Significant, sure. But sophisticated? Personally I'd give that honor to Charleston when it comes to the Carolinas as a whole.

This thread is hilarious due to the OP's poor diction. Ask an obscure question and get an obscure response.

The most sophisticated city in the Carolina's is Newberry, SC. It's where they make Grey Poupon.

I don't know. I think Lexus cheapened their brand when they started making more affordable models. Same with Mercedes. I wouldn't be caught in even an SL.

We support our troops by having the best USO in the U.S. at the airport with a volunteer force of 400 members. We have the Billy Graham foundation that is on the spot to give support to victims of disasters around the world. Everyone I know accepts people from all walks of life that are good people regardless of race, religion, sexual preferences, etc. We have southern hospitality. The combination of these factors (which on their own may not unique) make us a sophisticated city. And I believe that any one of the aforementioned could be our most sophisticated thing.
You mean there are 400 volunteers in Charlotte that work at the USO in the airport? Does the YMCA uptown offer a cheap overnight sleep? like 15/night etc. I must say I haven't seen too many homeless people uptown, at least nothing compared to other cities.

Well, since you make $29,000 a year, I don't think there's much chance of you being caught dead or alive in one. Unless you steal it.

It is NOT sophisticated!

1. It does not have great museums, such as (a) the Metropolitan Museum of Art, (b) the MoMA, (c) the Guggenheim, (d) the Whitney, (e) the Frick, (f) the Neue Gallery, (g) the Museum of Natural History, (h) the JP Morgan Library, (i) the Hispanic Society, a museum which is virtually unknown but has paintings by El Greco, Goya, and Velasquez, etc.

2. It does not have great operas, symphonies, ballets, etc.

3. It does not have a great university.

4. It does not have a great library, Etc., etc.
What would you say is Charlotte's best museum? Meaning one that someone would visit more than once and spend more than an hour... For instance in NY I think the natural history museum holds the title. Philly it's the art museum, though I personally think art is boring. Baltimore has a great one at the harbor.

I think you're asking the wrong person.

Would you rather me compare it with Chattanooga or Richmond? lol
