Spoiler alert! The above photo is not Greensboro, but neighboring Winston-Salem. These sunny days of late summer/early fall are perfect for day trips. The mountains are ripe for apple picking adventures. Wake Forest University is offering some fun football Saturdays. Old Salem Museum and Gardens is offering their fall gardening workshops and ready to show you what fall was like in a Moravian village. Pilot Mountain and Hanging Rock State Park are begging to be traversed, as is Grandfather Mountain. Mount Airy is waiting with some Mayberry nostalgia. All of these places have one thing in common. When leaving Greensboro, you need to head west and pass through Winston Salem. Greensboro is a great place to call home, but once in a while, we love to visit our sister city (of sorts) the next county over.... especially on bright, sunny days!
Happy Saturday, dear readers! And, a special thanks to Kim for her GDP comment yesterday about Bain Street having been named for former Greensboro Mayor Carson Bain. Read the 2010 obituary of this prominent Greensboro citizen, here. Readers and commenters like YOU (and Kim) make this blogging effort all worthwhile!
