I've taken my kiddos (ages 9,11,13) twice and our most recent trip was as much fun as the first time! This is a great place to spend a day and for the price of a typical movie ticket you get a great zoo/petting zoo/aquarium experience including touching stingrays! The outdoor animal area is great for letting the kids stretch their legs and run around. The highlight of the aquarium was the stingray exhibit, and they even have penguins!

This museum is spellbinding: excellent guides lead visitors through discreet exhibits featuring powerful photography of the myriad struggles-and horrors-of the civil rights era: the Greensboro 4, brave students who staged a sit-in at a Woolworths in downtown Greensboro, are presented as the 19-year-old heroes they were. The actual lunch counter is preserved and is part of the tour. I spent summers in the south as a child: I was a bystander to this history.
