From world-class hotels and dining, to informal down-home fun, Greensboro is a refreshing mixture of southern hospitality and urban sophistication. As U.S. Airways magazine points out, “…museums, galleries, festivals, parks, music, and the dramatic arts… a deep menu of restaurants, and a gracious Southern style is hard to top. Greensboro’s urban core has been infused with new life over the past decade, and today it’s a vibrant commercial and residential district with restaurants, pubs, boutiques and condos.”

Tripadvisor notes: “Greensboro lives up to its name in the host of gardens, science centers, and arboretums. The Bog Garden features a living wetland ecosystem. History is also at home here with museums dedicated to the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the Civil Rights movement.”

17DAYS Festival ties all this together with a bow from October 13 through October 29, 2017. And there is so much more to see and do. Make your plans to visit Greensboro to enjoy the Festival and spend some time discovering a great new southern city.
