Things to do near the Hilton Charlotte University Place

My son and I are going to a wrestling convention at the Hilton Charlotte University Place from July 31-August 2. Most of the activities are in the hotel but no doubt we will need to get out. We are both non-drivers and he loves football and I would not mind seeing a Nascar event or some rock band in a place other than the Fillmore. Any suggestions would be welcomed along with some restaurants recommendations in the area.

Unless you want to call a cab, about your only alternative without a car is to take the bus into town. There you can visit the NASCAR Hall of Fame, some uptown museums, and eat. I would not recommend riding that bus line late at night.

There is a neat place within walkable distance from Hilton, called Wine Vault. Often with live music. I could not find the events calendar, but here is their website:



Your hotel s staff should know about it....

Also Boardwalk Billy's place:


I know the one in Galleria/Crownpoint - fun place, inexpensive beer specials, sometimes live music; must be the same @ University City...

Taxi to Epicenter - check with your hotel if it is on:



Also check with your hotel if they still do a complimentary local shuttle transportation within a five-mile radius...

You are relatively close to the Speedway and PNC Amphitheatre. Unfortunately, there is nothing going on the dates you are there. There are plenty of decent restaurants, shops to visit near your hotel. Boardwalk Billy's is a raw bar, ribs, etc...pretty good. You are very close to UNC Charlotte, so perhaps they have something going on at their campus. Concord Mills is probably 6-8 miles north and downtown Charlotte is 12-15 miles south from your hotel, but there really isn't public transportation.
