Moved away, but my favs were
Hanging out in City Center Park:




Biking Bur-Mil and kayaking Lake Brandt


also biking and running country and battle ground park



(I think they cut down this tree, don't know why)

My Alma Mater


It was also cool hoppin on the part bus and going to Winston for 1 dollar(Left 2010 so it's probably higher now but still cheaper then what I would spend on gas.

Also cool was easy day trips to either Hanging Rock or Pilot Mountain


(all pictures belong to me and were taken by me(some of my post have been deleted so just had to note that)

I bet my sister was there too. Of course, she's older than me!

My first concert (and first date) was the Rolling Stones in 1965 at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh on the NCSU campus. I was in jr high, and my date's father drove us there and picked us up... the only way my parents would let me go! Oh, the good old days!

In the 70's thru 90's I saw Neil Diamond, Diana Ross, Sha Na Na, among others at the Greensboro Coliseum. (bringing it back to the topic)

Hahaha! That's so sweet. Greensboro has always had great concerts. Even more important: The ACC basketball championship! Woohoo. I saw NC State beat UCLA for the national championship. You remember, back in the David Thompson days!

I'm glad that it helped you! I definitely think it's prettier than High Point, more well rounded than Burlington, and friendlier than Winston, but that's just my opinion based on my very limited experience since 2008!
