Discover the Piedmont-Triad Region
This 11-county region, which includes the Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point metropolitan areas, also encompasses the state’s Yadkin Valley Wine Region. The downtown districts in this region are community centers that not only provide the majority of the jobs for local citizens, but also offer a rich collection of locally owned shopping, dining, and cultural amenities that celebrate the artistry of each county, entrepreneurship, and, of course, Lexington style barbecue. The Piedmont-Triad region is recognized as a transportation hub for the southeastern United States, a nucleus of higher education and progressive healthcare for North Carolina, and a rich cultural center that includes the U.S. Civil Rights Trail, the North Carolina Zoo, theaters, museums, dance and live music venues, and even a Shakespeare Festival. Follow the Yadkin Valley Wine Trail, kayak the lakes and rivers of central North Carolina, explore the arts scene and public art dotted throughout the region, and enjoy the economic vibrancy of the Piedmont-Triad region.
