Greensboro Science Center

The Natural Science Center of Greensboro takes attendees through worlds once inhabited by dinosaurs with 36-foot (10 meters) tall T-Rex models, as well as places to learn about the natural earth like the Gem and Mineral Gallery. There are also aquatic labs where 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 an experience that 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 chronicling the history of the Civil Rights Movement.

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. Exhibitions here are both of the permanent kind as well as those that are held for only a limited time.

Wet 'n Wild Emerald Pointe

The largest water park in the Carolinas, Emerald Pointe Water Park is the perfect spot to cool off during the hot summer months. Bring the whole family here and take advantage of the 36 fun and thrilling rides located here. This park is so large, the rides and pools here contain a combined 3 million gallons of water. And if you get tired out from all of your fun on the water slides, find a lounge chair with a shaded area to sit back and relax away from the hot sunshine.

O. Henry Statues

William Sydney Porter, better known as O. Henry, is Greensboro's best known and most celebrated writer. His hometown has honored him with this impressive three-piece statue. Located on a prominent downtown corner, the bronze statue features a sculpture of the author, a large book of his stories and even a depiction of his small dog. There is no twist ending here, just a great place to snap a picture in front of one of Greensboro's favorite sons.

World's Largest Chest of Drawers

High Point touts itself as the "Home Furnishings Capital of the World" and this chest of drawers was built to honor that title. Standing 38 feet (11.58 meters) tall, it's quite an impressive sight. Built in 1920, the chest of drawers even features a couple of dangling socks to pay tribute to the town's hosiery industry. As if that wasn't enough, High Point actually has two giant chests of drawers. The other is built onto the side of a building in the Furnitureland South complex and stands about 80 feet (24 meters) tall.
