By foot, car and driver or horse and carriage? Actually, by bicycle! The city has invested in greenways throughout town that offer an opportunity to explore the area on a designated path off the street. The Little Sugar Creek Greenway, just off Elizabeth Street, offers an excellent opportunity to explore the Dilworth and Myers Park areas. This path ends at Freedom Park, which is a popular weekend area for locals. The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte also has its own bike valet, offering access to men’s and women’s bikes (at no charge) and related gear for hotel guests opting to use pedal power. IllustratI ons by G rady M cFerrIn I have two teenage boys who want to spend two of our four days in Charlotte doing anything and everything NASCAR. One of our sons has a driver’s license, the other is only 15. What activities can you suggest? The NASCAR Hall of Fame needs to be your first stop. It showcases the history of the sport while offering the opportunity to experience a NASCAR simulator and even a position as member of the pit crew. Charlotte Motor Speedway hosts driving schools ranging from Mario Andretti to Richard Petty and offering the ability to simply ride along all the way up to competing against 15 other racers. Unfortunately, participants must be 18 with a valid license. Charlotte Motor Speedway is home to year-round motor sports events and activities, so the fun is not just limited to NASCAR races.
