I'm hoping you might be able to help me plan my husbands 40th birthday surprise trip to Charlotte. He is a HUGE Nascar fan. Unfortunately, I do not share his enthusiasm, so I don't have much info or expertise to go on.
We will be flying into Charlotte from Phoenix on a Thursday mid-morning and staying through Monday late afternoon. I will be renting a car. Sometime during this trip, I am planning on taking him to the Nascar Hall of Fame (giving him a personalized brick and the tickets/itinerary on his actual b-day). I'm sure he would also love to visit Lowe's Speedway and the Hendrick (spelling?) facilities.
I am need of hotel and restaurant advice, as well as whether or not it would even be possible to do all of this in such a short visit. I love the look of the Dunhill Hotel, but am unsure of the location.
Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated! All suggestions are welcome! I really want to make this a memorable trip.
