How lucky are we that our hometown of Greensboro is surrounded by Atlanta, Athens, and Augusta? Those large Georgia cities offer tons of fun things to do, not to mention easy ways to travel in and out of the state via Hartsfield Jackson International Airport (and of course, exciting UGA football games.) But what about interesting things to do right here in Greensboro?
Just because ours is a small town doesn’t mean that it’s boring. Below we’ve put together a short list of some of our favorite activities in and around town. Try a few of these, and you’ll soon learn there are advantages to living in the warm and friendly town of Greensboro, Georgia:
Find unique treasures at Greensboro Antique Mall
Since it’s the largest antique store in the Lake Oconee region, a stop at the Greensboro Antique Mall is a must for any antiquer. Established in 1860, the dwelling itself is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You’ll find 50 dealers in 11,000 square feet of space chock full of vintage furniture, crystal, china, linens, glassware, pottery, coins, books, southern primitives, jewelry, garden decor, and home accessories.
Indulge in Buttermilk Pie at Yesterday Cafe
Named one of the “100 Best Places to Eat” by Georgia Tourism is the renowned Yesterday Cafe. Conveniently located in historic downtown Greensboro, it’s where you can taste their famous Buttermilk Pie. Hey, if it’s good enough for Carrie Underwood’s famed wedding (she ordered 300 of them!) it can certainly be a tasty way to conclude your own enjoyable meal at this famous restaurant.
Check out Classic Cars at Memory Lane
A must-see for any automobile enthusiast, Memory Lane is a museum that boasts the largest private collection of classic American cars, motorcycles and memorabilia in the Southeast. From antique to newer models, you’ll see muscle, drag, and race cars, plus motorcycles, and unique vehicles from all eras. What’s even better is that all proceeds from the nominal door charge go to charity. They also often have super-fun car meets, sock hops, and free concert events.
Enjoy a beverage at Oconee Brewing Company
Beautifully housed in a renovated cotton mill warehouse, Oconee Brewing Company specializes in excellent craft brews. Known as “OBC” for short, it houses a retail production facility and a tasting room for public tours. The cost to take a tour, which includes a pint glass and 36 ounces of complimentary tastings is $15. They also have fantastic events, such as live concerts, dancing, and “Brushes & Brews” in their stunning facility. “Like” them on Facebook to stay in the know.
Catch an OPAs show
Atlanta isn’t the only place you can catch a great show. The Oconee Performing Arts Society (OPAS) is a cultural arts organization that brings high-quality music, theater, and dance performances to various beautiful venues throughout the Lake Oconee region. No matter your artistic or musical tastes, you’re bound to enjoy one of their productions.
