2024-25 Destination Guide



Kodiak Cocktail Bar & Music Lounge


Home to everything from a water park resort and epic racetracks to an aquarium and charming downtown, Concord is a cool contrast of high-energy thrills and places to chill.

The city was founded in 1796 and its name stems from the compromise that was reached after a disagreement over where the county seat would be located. Centuries later, the harmony remains and offerings here have grown to include a unique blend of big adventure and laid-back local happenings.

At Exit 49, several adrenaline-inducing activities are located within minutes of one another. Find races and driving experiences at Charlotte Motor Speedway, iFLY Indoor Skydiving, all-electric karting at K1 Speed, and rushing water slides at Great Wolf Lodge. With an 80,000-square foot indoor water park that stays 84-degrees year-round and tons of dry land fun, this resort is ideal for family getaways in any season. At Concord Mills, attractions including SEA LIFE Aquarium, The Speedpark, and more await alongside designer deals at the state’s largest outlet and value retail shopping center.

The horsepower-fueled fun continues at NASCAR race shops such as RFK Racing, Hendrick Motorsports, and Trackhouse Racing. These ex clusive attractions set Cabarrus County apart as a prime destination for motorsports fans.
