I am planning to move to charlotte and am in the hospitality industry, trying to time move in with the right season so as jobs will be plentiful. How is the tourism there or is it mostly yearround and locals. I am coming from east coast FL and it it very seasonal here.

You would need to move to the coast or to the mountains if your work depends on tourism.

Or perhaps check with Visit Charlotte (fka Charlotte Convention and Visitors Bureau). Perhaps they have some resources to help you with your planning.

Here's their Web site:

Good luck!

Cool posting

The hospitality industry in Charlotte is booming. With the growth this city is going through there are new restaurants, hotels, apartment buildings, office complexes, entertainment venues opening constantly!! The Charlotte area is year-round as we have very mild winters and Charlotte is the #2 banking capital so there are always business conferences for many industries that come here because of the central location, mild climate, accommodations, and reasonable costs associated to do so. Finding a job in the hospitality and tourism industry should be no problem. Good luck!!

Perhaps. But the most amusing thing is the exuberant answers one poster gave - in 2008. Some folks were caught like deer in headlights, evidently, when Charlotte's puffed-up designation as the #2 banking center in the galaxy caused us a boatload of layoffs and negative publicity.
