MOUTH-WATERING

BURGERS

Nothing is more American than a burger, and Greensboro offers the ultimate variety. From award-winning to the hole in the wall, these burgers are for everyone. Take a bite and see why Greensboro is known for burgers.

HOPS BURGER BAR 2419 Spring Garden St. 27403 • 336-235-2178 2138 Lawndale Dr. 27408 • 336-663-0537 Mon-Sun: L D • $$ O Hops Burger Bar topped TripAdvisor's list of best burger spots in the nation in 2015 and they continue serving burgers and craft beer that are worthy of a visit. Serving premium Angus burgers on buttery brioche buns, this popular eatery pairs each patty with a side of crispy fries salted to perfection. Try a weekly special burger alongside favorites like the Spicy Goat (goat cheese,applewood smoked bacon, pepper jelly and lettuce) and the diablo (pepper jack cheese, lettuce, sauted onions, & jalapenos on a sriracha bun).

Burger Warfare

EMMA KEY'S FLAT TOP GRILL 2206 Walker Ave. 27403 •336-285-9429 $O Mon-Sat: L D • Emma Key’s offers old fashioned burgers, hot dogs and sandwiches grilled on a classic flat top, complete with toppings of your choice. 100% beef burgers are topped with the freshest trimmings and ingredients. The menu includes delicious sandwiches, regular and sweet potato fries, salads, and handdipped ice cream shakes. Be sure to try the fresh-from-the-grill breakfast. Indoor and outdoor seating are available in the restored 1950s barbershop.

PORTERHOUSE BURGER CO. 4608 W. Market. St. 27407 • 336-617-7145 Mon-Sun: L D • O B 30+ $$ Local, family-owned restaurant and food truck with cooked-toorder burgers, sandwiches, salads and delicious desserts. Their build-your-own burgers offer non-traditional items like peanut butter, pineapple and fried egg.

BEEF BURGER 1040 W. Gate City Blvd. 27403 • 336-272-7505 Mon-Sat: L D • Retro-style burgers are what Beef Burger is all about. You’ll see it before you enter, with a 60-foot neon sign that welcomes you on Gate City Boulevard. It's a former Biff-Burger, and they still use the same "Roto-Red" Roto Broiler to make broiled burgers. Other menu items include shakes, fries, and BBQ sandwiches. This year will mark the 60th anniversary of this staple that is considered the oldest burger joint in Greensboro. Be sure to bring cash as this is a cash-only establishment.

Big Burger Spot

BIG BURGER SPOT

2812 Battleground Ave. 27408 • 336-288-9275 510 Nicholas Rd. 27409 • 336-541-8861 Mon-Sat: L D • $O Take a bite of a brioche bun burger at Big Burger Spot, home to the sizes “Almost Big”, “Big” and “Colossal Burger.” They have 13 signature burgers plus a build-your-own option (Steve Harvey made a burger here - ask for it on your visit). Don’t forget to try their signature fries and dipping sauces. Our recommendation is Backyard BBQ - American Cheese, BBQ Sauce, Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Crispy Onion with Fries. Their spacious patios are dog and family friendly.

BURGER WARFARE

1209 Battleground Ave. 27408 • 336-500-0654 Mon-Sat: L D • $O Join the revolution at this military-industrial theme craft burger bar. From the dishes to the atmosphere, it is one-of-a-kind. The menu features flat-top burgers, and house-made custards fused to make over-the-top shakes, available with or without booze. The staples offer fun names that get you engrossed in the experience: Try the Peacekeeper (Swiss cheese, pesto mayo, lettuce, tomato, and button mushrooms) or Old Glory (Warfare sauce, pickles, iceberg lettuce, red onions, tomatoes, and American cheese). Spiked milkshakes include Sgt. Shortcake (strawberry shake topped with angel food cake) and Hellcat (cinnamon swirl shake topped with a cinnamon roll).

