Charlotte is the most populous city in the state of North Carolina and the
county seat of Mecklenburg County in the US. Located in the hilly area of
Piedmont, the city derives its name from the wife of King George II. Like
most Americana cities, Charlotte’s Uptown is the place for all history
buffs where they can wow themselves with the city’s sheer number and
variance of museums. Some highlights here are Charlotte Museum of History,
Rosedale Plantation, and the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
Things to do in Charlotte
NASCAR Hall of Fame
NASCAR Hall of Fame is home to everything related to the NASCAR, America’s
premier car racing event. It features a simulated racetrack, some of the
most iconic racing cars of yesteryears (including a 1952 Hudson Hornet, a
1967 Chevelle, and 2008 Chevy Impala SS) and the heroes of the sport. A
visit to the High-Octane Theatre is also for its 64-foot-wide projection
screen with surround sound that relays audio-visual treats related to the
iconic sports event.
Carolinas Aviation Museum
As is NASCAR’s Hall of Fame to racing cars, so is Carolinas Aviation Museum
to the history, technology, and evolution of air travel and aircraft. The
museum features many vintage and historic aircrafts on display, none more
famous than a copy of the Wright Flyer and the Grumman F-14D Super Tomcat
fighter aircraft. Also, of note here is the First world War’s fighter place
called Douglas A-4A Skyhawk and the Sopwith Camel biplane.
