Goldsboro, NC, is a friendly city that’s best known as home to the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. But, with its beautiful scenery and a buzzing downtown, it won’t take you long to discover that Goldsboro, or IHG’s Goldsboro hotels, has as much to offer on the ground as it does off of it.
The Arts Council of Wayne County keeps the culture scene alive and kicking. Check while you're there for a packed schedule of exhibitions, performances, workshops and art classes. Make sure to take a look at the beautiful Paramount Theatre, which dates back to 1882 (although it received a much-needed facelift in 2008) and is headquarters for the performing arts. You won’t want to miss one of their much lauded performances.
Add the city’s popular bowling lanes, an impressive all-terrain-vehicle track and plenty of opportunity to spot low-flying planes, and you’ll find there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained during your time in Goldsboro.
Just outside the city, the famous Neuse River gives the area a dramatic vista. The 90 feet high cliffs form an awe-inspiring gorge that speaks to the river’s 2-million year history. You can nature-spot, bike or hike in the state park that surrounds the river, but the highlight has to be the boating opportunities along the 70 miles of interconnected waterways that wind through the rest of Wayne County. Rent a boat of your own and explore all the water has to offer.
