Groovy Greensboro's got all the bases covered

Where is the grass never greener somewhere else? In Greensboro, of course. This lively North Carolina city has heaps of character. Its universities and colleges give it a young, dynamic vibe, and the downtown area is full of dining and nightlife options if you're looking to cut loose. As for attractions, a Greensboro vacation rental will dish up just about anything you're looking for. From water parks to museums, and ballet to basketball, Greensboro's got all the bases covered. And if you just want to sit back and smell the flowers, you can do that too at 1 of the city's parks.

Things to do

Water, water everywhere with a Greensboro vacation rental

If you're taking little travelers with you to your Greensboro vacation rental, it won't be long before you find yourself taking the plunge at Wet 'n Wild Emerald Pointe water park. Once you've dried off, you can get to grips with some serious history at the International Civil Rights Museum, or take the kids to the Greensboro Science Museum, which even has its own zoo. As for culture, you won't be disappointed on that score either. Greensboro has its own ballet company and symphony orchestra, and there's modern art courtesy of the Weatherspoon Art Museum.

Activities

Enough activities to make other cities green with envy

As the third largest city in North Carolina, you'll never run out of stuff to do in Greensboro. The city's got more than its fair share of sporting events, thanks to the Greensboro Coliseum Complex. Whether you're into basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, or even roller derby, you'll find something to push your sporting buttons, and that's before you even get onto the Wyndham Golf Championship, part of the PGA tour. And if your favored sport involves credit cards and shopping bags, you'll want to head over to the Four Seasons Town Centre, or the Friendly Center.

Weather

A drop of rain keeps the Greensboro grass green

Winters in this part of the world are short but surprisingly cold. They get snow most years, generally between December and February. As for the summers, they're nice and warm, but it can also get pretty humid (something has to keep the grass green in Greensboro, after all). Thunderstorms can come through with reasonable regularity, so make sure you come prepared for an occasional soaking and you'll do just fine with your Greensboro vacation rental. If you're looking to stay dry (or as dry as it gets), then fall is your best bet.

Natural features

Whichever way you turn, you'll hit gold in Greensboro

With a Greensboro vacation rental, you're pretty much bang in the middle of North Carolina. It's in a fairly urban area known as the Piedmont Triad, which is made up of the 3 cities, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point. Still, green spaces are never far from Greensboro. Uwharrie National Forest is just an hour away, featuring fishing and boating on Badin Lake, and backcountry hiking in the Birkhead Mountains Wilderness Area. There was once a mini gold rush in the area, and if you're feeling lucky, you can still pan for gold in the streams.
