Fondly known as "Race City USA" because of the many prominent NASCAR racing teams that call the area home, Mooresville is an exciting city with plenty of things to see and do. Racing fans shouldn't miss the chance to tour racing facilities and pick up some branded merchandise, and adrenaline junkies can also zip around the track at the Pit Indoor Kart Racing go-kart facility. If you're visiting with kids, you can also go apple picking at Carrigan Farms, join a horse-drawn wagon safari at the Lazy 5 Ranch, and perhaps attend a workshop at the Mooresville Arts Gallery. CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.
