Charlotte is a beautiful place. I enjoyed my time at the theme park with water rides called Carowinds. Iím a car lover as well so I decided to go to the NASCAR Hall of fame!

Iím into science and I loved my trip to the Science museum. The Freedom Park is an amazing place as well, especially for hiking sports and lakeside events!
