Greensboro, North Carolina, is a city located in Guilford County in the U.S. state of North Carolina. Greensboro enjoys gently rolling hills and is midway between the mountains of North Carolina and its beaches to the east.

A view of the city from its highest building—the Jefferson-Pilot tower—reveals that the town is populated with large numbers of green trees, giving perhaps another dimension to its name.

Greensboro, North Carolina
The gentle rolling hills of Greensboro, North Carolina are nestled between the coast and the Blue Ridge range of the Appalachians, making for a pleasant climate and beautiful scenery all year long. Just the sight of the mountains and the sound of the running streams, tempt even the inveterate city dweller to take a deep breath and relax.

Whenever you plan to visit, the weather will be just about perfect. The average July high temperatures are in the upper 80’s. Fall is usually the driest time of year, and with the long growing season and ample precipitation in spring and summer, the leaves on the trees are colorful and tend to linger on the branches. When they do turn and fall, the sight is breathtaking. The temperatures average in the high 50’s in the fall and drop into the high 30’s in the winter. If Greensboro gets any snow at all, it adds just the right touch to Natures’ handiwork, making the city a virtual postcard.

Enjoying the weather is just one of the natural benefits of Greensboro. It is also a city rich in history and the preservation of memories of past events. One of these is the Reenactment of the Revolutionary War Battle of Guilford Courthouse. “Explore History Days Events” held throughout the year, are highlighted by the reenactment of the battle. The activities take place at the Special Events Field in Military Park. The 220 acre site includes wayside exhibits and a visitor center with displays, films, and brochures.

A most enjoyable event is any performance by the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra. The season runs from September to May.

For a little family adventure, a sure hit is the Natural Science Center of Greensboro. It is a hands-on 30 acre complex with a museum, zoo and planetarium offering fun for the whole family. Roam through the Dinosaur Gallery and view the 36 foot model of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Learn about gems and minerals, see the lemurs and enjoy touch labs. Visit snakes and amphibians in the Jaycee Herpetarium, pet animals in the zoo's petting area, explore Kids Alley and interact with exciting traveling exhibits.

For another family activity, watch one of the teams in action. Baseball has the Greensboro Bats, Ice Hockey the Generals, and soccer the Carolina Dynamos. Another popular attraction is the Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe Waterpark. It’s the largest water park in the Carolina, featuring more than 34 rides and attractions. Why not take the plunge on the popular all enclosed Twin Twisters water slide or the Dare Devil Drop speed slide.


If you are traveling with children, you may want to take a side trip south about 35 miles to Asheboro and the North Carolina Zoological Park, said to be the world's largest natural-habitat zoo. The North America habitat includes everything from polar bears to alligators to elk and bison. In the R.J. Reynolds Aviary, you can walk through an indoor tropical forest where birds fly free. The African section has lions, chimps and zebras, and the Australian Walkabout, with kangaroos and kookaburras, opened for a three-year stay in May, 2004.

About 15 miles south of Asheboro is Seagrove, also known as Jugtown, where internationally known pottery is made. Blessed with large deposits of surface clay, the area has supported communities of potters since well before English settlements in the mid-18th century. As the demand for utilitarian pottery and whiskey jugs lessened, the area's potters developed new traditions of decorative art pottery.

The city of High Point (15 miles southwest of Greensboro) is a major furniture center that hosts an international home furnishings market each April and October. The city's Furniture Discovery Center Museum is the nation's only museum devoted to showing how furniture is made.

“So much to see and do and so little time to do it”, the saying goes. Be sure to set aside ample time to vacation.
