Never been to NC: Raleigh or Charlotte?

Hi,

I'm going to be in NC for a concert in August. I've never been to NC before and since I'll only be there for a day or two I want to go to the location which is best for local attractions etc.

What's a better place to go:

Raleigh or Charlotte?

Thanks for your help.

It's for an Alan Jackson concert.

Venues:

Raleigh: Time Warner Cable Pavillion

Charlotte: Verizon Wireless Amphitheater

Just after the best place for sight-seeing, local attractions, maybe some shopping that type of thing.

Also if anyone knows which one of those venues are better.

Thanks in advance.

The venues are about the same. There is probably a little more to do in close proximity to the one in Charlotte because it is fairly near the racetrack and UNC-Charlotte. That said, I would recommend Raleigh. It is about half the size of Charlotte and the attractions a little more concentrated. Restaurants and bars also. Either place, I am sure you will be welcome!

The Charlotte area has a lot to offer....besides great shopping, wonderful food, a fun downtown, and a lively nightlife, there is also the Great Wolf Lodge, the White Water Center, Tiger World, Lowes Motor Speedway. I vote for Charlotte the Queen City mate
