All about

Greensboro, NC

Getting to Know Greensboro

Welcome to Greensboro, a booming city situated between North Carolina's Blue Ridge and Smoky mountains to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Home to the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) headquarters, UNC Greensboro and a redeveloping downtown area, this city is a remarkable and affordable place to put down new roots.

 

Greensboro Neighborhoods

Thanks in part to the presence of UNC Greensboro, Charles Aycock has become an eclectic neighborhood perfect for those who prefer an arts-driven community near downtown. Several neighborhoods provide a more suburban-style feel with tree-lined streets and neighborhood parks, the best of which include Fisher Park and Lindley Park.
