Activities in/around Greensboro for early-mid 20 year olds

I'm a college student in Greensboro, NC and by boyfriend and I are starting to get sick of spending our Sundays (the only full day we get together) at Friendly center/Wendover shopping areas/etc and need some new, fun activities to do. Winery tours and tastings, Bachata or Salsa lessons (I do know those are offered at the Cultural Arts Center but usually week nights), shows, concerts, fun parks or lakes, anything that gets us out of the house and doing fun stuff! Suggestions and recommendations are be GREATLY appreciated, from the strange to the seemingly obvious, whether you're a resident or someone who has visited the area. We're sick of being bored on beautiful Sunday afternoons!

Thanks!

If you have a car, there's the NC Zoo at Asheboro.........that's almost a full day to cover it all. There are a few items you might be interested in if you click on "Things To Do" in the left hand column. There is "Wet 'n Wild" at the intersection of I 85 and South Holden Road. You could consider the Guilford Courthouse National Park just off North Battleground Avenue. In Winston/Salem, you could explore the old city of Salem, You could explore Bur-Mil Park further north on Battleground Avenue. Hope this gets you started.

There are dozens of wineries within an hour or two drive. Just google "nc wineries" and you'll find them.

More suggestions, in no particular order:

--Hanging Rock State Park

--Pilot Mtn. State Park

--Uwharrie National Forest

--NC Farmer's Market

-rent a canoe or pedal boat at High Point City Lake Park

--Pick-your-own strawberry farms

--Horseback riding at Tanglewood Park

--help out on a Habitat for Humanity project

--Check the event schedules for the many area colleges for concerts, guest speakers, exhibitions etc. (e.g., Elon, WFU, WSSU, Guilford)
