Cool off this summer with these 8 Greensboro activities
1.Cool off at Lake Brandt. At this lake, you have the option to kayak, canoe, and stand up paddle.
They even offer night paddling for you love birds that want to recreate that dreamy lake scene in the notebook (Before it rains, of course)
2. If Lake Brandt isn’t cool enough, check out the Greensboro Icehouse!
This Ice skating rink has provided fun for Greensborians for 20 years. Skate rental and session is as cheap as $10 on the weekends!
3. Wet & Wild is the largest water park in both the Carolinas. With over 36 rides and attractions. They’ve got rides, slides, waves, pools, and fun for all ages! General admission is $39 dollars, but season passes start at just $50 so you might as well grab a pass and have fun all summer long!
4. The secret is out…Wet Willies is coming to Greensboro! (In case you don’t know what Wet Willies is) Wet Willies is a frozen daiquiri bar. This chain specializes in nearly a dozen flavors of frozen daiquiri’s that are dispensed by bartenders from a row of mixing machines. (Imagine a frozen yogurt bar on steroids.) Yeah, it’s that great.
5. So maybe frozen daiquiris aren’t really your thing, and you prefer a classier “turn up.” Look no further than your local Wine and Design! At Wine and Design, you can sign up for different classes that are taught by local artist. The artist will walk you through each step until to complete your masterpiece. What I like best about this Wine and Design is that they offer a visual calendar on the website so you can sign up for a class based off the painting that you’d like to recreate.
6. If you’re a true wine connoisseur, Wine Styles is the place for you! Wine Styles is located in the Friendly center across from Mimi’s café. Wine Styles offers a large variety of wines, and each week they host a wine tasting event for $5. You can’t beat that! Even better, they often have live music for you to enjoy while you sip away.
7. Strike your way out to a Grasshopper’s game! Baseball games are fun for anyone. It’s the perfect time to crack open a cold one, laugh with friends, and enjoy that beautiful NC weather. Below, I’ve posted a calendar of all the games this summer!
8. A walk in the Park – Greensboro is filled with beautiful parks and gardens! Check out the Center City Park, Arboretum, Bog Gardens, and Tanger Family Bicentennial Gardens
