Remembering the Greats

When you stay with us at StayLakeNorman, there are numerous places to get your fill of history and remember some of racing’s most celebrated figures. From Dale Earnhart to Darrell Waltrip, you can discover some of history’s most significant faces and vehicles of racing. Memory Lane Motorsports and Historical Automotive Museum are one of many museums that showcase the timeline of racing in NASCAR.  The NC Auto Racing Walk of Fame, the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame, and Dale Earnhardt Inc. are all fantastic places to see the vehicles and drivers of racing history in person. JR Motorsports, Kasey Kahne Racing, Kyle Busch, MTJ Motorsports, NASCAR Technical Institute, and so many more are also incredible ways to catch a glimpse inside the life of racing.

Cruising Lake Norman

The Catawba Queen is a popular vintage vessel that carries guests gracefully over the water’s surface while whining and dining the evening away. Lady of the Lake is also a popular vessel that sets out on regularly scheduled dinner cruises to take visitors through beautiful areas of the lake for an afternoon of delightful dining and breathtaking views.
