There is a drive around the battlefield that allows visitors to step out of their cars and read about what happened at each station. See the video first.

Unless you're local, or a national park / Revolutionary War nerd; you've probably never heard of this park. It's well worth looking into. Morning Greensboro traffic wasn't bad, for which I was thankful given the several turns to be negotiated. However, be ready if you go in the morning from the north or west, you will have to contend with... More

A nice walk, and good signage without detracting from the nature of this area. Describes the purpose of the park to remember those who died in wars and the importance of Guilford County. Need better descriptions of the Courthouse... or maybe I missed it. I loved the winding paths and its easy to choose different routes and not get lost.... More

This is one of the best NPS battleground sites for the American Revolution. There is a first rate visitor center and the park itself is great. It's a must for history buffs and a good place to take kids to learn about the history of our country. The walking tour is short enough to be enjoyed in an afternoon and... More

This National Park contains an outstanding Visitor Center with excellent resources (staff, film, books, museum displays) to explain the course and historical significance of the battle. Although the British army held the ground at the close of the battle, the American army's fierce fighting inflicted severe casualties upon the British resulting in the loss of 25% of the British army's...

Exhibits give a great explanation of both the importance of this battle in the Revolutionary War and how it played out. A 2-1/4 driving or walking tour offers a chance to really immerse yourself in the field. I felt I learned a lot here.

This park has nice trails for folks on foot, on bikes, or with dogs and/or strollers and children in tow. There is a lake with paddleboats and areas to reserve for picnics. There is also the historical significance and plenty of statues and markers and information boards to tell you all about what happened where. A couple of times a... More

This is a beautiful park with lots of history! The park is very clean and well tended. I've been living in Greensboro for 30 years and this is a favorite place to visit and walk around. Just beautiful!

This may be the site that changed the war for independence, though Cornwallis claimed the victory his army was so badly mauled it never recovered and set the stage for Yorktown
