We are heading to Ikea tomorrow for the day and would like to take advantage of visiting other things in the same area. So if you had a few hours to spare what would you make sure to do? We will have a 16yr old and a 4 yr old with us.
Thanks in advance.

Yeah, would suggest Concord Mills as well. Couple years ago apparently Concord Mills and the Blue Ridge Parkway would flip flop positions on being the most visited spots in NC. Now I would bet Ikea will be in the running for this honor

Concord Mills (about 5 miles North on 85 past IKEA). There is a NASCAR Speedpark there, with putt putt and bumper boats in addition to the go-carts. My guess is that you won't make it anywhere else, I hear IKEA is so huge you can barely get through it in a day. Have fun!!!

I wonder if its bigger than the Ikea's Ive been to in both California and Maryland. I had no problem getting through them in 1-2 hours. Of course, I dont stop and look at everything. There is a ton of stuff there but I could not see spending more than 2 hours there.

I love Ikea's cafeteria, it got great and affordable food.:-)
There is a play/day care area for the little ones.

It's only 2 floors actually. I have a longer time getting through the IKEA in Schaumburg, IL. You should have no problems making it around in a few hours tops. If you are just browsing or have never seen it then it may take longer.

^^^^^^^^yeah, the one in Schaumburg is bigger. We don't have those nifty escalators that carry your carts from floor to floor!

A new city Zoo was built kinda of right next door to Ikea and it even has a McDonalds in it.
It's a new concept created by Walmart called Walmart.
