Greensboro Arboretum

The Greensboro Arboretum is more than just a beautiful park complete with wedding gazebo, a fountain, arbor and bridges, though those features in and of themselves make the grounds worth a visit. What makes the arboretum extra special is that it provides a wealth of information for landscape designers or people who simply want some ideas for their garden. The property's 17 acres (6.88 hectares) have been split into 12 plant collections, grouped together based on plant size, species, optimum growing conditions, or blossoming times. The grounds also contain a butterfly garden, exceptional rose garden, rhododendron garden, and walking trails.

Guilford Courthouse National Military Park

The ground where the Battle for Guilford Courthouse was waged, this national military park is a solemn commemoration of the soldiers and militia who valiantly braved the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution. Back during the Revolutionary War, the battle for Guilford Courthouse was fought, with Major General Nathanael Greene and his men trying to defend the land against the British and German allies led by Lord Charles Cornwallis. Eventually, Corwallis and his troops forced Greene to retreat, before Corwallis himself eventually surrendered to George Washington. Complete with a tapestry of exhibits, monuments and dense forests, the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park is truly an indelible chapter marking the pages of America's history.

Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden

The Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden was created by Greensboro Beautiful, Inc. in conjunction with the Greensboro Parks & Recreation Department. Greensboro Beautiful is a nonprofit organization dedicated to maintaining and enhancing Greensboro's natural beauty, and in 1976 created the Bicentennial Garden with that purpose in mind. Sculptures of historical interest are placed throughout the park, and the flowering trees, lush greenery, and flowing stream create an idyllic setting for a romantic or family outing. This public garden is open daily from dawn until dusk, and is available for weddings.

First National Bank Field

First National Bank Field is home to the Greensboro Grasshoppers. The Grasshoppers play in the South Atlantic League and are the Singe-A minor league farm team of Major League Baseball's Florida Marlins. Opened in 2005, the stadium has a capacity 7,499. This is a wonderful sports stadium to watch a baseball game and root on the home team!

Greensboro Science Center

The Natural Science Center of Greensboro takes attendees through worlds once inhabited by dinosaurs with 36-foot tall T-Rex models, as well as places to to learn about the natural earth like the Gem and Mineral Gallery. There are also aquatic labs where the everyone can pet and get to know more about snakes, amphibians and other sea-creatures. A trip to this center and all the attractions within is definitely an experience that any and all members of the family can enjoy.

International Civil Rights Center & Museum

The goal and lasting mission of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum is to educate future generations, and also not let anyone forget Greensboro's as well as the nation's struggle for Civil Rights. Everything that began with the sit-in protest of the Woolworth-lunch counter 1960 by four young North Carolina A&T State College students and every battle in-between is chronicled inside these walls. This is truly an inspiring monument to history.
