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.

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.

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.

Greensboro History Museum

Whether a student, a researcher or just someone wanting to know a little something more about the long and rich history of Greensboro and Guilford Counties, the Greensboro History Museum is the place to be. Notable figures the museum covers include, among others, former Governor John Motley Morehead, O. Henry and David Caldwell. There are exhibits that are both the permanent kind as well as those that are here for only a limited time.

Red Oak Brewery

Located east of Greensboro in Whitsett, Red Oak Brewery brews Bavarian lagers right in the United States. The beers here are brewed according to the 1516 Law of Purity, meaning that only Bavarian hops, malted barley and yeast are used with no additives. Try their Hummin' Bird Golden Lager or their Red Oak Amber Lager right at the source here during a brewery tour, which are offered every Friday. The brewery offers seasonal brews as well.

Center City Park

Center City Park sits on 1.9 acres (0.77 hectares) right in the center of downtown Greensboro. The Greensboro Cultural Center, the city's history museum and the YWCA are also nearby which makes great use of the park. What's more is that one of the main contributions the park serves is as a meeting spot for residents to assemble for events like free outdoor movie screenings or live musical performances.
