For a relaxing getaway and a brief trip back in time, residents or tourists can book a room at the Historic Biltmore Greensboro Hotel. Built in the late 19th century as a corporate headquarters, the building later served as a home base for the U.S. Postal Service before being transformed in a hotel in 1923. The hotel was considered the epitome of luxury in those days, as it was the first building in the city to offer indoor plumbing, electricity and an unmanned elevator. Guests have access to the upscale shops, restaurants and theaters of downtown Greensboro, which was designated a Historical Landmark in the 1960s.
The enormous City Lake Park in High Point is an 8-mile drive from Jefferson Gardens. The park features a pair of playgrounds, both of which are fully handicap-accessible, a carousel and miniature train, and an 18-hole mini-golf course. Adults will enjoy the covered picnic pavilions, the fully equipped gym and a number of historical buildings, including a meeting house once used by Quakers for their unique services. The park also features a swimming pool, with two new water slides, and a 340-acre lake where residents can fish and boat. Canoe and pedal boat rentals are available for a relatively low fee.
