The latest reports say Charlotte is the state’s leading tourist attraction. Tourist destination cities have discovered that high quality of life, transportation networks and connections to various neighborhoods have to be in place to support a robust tourist economy. So, how do we stack up?  The CEO of the Charlotte Regional Visitors Bureau and others tell us about that, about raising our profile and about why people are coming here to visit.
