Weekend Road Trip to Charlotte, NC

If anyone asks us where to go or what to do for a long weekend getaway, we recommend going to North Carolina! More specifically head to Charlotte! As the largest city in the state and the second largest in all of the southeastern United States, Charlotte is one of the best road trip destinations or refuge for a long weekend getaway. Check out some of Lewis Nissan’s top things to do there below!

Need for Speed

Ever wanted to see what you could do on a track? Head to the Victory Lane Indoor Karting Center, where you can go full throttle on a 1/3-mile European-style indoor road course with Sodi Honda specialty karts at an average speed of 45 mph.

Want to go even faster? Get the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience and drive a real NASCAR with a professional racing driver at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. It’s an experience you’ll never forget.

Parks and Outdoors

Charlotte is home to numerous parks and places to enjoy nature, making it a great place to wind down for the weekend. You’ll especially enjoy the Reedy Creek Nature Center and Preserve, the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, and the three-tier lawn called The Green, where a range of events are hosted throughout the year, including outdoor Shakespeare performances and wine festivals.

Museums & Art

Home of USAirways Flight 1549, the historical Piedmond Airlines DC-3, and the “Miracle on the Hudson,” the Carolinas Aviation Museum has a collection of aircraft, helicopters, equipment, and other gadgets that you won’t want to miss, even if you’re not an aviation enthusiast.
