About Greensboro

In central North Carolina’s heartland, Greensboro is a great all-round family or couples’ weekend destination. The former textile town is well-connected by road, rail and air and has an across-the-board range of attractions - from amusement parks and interactive museums to art galleries and arboretums. Our selection of the best places to stay in Greensboro ensures you are close to the heart of the action.

What Not To Miss

  • For all-round family fun there’s the Greensboro Science Center with hands-on science exhibits, planetarium and zoo.
  • There are more hands-on exhibits at the Greensboro Children's Museum. Everyone will shriek and scream at Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe, an adventure theme park with over 35 rides including Daredevil Drop, one of the nation's tallest water slides.
  • Greensboro played an important role in the 20th century’s civil rights movement, making headlines when segregated blacks protested with the famous ‘sit-in’ at Woolworth’s lunch counter in 1960. The Woolworth’s store is now, very appropriately, the International Civil Rights Center & Museum.
  • The town’s rich multi-cultural past is reflected in its galleries and museums, including the Reed African American Heritage Museum and the clutch of galleries at the Greensboro Cultural Center at Festival Park, including the African-American Atelier and the Guilford Native American Art Gallery. Weatherspoon Art Museum houses an impressive collection of 20th-century art, including works by Matisse, Picasso, Warhol and de Kooning.
  • For something more tranquil, explore the gardens of Blandwood Mansion, an impressive Tuscan Italianate house, or the 17-acre Greensboro Arboretum with fountains, gazebo and bridges.
  • Browse the shops of downtown Greensboro, noted for their fine collections of furniture, art and antiques including the famous Replacements store and warehouse which boasts the largest inventory of obsolete and current china, crystal and flatware patterns in the world.

Our selection of the best places to stay in Greensboro provide visitors with a great base for exploring the town, before relaxing in the evenings.
