I always love being a tourist of the city I live in. People become so used to their everyday routine, that they forget what their surroundings have to offer, especially when you just want to go 20 minutes down the road for a day of adventure!
Wanting to go somewhere I'd never been before, and not having time for travel, Vlad and I spent a Friday afternoon exploring the Natural Science Center of Greensboro, NC! I didn't realize how much was there! Between the exhibits and the indoor habitats, as well as the small enclosures outside, there's a lot to see. The Natural Science Center is only one of two zoos in the country, the other being in Indianapolis, that has Javan Gibbons monkeys. Soon, in spring 2013, it will also be the home of the Carolina Sciquarium! So I'm already excited to go back next spring and see the addition! Its definitely a place to put on your checklist for Touring Greensboro!
