is a major U.S. financial center, with Bank of America and the East Coast operations of Wells Fargo both headquartered here. In 2011, the city was named the second largest financial center by assets, behind New York City. Nicknamed ‘The Queen City’ Charlotte is home to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, more than 40 public golf courses and plenty of other big-city attractions. On average, homes sell for around $162,000.”

And, in case Charlotte folks still find themselves pining over Atlanta, they’ll have a long way to go. The Gate City was number one on the list.
