    Such a peaceful and inspiring place! We stayed about 4 hours to read everything, watch the videos and browse in the bookstore. A must stop location if you’re visiting Charlotte.

    Get there early.. Very busy with school group the day we visited. My husband loved the simulator experience and would have spent the day in there except the school group got in line. Lots of track memorabilia, interesting bits about lots of drivers. Cool how each racetrack surface differs from each other..Fun for racing fans..

    Amazing. Surpassed expectations. We brought a 4 yo and they enjoyed almost everything there was at the museum. We watched the science show and they were mesmerized! The only hard part was that it was crowded due to all the school trips there so my little one had to be patient is all.

    We've been wanting to ride the no.1 rollercoaster (Fury 325) in the world since it opened in 2015. What an incredible ride it is, however I wish that the setting and terrain would be more interesting, MF at Cedar Point does better. Intimidator and Copperhead Strike are the only 2 other coasters that are top shelf IMHO. I must say that the park is in great shape and very clean. It's a very family oriented destination, no shady or rowdy characters either which is a major plus. Wait times were reasonable on a weekday in August and a season pass is reasonably priced if going more than 1 day. If you are a coaster aficionado Fury 325 is worth the trip & visit, but nearby Dollywood and Kings Dominion are superior parks overall.

    This is in the heart of neighborhoods and it is a very sweet park! We don’t have kids, so we just walked around the water and enjoyed looking at nearby houses! We live in San Diego, and we don’t have anything like this!

    The museum is great… & free! There’s a lot to see and it gives a great history of Hendricks along the way. The store was well stocked with plenty of Team gear along with some vintage looks. The staff was extremely nice and knowledgeable.

    Nightlight is great we were bar hopping and clubbing. We went to Tilt is was low key not to crowded. Prohibition was a great vibe with great music and the dj was great.

    I attended a work function in the picnic area. It was very nice. The food was fine. I then walked around the park some. It’s a nice park with great sight lines. Very enjoyable evening.

    Very nice museum to spend a morning. The building is very new and attractive. Although it is called Mint Museum, it’s really an art museum.

    I went to see the Green Bay Packers play the Carolina Panthers (Packers won 33-30). A friend in Green Bay connected me with someone in N.C. who had Club Section (Silver) seats. This was my first time getting Club Section seats, so all of the so-called "amenities" (e.g., cleaner bathrooms, nicer food areas, cup holders by your seat, separate entrance to your seats, complete player rosters for both teams,.......) were new to me. It was fun. One small negative of the Club Section was that there were even more exclusive clubs within the Club Section to which I was not allowed, such as the Club Terrace; I found this a bit odd. The Bank of America stadium is fairly nice. It was about 70% full, a dramatic change from Lambeau Field, which is almost always completely full. Lambeau is more dramatic, but this stadium is pretty good.

    The vibe, the people, the drinks- all amazing. I’m so sad we missed the Christmas Market, but the lights and fire made up for it!
