Where the green flag drops on vacation.
The Cabarrus County Visitor Information Center is the perfect pit stop for travelers, and a one-stop resource for visitors seeking area information and a little southern hospitality! In addition to takeaways like brochures on area hotels, restaurants, attractions, shopping and more, guests will also leave armed with inspiration for how to spend their time in Cabarrus County. Travel Counselors are on site six days a week to provide insight on must-see hotspots, offer special coupons and deals, make hotel or dinner reservations and answer any questions the visitor may have.
As an added convenience, visitors can also purchase a variety of souvenirs including postcards, t-shirts, local books as well as tickets to local attractions like Kannapolis Intimidators baseball games, the NASCAR Hall of Fame and SEA LIFE Aquarium.
When the Cabarrus County Visitor Center was relocated to Exit 49 in 2011, the vision for the new space was to not only be a place for visitors to find information, but for the center to be an attraction in itself. Today, rotating exhibits from attractions like the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame and seasonal events such as driver autograph sessions and race viewing parties have brought that vision to life.
