A state of many contrasts, North Carolina is home to beaches, forests and mountains with conservative towns and liberal-leaning cities tucked away amidst them. With epic outdoor activities and communities to explore and, of course, old-time Southern charm; the Tar Heel State is a fascinating place to visit. While its shoreline is home to lots of barrier islands, the Piedmont region is made up of rolling hills and fertile farms. In the west are the beautiful Blue Ridge Moutains which boast the highest peaks east of the Mississippi. Here’s a look at the best places to visit in North Carolina.

“It’s just escapism and a good two plus hours of that kind of connection, really just human connection.”
Keith Urban is excited to get back to performing live for his fans after the pandemic canceled parts of his tour back in 2020.
In a recent interview with Fox News Digital, Urban spoke about how excited he is for his new Las Vegas residency – which starts its 16 date-run March 3, 2023 – detailing what makes this one different from the last, and what he hopes audiences will feel when they are watching the show. The Grammy award-winning star also promised a bigger and better number than his residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace because he has a bigger stage that he is “going to take advantage of.”
A new Raising Cane’s location is opening on the Las Vegas Strip.
The local favorite for fast food chicken fingers opens at the Showcase Mall on Tuesday, with bold decor in lieu of a drive-thru.
A two-story LED screen on its facade gives way to the casual restaurant decked in neon lights, life-size artwork, a deconstructed disco ball, a glass elevator, and a private gnome casino hidden under the stairs.
The two-story restaurant is the 14th in the Las Vegas Valley.
METALLICA played its first concert of 2022 Friday night (February 25) at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show, which was reportedly attended by 60,000 fans, featured support from GRETA VAN FLEET and ICE NINE KILLS.
Fan-filmed video of the performance can be seen below.
The Las Vegas show took place more than two months after METALLICA‘s two 40th-anniversary concerts at Chase Center in San Francisco, California which featured different setlists. They were part of METALLICA‘s “San Francisco Takeover”, a four-day citywide celebration of the band’s 40th anniversary that also included a film festival, photo exhibit and curated lineup of smaller venue shows featuring other acts.
MIAMI (AP) — Peacocks could be on the outs in some South Florida neighborhoods after the Miami-Dade commission agreed to loosen a law protecting the birds.
While the 20-year-old law still protects peacocks from harm, commissioners agreed Tuesday to allow cities to opt out if they present appropriate plans to humanely remove the divisive birds from areas where they’re not wanted, the Miami Herald reported.
“Mating season is when we get the most complaints. They get very aggressive,” said sponsor Raquel Regalado, whose district includes neighborhoods in Coral Gables and Miami where peacocks roam freely. “They lay their eggs, they build their nests, they peck the cars.”
Neighbors often clash over the peacocks. Some love the colorful birds while others complain of droppings, noise and the damage they cause by roosting on cars or houses.
“In my district, we learn to live with these peacocks,” said Commissioner Danielle Cohen Higgins, representing Palmetto Bay, which has designated itself a bird sanctuary. “They almost become a part of the community. I know our residents lose it when anyone harms any of these peacocks.”
Adele has postponed her Las Vegas residency due to COVID-19-related production delays, the singer announced a day before her first show was set to kick off.
“I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready,” Adele said in a tearful video posted to Twitter Thursday. “We’ve tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you, but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID – half my crew are down with COVID, they still are – and it’s been impossible to finish the show.”
She added: “I can’t give you what I have right now.”
The “Easy on Me” singer added she was “gutted” by the last-minute cancellation. Her Las Vegas residency, titled “Weekends with Adele” and announced in November, was set to kick off Friday at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace and run through April.
All dates will be rescheduled
More info coming soon

Wait time at the Colosseum has been extended.
Fans in line, online, to purchase tickets Tuesday to the “Weekends With Adele” residency at Caesars Palace have been informed they need to wait until Wednesday to make the purchases. A widespread web crash is the reason.
Ticketmaster has messaged ticket-buyers waiting in the online queue: “Due to an Amazon Web Services (AWS) outage impacting companies globally, all Adele Verified Fan Presales originally scheduled for today have been moved to tomorrow. Impacted fans will receive an email with updated info on their new presale time.”
Ticketmaster has directed fans to return to the site at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesday, depending on when they were originally scheduled to check in.
Ticketmaster had planned to open sales to Adele’s high-demand series on Tuesday morning. But as the first set of fans were ready to enter the ticket buying link at 10 a.m., the ticket seller reported the Amazon web problems. Originally, the pause was to last four hours. Now it is a day.
