Fly In and Drive out of Charlotte Douglas International

The largest city in North Carolina and among the fastest-paced in the American South, Charlotte occupies an interesting focal point in history and modernity. With a wide variety of tourist destinations ranging from NASCAR stock racing arenas, major urban and national parks, several museums, and pubs and clubs, Charlotte's draw to tourists worldwide is clear. The major reason people tend to visit Charlotte, however, has to do with the fact that it is one of the centers of banking in the United States, second only to New York City in terms of the size of companies and volume of business done. Both business and pleasure travelers alike would do well to book a Charlotte airport car rental, as public transportation in the city is virtually zero, and taxis can cost an arm and a leg if you need to use them to get anywhere. Scroll down for more Charlotte airport information, to learn about CLT car rental opportunities or to further plan your Charlotte vacation.

The Charlotte/Douglas International Airport, a joint military and civilian public airport, was the 11th busiest airport in the United States in 2009, due in no small part to being the central hub for all US Airways flights. Serving nearly one hundred cities worldwide from twenty airlines, Charlotte/Douglas is still a smaller airport, leading to a sense of congestion and busyness for travelers making connections or moving through. Once you get out of the various concourses, however, the airport opens up, and it is easy to find out where to book a Charlotte airport car rental or where to find various informational brochures for your trip to Charlotte. Reliever airports for the Charlotte/Douglas International Airport include the Concord Regional Airport and the Rock Hill Municipal Airport, and business or private travelers can land at the Wilgrove Air Park just nine miles east of central Charlotte. The Charlotte/Douglas International Airport offers all your favorite CLT airport car rentals, whether you prefer National, Alamo, Budget or any of the others. Tourism in Charlotte mostly centers around the city's many festivals throughout the year, and it seems like there's always something to celebrate whether it be music, sports, gardening, golf, food, books, cars, antiques, or anything else the city has to offer. No matter what they're celebrating, whether it's the Taste of Charlotte in June or the Southern Spring Home and Garden Show in March, the people in Charlotte combine the excited timbre of the North with the casual, laid-back attitude of the South. Kids will definitely want to visit the Carowinds theme park, home to roller coasters, carousels and other carnival rides that the whole family, but especially the young and the young at heart, will enjoy. Be sure to get a CLT car rental and visit Carowinds on Halloween, as the entire park is transformed every October 31st to a haunted, ghoulish spectacle unmatched anywhere in the States.
