Downtown Kernersville, NC

I've been visiting the new Botanical Gardens on Main Street since last year.  They had their grand opening last Saturday, and I'm really excited about what it will bring to Kernersville!  The gardens are divine, and their plans for the future (walking paths, ponds, and of course lots of interesting plants, flowers and trees) really give us something to look forward to. Here are a few photos from their pattern garden a few days before the Grand Opening.  Love it, so beautiful!

If you haven't been to downtown Kernersville lately, you should definitely make the visit!  Especially on a Saturday, when the Kernersville Indie Flea is open for local handmade artisans and vintage sellers to sell their wares.  You can also visit Korner's Folly,  the strangest house in the world!  Kernersville's first train depot is also interesting for a quick stop. 

There's lots of shopping in Downtown Kernersville, independent local shops that usually close up by mid-afternoon on the weekend.

You can also bring the kids to one of several parks close by.  Harmon Park is located downtown, with playground equipment, picnic tables under a shelter, and a big open grassy area.  Drive a mile west down Mountain Street and you can enjoy Fourth of July Park, one of our favorite places to hang out.  You can also drive a few miles east to the Forsyth/Guilford county line and spend hours at Triad Park.
