Next up on the itinerary: test your team's savvy at Escape Kings, examine the collection at NASCAR Hall of Fame, explore the engaging exhibits at ImaginOn: The Joe & Joan Martin Center, and stroll around Freedom Park.

Asheville

Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.
On the 1st (Sun), explore the wealth of natural beauty at The North Carolina Arboretum, then view the masterpieces at Lexington Glassworks, and then indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour. On the 2nd (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and then get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Asheville vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Getting from Charlotte to Asheville by car takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: fly; or do a combination of flight and car.
