Heading to Charlotte? The Queen City boasts a rich arts scene, exciting nightlife and plenty of upscale shopping. Catch the thrills at the Lowes Motor Speedway or stop and smell the roses at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. Tuck in your napkin at any one of the many dining options from steak to sushi and everything in between. When day is done, there will be plenty of choice hotels to snuggle up for a snooze. Stay close to downtown or select accommodations in Gastonia that are conveniently located away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to get there in minutes.
