Relax at Double Oaks or play somewhere nearby.
Greensboro and the surrounding community has many things to offer visitors. Let us help you plan an outing, and then come home to Double Oaks.
FOR OUTDOORS ENTHUSIASTS
Greensboro and nearby areas offer many opportunities for outdoor adventure. Enjoy a picnic or take a walk through any of Greensboro’s beautiful public gardens.

Our favorite place to shop is in downtown Greensboro, only a mile from Double Oaks, where you could pick up your next read at Scuppernong Books, browse through vintage clothes at Design Archives, find a unique gift at Hudson’s Hill, or pop into any of the other shops and eateries on Elm Street. The Friendly Center and the Four Seasons Mall are home to national stores and brands.
