Greensboro Airport Guide

The major attraction of the city is the International Civil Rights Centre which collates and displays artefacts from the last half century. The city’s museum takes the story back further and has a lot of interesting information on the Civil War which raged in the area. The Natural Science Centre is a great place for kids to visit, half museum and half zoo, there are plenty of hands on activities including a petting area for young animals. If you prefer outdoor activities, several lakes in the area offer rowing and canoeing.

Greensboro Info

The city of Greensboro was named after Nathaniel Greene who was instrumental in bringing about the end of the American Revolution. The founders wanted a new capital for the county and so set about building a courthouse followed by homes surrounding it. The success of the cotton trade led to textile manufacture in the city and today it’s home to some of America’s most popular clothing brands. The city and surrounding region also produces and processes much of America’s tobacco crop.

Greensboro Trivia:
  • Until 1895 the city was called Greensborough
  • It was built as a town surrounding a courthouse in the hope that it would act as the county seat
  • The city was completely reorganised geographically in 2003
  • It’s known for its textile industry and is the home of North Face, Lee and Wrangler
