Goldsboro - Tourism.png

Nestled in the heart of eastern North Carolina, between Raleigh and the coast, we’re a destination rich in culture and heritage. We could go on about our scenic state park, historic sites, legendary BBQ joints, and brag about the airshows we witness as F-15E Strike Eagles soar across our skies, but what Goldsboro’s appeal really boils down to is its originality.

We invite you to stroll the scenic streetscapes of our charming downtown. While taking in its quaint elegance, indulge in one of ourfine eateries or make a literal “pit stop” for the best, authentic, pitcooked BBQ in the state. Take a tour of some of the most significant historic sites in North Carolina and mingle with folks whose hospitality is built into their very core. When planning a visit to Goldsboro, you’re choosing a trip reflective of the simpler, more beautiful things not found in other destinations.

With over 250 days of sunshine, you can also enjoy one of the area’s signature events no matter what time of year! Whether you’re a foodie, outdoor enthusiast, or a little bit of both, there are so many things to see, do, and taste in Goldsboro. Come and experience a destination like no other.
