Top rated rentals — Greensboro
Destination guide

Greensboro is steeped in history

This 18th-century city in Georgia is steeped in history and even just a wander through its historic downtown will bring you face-to-face with pretty Southern antebellum houses and buildings. If you want to escape the city for the day, consider taking a drive out to Lake Oconee and nab yourself a spot along the 400 miles of shoreline, or pack up your clubs for a day on one of the 10 championship-style golf courses. Alternatively, head out into the center of town to hit the many shops or dive into the museums and art galleries.


Hike, bike and kayak near Greensboro

You won't be short on outdoor activities when you score a Greensboro vacation rental. The North Carolina countryside around the city lends itself to walking and mountain biking, with its varied trails and pathways. Alternatively, you could take to kayaks to spend sunny days paddling down the waterways, or harness up to climb the state's rocky cliff faces. If golfing is your bag, you can tee off at several nearby 18-hole courses, while anglers can find river banks to cast off from. Bringing kids? They'll thank you for taking them to one of the zipline and aerial adventure parks near Greensboro.


For better rates, try Greensboro in spring or fall

If you're like most travelers, you'll be heading to Greensboro during the summer season, when the weather is at its hottest and the attractions keep their doors open into the evenings, to match the longer days. That said, it's also the most expensive time to visit, so if you'd like to save a few bucks, consider scoring a Greensboro vacation rental in one of the shoulder seasons. Between March and May, or September and October, the weather can be slightly cooler and, arguably, more pleasant, while the prices drop off with the lack of travelers. Even winter has its merits.

Wildlife lovers take note of Greensboro

Just a short walk through the park reveals everything from shy white-tailed deer and eastern cottontail rabbits bounding along the forest floor to wild turkeys. Talking of birds, there's more avifauna here than you can shake your binoculars at, including warblers and wood thrushes.
