Gibsonville, a small city on the eastern side of Alamance County (in fact, it's split between Alamance and Guilford counties) is a short 20-minute drive from Greensboro, and it's adjacent to the buzzing little town of Elon. Visit picturesque downtown Gibsonville (here's a walking tour) for a glimpse into its history as a rough-and-ready gold mining town that transformed into a booming industrial center in the early 1920s. Downtown is now home to cafes, bakeries, antique and gift shops, even a brewery.
Here are some of our favorite ways to experience Gibsonville:
After strolling through downtown, grab a drink at Toasty Kettlyst, part of Gibsonville's growing brewery scene
Have a fancy date night at Burke Manor Inn, a historic B&B and event venue with award-winning French cuisine, cooking classes, and wine tastings
Take the kids--and adults--to see the Gibsonville Garden Railroad, the largest outdoor and most complex public garden railroad in North Carolina
Picnic in the grass in front of Depot Stage and enjoy the music at Groovin' on the Green and other festivals and events throughout the year
Support your local farmers and artisans by stocking up on produce, baked goods, and crafts at the Market at Gibsonville, on the Green every Saturday and Tuesday through the summer
