From Raleigh’s WCTI12:

Two new attractions are available among the many people can visit all over North Carolina during the Christmas holiday season.

A first-time Christmas Village in Charlotte has opened along with a new Battleship North Carolina event. These events join the many already across the state, from Christmas at Biltmore to holiday events in historic New Bern and Bath.

“One-of-a-kind celebrations and settings add to the glow of the holidays in a state known for its natural beauty,” said Wit Tuttell, executive director of Visit North Carolina, in a press release. “The 35-foot Fraser fir at Biltmore, the entire town of McAdenville decked out in lights, flotillas on the coast and inland waters are authentic experiences that reflect a sense of place and local culture.”
