"Me on the Map"

Michelle over at A little bit of this & that had a great idea on how we can all link up together and let others know about the towns/cities that we live in. You should definitely check her page out and get in on this fun.

Where is Carolina Belle blogging from?

Mooresville, North Carolina.

Mooresville is about 30 minutes outside of Charlotte. If you really want to do anything and have fun, you're better off taking the drive to Charlotte or Winston-Salem.

We're known as "Race City USA" because we're the home of NASCAR. All the famous drivers live here and have their race shops here. Two famous drivers I'm sure you all are familiar with are Dale Earnhardt Sr and Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Lake Norman is where everyone goes during the summer. It's also home to the Lake Norman Yacht Club, which hosts the South Atlantic Yahct Racing Association.

We also have Lancasters BBQ & Wings, which has been voted the best bbq and wings in Western/Central North Carolina for the past 5 years. As soon as you walk in, you definitely know you're in NASCAR country. All the walls and ceilings are dedicated to NASCAR. However, what makes this place neat and the talk of the town is the fact that they have a school bus inside of the restaurant that they have made into a dining area.

Even if you aren't a fan of NASCAR, it's still a good place to visit and we're also outside of Charlotte, which makes it even better.
