Will be driving thru in August ( Grandpa, Grandma, Granddaughter & Grandson. What should we see in 2 days?


City: Charlotte

State: North Carolina

Country: United States


If anyone is into racing, Charlotte has the new Nascar museum. Taking some laps around the Charlotte Motor Speedway is also a fun 1 hour adventure. There is the US Whitewater Park just barley outside of town. Look around downtown if you are from a smaller community. Check out any of the museums downtown.
There are always concerts at the Von Braun Center in the summer....check into this for dates and groups performing. Huntsville is known as the "Rocket City" and thus: There is also the Davidson Nasa Space Center with the Saturn V Rocket on display; they also have a huge IMAX theater. There is an outdoor modern shopping center called Bridgestreet, where you can find many name brand goods (anything from make-up, clothes, shoes to jewlery), good restaurants here too.
There are also many trails that can be hiked in just a few hours: Monte Sano is a wonderful area.
