Charlotte Community Guide

If you’re looking for a destination with activities and attractions to keep everyone happy, Charlotte is the place. Carowinds theme park provides families with an exciting day of water sliding and riding rollercoasters, while Discovery Place offers more fun, but with education thrown in while the kids aren’t looking. Anyone with a need for speed can head to the Lowe’s Motor Speedway to watch NASCAR racing, while history buffs will enjoy the city’s historical museums. Quiet days can also be had picnicking at a park or window shopping along the streets of downtown.
