Greensboro is a North Carolina city, known for its science center as well as a hands-on museum. It also has a rich history whose artifacts and landmarks can be found across the city in different places.

History of Greensboro

I discovered that the town was once contact point of Revolutionary armies of America and the British when the movements pushed for independence in the latter part of the 18th century.  There are several monuments and battlefields to discover in the outer districts of the city, especially when the Civil War came about. 

Places to Visit

I enjoyed seeing the sharks and red pandas at the Greensboro Science Center. The National military park at Guilford courthouse also has several artifacts and exhibits of American Revolution where one can see the interactive exhibits as well as check out the video re-enactments which showcase the struggle for civil rights. 

Among the outdoor places here, Bog Garden is a wetlands area I enjoyed visiting which has a boardwalk that is elevated with birds and flowers. If you are traveling here with children, Wet’n Wild has a water park at Emerald Pointe where there is a wave pool, slides, cabanas and a kids’ pool. 

I also stopped by Elsewhere, it being a living art museum that brings out the artistic side of locals and visitors. Piece de resistance is a new theme here which I explored through the different art collections here. I also visited Art Alliance which is an art school for the community that offers workshops, art camps in summer and pottery classes in Greensboro as well as in communities around. 

Eateries to Stop by 

There are several cafes to stop by here such as Tate Street coffee house which offers unique brews, vegan sandwiches and homemade cakes. College Hill here has several fine dining destinations as well as places where one can hear jazz nights.
