Hi,
A few years ago my husband and I happened to be in downtown Greensboro (or near to downtown) just after the first of the year. We saw the most enchanting sight...many, many lighted hanging balls down several neighborhoods. It was so beautiful we would like to return this Sunday with the kids.

We will be coming from Raleigh & wondering what area we need to go to see these enchanting balls...or if they are even hanging them anymore. A search on google hasn't helped me much.

We would like to get dinner before or after if you have any suggestions for a place near.

Thank you for any help.

The lights are in Sunset Hills. Here's a nice video explaining it.

Thank you Sue. 1618 Seafood Grille looks wonderful, but, may be a bit pricey for us that night since we will be footing the bill for 9 of us--all teens & adults. Maybe in the $12-20pp range or less

Gotcha. Then look at this one:

Lindley Park Filling Station

There are a couple of other places right there at that intersection.

Sticks and Stones Clay Oven Pizza
EMMA KEYS | Burger | Sweet Potato Fries | Snow Cones | Milk Shakes | Flat Top Grille | Number One Burgers In Greensboro
Fishbones Online Home

Have fun!

Well, somebody has worse Google skills than me!
