Just outside of the downtown area, the Four Seasons Town Centre features hotels, a shopping mall and the Joseph S. Koury Convention Center.

Active adults can also visit the gardens and park spaces at Bicentennial Garden, Blandwood Mansion and Gardens, the Bog Garden and Greensboro Center City Park.

For educational and historic offerings, Greensboro features a variety of recreations.
