Regional Road Trip: Cabarrus County

We asked community members on our Regional Road Trip to share what they would recommend someone see or do if they had only one day to spend in the community. Use these sites to launch your own road trip, exploring all the fantastic places, events and scenery our region’s communities have to offer! 

City of Concord – Start your engines! Whether you prefer NASCAR or a shopping spree, drop by the Charlotte Motor Speedway for a race with the family and then head to Concord Mills for some retail therapy.  


Town of HarrisburgGrab the whole gang and head to Harrisburg Park for playground fun, sports games or entertainment in the amphitheater. If you’re looking to try what the locals call “blue-collar gourmet,” head over to Bubba’s Bunkhouse for a pint and a delicious burger.  


City of Kannapolis Downtown Kannapolis is the place to be! The historic Gem and Swanee Theaters, Kannapolis Cannon Ballers and NC Music Hall of Fame are all within walking distance of each other and make a great itinerary for a day in the city. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, grab lunch at Chop House 101 and one (or more) of 24 ice cream flavors at My Sister’s Place.
