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 Intimidator baseball games, the NASCAR Hall of Fame and SEA LIFE Aquarium. Tickets are now available for purchase in our Visitor Center.
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, a rotating exhibit from the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame, a NASCAR x-Box racing simulator and seasonal events like driver autograph sessions and race viewing parties have brought that vision to life.
We encourage you to stop by! Located at 10099 Weddington Road – Suite 102 in Concord, NC 28027, the Visitor Center is open six days a week! Guests can also reach Visitor Services staff by calling 800-848-3740 or sending a message to Hey@VisitCabarrus.com

Cabarrus County Destination Guide
With the visitor's feedback still ringing in our ears, the Cabarrus CVB sets out each year to create a publication that will aid and engage our visitors even more than the year before. The Cabarrus County Destination Guide showcases our area with 71-pages of detailed area maps, restaurant listings, attraction information and engaging imagery. This free versatile handbook is available in hard copy and a digital version accessible on mobile devices and tablets.
For us, hearing the phrase, "That book is the best!" is just as sweet as "Drivers, start your engines!"

Over 94,550 hard copies were distributed last year, and the digital version was accessed more than 21,000 times.
