Rebel Wanderer: Charlotte’s Got A Lot

If you’ve never been to Charlotte before you don’t even know what you’re missing. I had the pleasure of learning more about this incredible destination from our friends at Visit Charlotte. I had no idea there was so much to do there. When they say “Charlotte’s Got A Lot” they aren’t kidding. This week we’re highlighting three unique venues we think you need to know about!

NASCAR Hall of Fame

The NASCAR Hall of Fame provides you with a venue where you can experience it all. Have a reception encircled by NASCAR memorabilia in the Great Hall, eat dinner beside a NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductee’s car, or host a private event in the Legends Room. The NASCAR Hall of Fame is able to accommodate groups of various sizes, ranging from 10 – 2,400 people. The Hall of Fame also includes a 278-seat, state-of-the-art facility with a 64’ wide curved projection screen that is perfect for sales meetings or award presentations. They even have a 32,000 sq-ft patio adjacent to the main entrance if you’re looking for an outdoor venue. It’s the perfect space if you’re looking for a unique venue that your attendees wont be able to experience anywhere else.


U.S. National Whitewater Center

If you’re looking for an amazing excursion in North Carolina, there’s no better place than the U.S. National Whitewater Center. Over 500 acres of man-made activity goodness. They have live music on a regular basis, whitewater activities, canopy tours, ziplines, and hiking trails. If you’re interested in team development, the USNWC Team Development program is an innovative step beyond traditional experiential education. With access to expansive woodlands as well as indoor conference facilities, the USNWC promotes the core concepts of outdoor leadership development that engage groups and individuals alike. Our Team Development programs, both challenging and educational, can be tailored to meet the specific goals of any group regarding leadership development, team building, communication and more.


The Fillmore Charlotte

The Fillmore Charlotte is housed in a historic textile mill, and is themed in the tradition of the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco. It features the iconic music venue’s trademark decor, including red oak hardwood floors, vintage posters of legendary live music performances magnificent chandeliers throughout, state-of-the-art lighting and sound, as well as, stadium style tiers that create great sight lines from anywhere in the venue, a VIP area and more.

Nestled in the Fourth Ward area of Uptown Charlotte at the NC Music Factory, the location offers convenience in accommodations for both business and pleasure.
