Welcome to Greensboro and the Piedmont Triad Region of North Carolina. By the way, the grass really is greener here because we enjoy a robust quality of life, perfectly balanced climate, and ample opportunities to balance business with pleasure. Situated in the middle of the North Carolina urban crescent and equal distance from the mountains and the coast, Greensboro residents enjoy a variety of recreational opportunities. Living at the crossroads of I-85 and I-40 also affords residents easy access to the region, state, and entire east coast.
Culture, nightlife, and opportunities for fine dining are also numerous in the Gate City. Try one of the First Fridays events for a gallery and culture crawl. Explore Downtown art galleries and studios, retail shops, and alternative arts venues and see the creative side of Greensboro. We take food seriously here as well with original, upscale eateries like the Undercurrent, Liberty Oak, and Printworks Bistro as well as casual, easy restaurants like the Mellow Mushroom or Stamey’s Barbecue (this is the south afterall).
Greensboro, NC, is a place where the grass really is greener. With over 80 miles of trails in both natural and urban settings, 170 parks and gardens over 3,500 acres, and 27 golf clubs and courses, Greensboro offers ample opportunities to soak in the natural world.
The bottom line is that Greensboro is eclectic and fun. Having colleges around every corner keeps us young too. Come for a visit. You may stay for a lifetime.
