The area has plenty of fun attractions to bring out the excitement everyone remembers from their past spring breaks. No matter what your interests are, there is something for every member of your family! Here are some of our favorite places in the city!
Take in Nature
If you love natural settings and want to enjoy time with your family outside, Greensboro has plenty of locations to explore!
The Gateway Gardens spans 11 acres at the entrance to Greensboro. This display includes a playful and interactive garden integrating history, movement, discovery, and community elements.
Greensboro Arboretum features 17 acres of flora local to the Piedmont region. Learn about a variety of plants as you stroll past gorgeous structural features.
Visit the elegant and interactive 7.5 acres of the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden. The Sensory Garden, the bronze sculpture, and massive annual paintings bring visitors back each year.
Last but not least on our list of Greensboro nature attractions is the Bog Garden at Benjamin Park. Cruise the elevated boardwalk through 7 acres of natural wetlands. Stone pathways, the forested hillside, and Serenity Falls provide a tranquil getaway from everyday life.
All these attractions are free to visit, and any will be an excellent choice for you and your family.
Who says because your kids aren’t in school, learning has to stop? Make education fun with one of Greensboro’s state-of-the-art museums! There are so many fun ones to choose from that your kids won’t even realize they kept their brains on the entire week!
The Miriam P. Brenner Children’s Museum (formerly the Greensboro Children’s Museum) has many exhibits and events to enjoy! Take your kids through over 20 hands-on exhibits and see what you both learn! There are plenty of settings here to inspire imagination. First, visit the Outdoor Play Plaza, which consists of two 30-foot-tall Neptune XXL Climbers connected by a 25-foot suspended net tunnel. Next, enjoy the many learning stations that span topics such as hydrology, medicine, construction, and the theatre. Then, check out various kinds of transportation! Pretend to drive a police car, a Petty Enterprises race car, or a Volvo truck. Try your mind-body connection on the obstacle training course. There is much more to explore here, but we want to keep it a secret!
The Greensboro Science Museum is a fantastic choice if your kids are older! There is something here for every member of your family to enjoy. They have an aquarium and a zoo, in addition to their museum! Look for tigers, penguins, and sharks! Walk along with prehistoric animals as you learn where we all came from. Now through May, follow a sensory and interactive journey to learn more about our favorite domesticated animals- cats and dogs!
