If one of your favorite artists is on tour this summer, but not stopping by Myrtle Beach, check out some bigger concert sites across the Carolinas.
A getaway to catch the Zac Brown Band on June 21 in Raleigh or the Dave Matthews Band July 24 in Charlotte, for instance, might lead to a great way to build a weekend or vacation of memories, and check out some other sights in those places, such as the N.C. Museum of Art or NASCAR Hall of Fame, respectively.
