There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Carowinds, contemplate the long history of Old Salem Museums & Gardens, admire all the interesting features of BB&T Ballpark, and examine the collection at NASCAR Hall of Fame.

To see photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Charlotte visit planner .

In July, daytime highs in Charlotte are 90°F, while nighttime lows are 70°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.

Asheville nestles between two major mountain ranges in the scenic western section of North Carolina.
Kick off your visit on the 12th (Fri): admire the natural beauty at The North Carolina Arboretum and then let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour. Here are some ideas for day two: get in on the family fun at Gatlinburg SkyLift Park, sample the fine beverages at Sugarlands Distilling Company, then brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine, and finally savor the flavors at Food & Drink.
