Pack your racecar jacket and your lab coat, no need to decide which one to wear when you can visit the Nascar Hall Of Fame and Discovery Place.
Visiting Charlotte means discovering the gems and highlights of the city, and the NASCAR Hall of Fame is a stop that should be added to your list of places to visit. Stopping by “the hall”, located in Uptown Charlotte, isn’t exclusive to fans of the sport and car enthusiasts. Visiting the museum will not accelerate your knowledge of NASCAR and so many great exhibits including the one dedicated to American’s favorite race car. The latest Pixar film Cars 3 is inspired by Nascar and it is only fitting for the Hall to have an exhibit featuring a life-size Lightning McQueen. There are plenty of upcoming events to including Nascar Fan Appreciation Day and the Class of 2018 Induction Ceremony.

For the foodie, whether healthy or decadent, take your pick; go with decadent and get the #BTF (Potato/Baked/Torn/Fried/House Made Catsup/Aioli). The end of the weekend is reserved for the lovers of libations, because Sunday Funday equals a Boozy Brunch.
