Visit Charlotte: NASCAR Hall of Fame

Disclosure:  Two of our tickets were sponsored.

Upon researching family-friendly things to do in North Carolina, the NASCAR Hall of Fame was frequently mentioned.  I admit, I am a casual fan having watched NASCAR on TV, and not nearly knowledgable as super fans, but after visiting the NASCAR Hall of Fame, I am very eager to go to my very first NASCAR Race!

Upon entering, you register a Hard Card which helps to personalize your experience, and you can swipe the card at various kiosks throughout the NASCAR Hall of Fame to capture all the fun on a digital scrapbook.  

After registering your card, we headed to the High Octane Theater to learn more about the history of NASCAR.  

After watching the short film, we then walked the Glory Road, where you can get up close and personal with the cars that took part in some of the biggest moments in NASCAR history.  It was so neat to be so close to the cars!

There are numerous interactive displays throughout Glory Road, and what I thought was really cool was how the road is actually inclined to represent what the race car drivers experience in real life.  
There is a 33-degree incline exhibit where visitors can experience just how steep it is, and it is indeed very steep!  I couldn't walk down without holding onto the railing!

We then visited the Hall of Honor.  This impressive room features the NASCAR Hall of Fame honorees, with videos that you can watch and listen to that highlights the honorees and their memorable races.  

There were so many super fun and informative exhibits throughout the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

You could view trophies and suits, learn about aerodynamics, step in a broadcaster's shoes, and watch some of the most exciting race finishes.  

The Pit Crew Challenge was a lot of fun.  You can test your skill in this timed challenge where you jack up a car, change a tire, and fill up on gas. 
The Simulator Racing Experiences are a must-try.  After practicing at the Qualifying station, you can head to the Simulator Racers to get a feel for what the NASCAR drivers experience.  

NASCAR Hall of Fame partnered with Kulture City to ensure that everyone of all needs and abilities can enjoy the attraction.  As a mom of a special needs child, I really appreciated this.  

While at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, the kids even crafted their own race cars!

It doesn't matter if you're a NASCAR super fan, casual fan, or completely new to NASCAR - the NASCAR Hall of Fame is a welcoming attraction in Charlotte that is fun for all ages!