HISTORY The Historic Magnolia House

AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY Known as the birthplace of the sit-in movement, Greensboro’s place in African American — and U.S. — history is wellknown. But, African American history in Greensboro goes back to the Revolutionary War and continues to shape the Gate City today. The New Garden Woods, now known as the Guilford College Woods, were a known meeting place on the Underground Railroad where Levi and Vestal Coffin assisted runaways going to Indiana from 1819 to 1826. Within these woods remains a champion tulip poplar tree, over 300 years old, known as the Underground Railroad Tree. Today, you can navigate the trail as a simulation of how fugitives seeking freedom navigated the same woods. The trail leads to the tree standing as a silent witness to Underground Railroad activities on the land that served as a crossroad to freedom. CHARLOTTE HAWKINS BROWN MUSEUM AT HISTORIC PALMER MEMORIAL INSTITUTE The Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum interprets the life and work of Dr. Charlotte Hawkins Brown, a prominent educator and advocate for social justice, and her school, Palmer Memorial Institute.

The property was recognized as a highly recommended place to stay in six editions of The Green Book. The Magnolia House hosted many famous guests over the years including Ray Charles, Jackie Robinson, Ike and Tina Turner, Louis Armstrong, James Brown, and James Baldwin.

FEBRUARY ONE MONUMENT A monument dedicated to the four NC A&T freshman who launched the lunch counter sit-in on Feb. 1, 1960 and all those who helped to support the movement.

TRAVEL TIPS

PLAN YOUR

TRIP

Greensboro is welcoming and lively year-round, and every season offers its own allures.

WINTER

International Civil Rights Center & Museum

The air may be cold, but winter is a season to create warm memories. Reflect on the important events of the past. Celebrate Black History Month by taking a tour of the International Civil Rights Center & Museum and learn how four courageous African-American freshmen from North Carolina A&T State University ignited the sit-in movement across the country in 1960. Afterward, visit the February One Monument on NC A&T campus to honor the bravery of the Greensboro Four. Come November, the winter holiday season offers a bounty of festive activities. Downtown Greensboro presents Downtown in December that features Holiday Balloons, decorated Christmas Trees and so much more. The Greensboro Science Center hosts Winter Wonderlights, an immersive walk-through light display.

SPRING

Greensoboro Arboretum

Spring is one of the best times to be in the center of it all. Temperatures begin to rise and flowers bloom into bouquets of natural beauty, decorating the beautiful parks and gardens of Greensboro. Take in the colorful views at the Greensboro Arboretum to warm up for all the spring activities in the city. Take some time to unwind by hopping aboard the Brew Peddlers’ trolley to see what’s brewing downtown. Uncover stories from the Revolutionary War to modern times at the Greensboro History Museum. Have your own scavenger hunt and look for murals around the city as the weather warms up. Play at the Greensboro Children's Museum with the Neptune XXL Climber.

SUMMER

Lake Brandt

by Tracy Anderson @tracyandersonphoto

Summer sizzles with entertainment in Greensboro. Cool off at Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe featuring over 30 rides including the newest ride "Bombs Away" or crack open a cold one at the annual Summertime Brews Festival. Discover and learn with the whole family at the Greensboro Science Center, a zoo, aquarium, and science museum all in one place! Elevate your adventure at the Science Center, literally, and take to the trees with SKYWILD, a one-of-a-kind treetop adventure park designed to imitate animal movements. Nothing says “summer” like ice cream and hot dogs. Be sure to stop by for a scoop or two of homemade ice cream and an oldfashioned hot dog at Yum Yum Better Ice Cream and Hot Dogs, a family business operating in Greensboro since 1906. Celebrate the Fourth of July at the Annual Fun Fourth in Downtown Greensboro.

FALL

Greensboro Science Center

As the leaves change colors and the air turns crisp, there is no better time to “fall” in love with Greensboro than in autumn. Pardon the pun. Kick off the season at the North Carolina Folk Festival, a free, threeday celebration of art, culture, and heritage. Take the whole family on a seasonal adventure at J. Razz and Tazz Farm for hayrides, corn mazes, and, of course, finding the perfect pumpkin in their pumpkin patch. Looking for some Halloween fun? Brave the Woods of Terror and replace any nightmares with sweet dreams by grabbing a slice of pumpkin cheesecake at Cheesecakes by Alex afterward. Wander along the elevated wooden boardwalk through 7 acres of natural wetlands at the Bog Garden and enjoy the stunning fall colors of the changing leaves. With 3 city lakes including Lake Brandt, kayak, fish and hike around as the season changes.
