Greensboro, NC

F. W. Woolworth

US Airways Magazine did an amazing 71 page spread on Greensboro in their July issue. Have you seen it? We couldn’t have asked for better publicity.

They begin by proclaiming: “Barbecue, basketball, and business: It’s a conveniently alliterative trio that’s synonymous with Greensboro, the historic hub of North Carolina’s picturesque Piedmont region.

Yet there’s so much more to the city’s identity — museums, galleries, festivals, parks, music, and the dramatic arts. The combination of a pleasant, four-season climate, a deep menu of restaurants, and a gracious Southern style is tough to top.”

The article includes a wealth of information on our region: theater and the arts, sports – including our obsession with the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and the museum to prove it.

Coverage of our museums, ballet and Universities.

And, of course, the International Civil Rights Center and Museum where, 51 years ago, four African-American freshmen from Greensboro’s A&T State University sat down in Woolworth’s Drug Store at the “whites only” lunch counter and dared to order coffee. Within a month, similar protests were taking place in more than 55 cities and 13 states. The original Woolworth store, and those famous barstools, still stands as a tribute to those brave students and what they did to inspire our nation.

The article goes on to showcase our arts and culture festivals, the beauty of our greenways, the many historic landmarks that still stand to reflect our heritage, our community foundations, semi-pro baseball team (go Grasshoppers!), sports complex, theaters for performing arts, the Greensboro Symphony and the Greensboro Opera.

I encourage you to click on the following link to read their articles and learn how much Greensboro has to offer. The magazine was filled with beautiful photographs that would make anyone anxious to visit and those of us who live here proud that we do.

My thanks to US Airways Magazine for featuring our beautiful city.
