Greensboro is conveniently located right on I-20 between Atlanta and Augusta, Georgia. Although there are interstate type motels at the exits, the really nice places to stay are located about 15 miles from the interstate near Reynolds Plantation.

   One of the best features of this location is its proximity to wonderful areas of Georgia. About an hour and a half to the south is the  small city of Macon, complete with gorgeous antebellum homes, Mercer University, and a very nice shopping district downtown. There are numerous great restaurants in Macon-- Downtown Grill, Jim Shaws, and Midtown Grill. 

  About 35  miles  north of Greensboro is one of the most beautiful small towns in the South--Washington, Georgia. Washington (also known as Washington-Wilkes) has beautiful old homes, three great museums: Callaway Plantation, Washington-Historical Museum, and the state park department Robert Toombs House. All three are worth the drive.   The town also offers wonderful antique and other interesting shops. Its library has original Tiffany windows and the chest that carried the Confederate gold.  The Fitzpatrick Hotel has just completed a million dollar + renovation and is amazing. The desk clerk will give a great tour if not busy. Washington's local drug store, Fievets, has a real soda fountain in it, and there are other fine places to eat as well.

 If you journey 35 minutes to the West, you reach the town of Madison, the best small town in America. Home to Antebellum and Victorian homes, with a home tour, scheduled for spring, fall and in December. Alongside the historic homes there are emporiums upon emporiums of fine antiques. More over, Madison has just opened its Aquatic Center, which alongside the Bruce Weiner Micro Car Museum, hosts a different side of Madison, to one acquainted with just historic markers.

Of course, Augusta, the golf capital of the south, is about 1hour 40 minutes straight east on Interstate-20.

 Just about 12 miles from Greensboro is the little town of Crawfordville. It was used as the film location for the movie "Sweet Home Alabama" and is very much like looking back in history.

For the out of state visitor, get off the interstate and explore the back roads and delightful little towns of Georgia.
