I like the idea of seeing the museum inside the airport. I have never been to NC and would love to get a glimps of it.
You could rent a car & drive west on Wilkinson Blvd to Belmont. They have a nice botanical garden-Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. They have a nice little downtown with restaurants for lunch.

Always pick up an arrival upstairs at the departure area...it's not congested as downstairs... From a pilot's wife.

I'd go to the NASCAR Museum, downtown. If you like NASCAR you will love it, if you hate NASCAR you will feel superior so you can't lose.

Then HOPE there is an afternoon baseball game, I ass/u/me they have them, the stadium is very close. If you want to chow down, there are some great (not necessarily unique) restaurants downtown. I would leave that area with about 2 1/2 hours to spare, still gives you 6 hours to explore.

Good Luck

I believe it meant "superior to NASCAR fans".

I second the suggestion for seeing the NASCAR museum. I am not a NASCAR fan, yet that museum is fascinating. You will develop a healthy respect for NASCAR.

There are quite a few good restaurants and cute little parks and plazas around Uptown. It's a nice place to wander.
