Goldsboro, North Carolina Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Goldsboro, in the central Piedmont area of the state, is a small town with a big past. Its position as a railroad junction town made Goldsboro valuable during the Civil War, so valuable that Union General Sherman invaded it on his march through the Carolinas. Today, the town is known for its outdoor recreation, unique natural sights and as the home of Mount Olive Pickle Company.

Goldsboro's historic downtown features the Wayne County Museum plus shopping and dining opportunities. Nearby, Waynesborough Historical Village presents 19th century life at sites such as a Quaker Meeting House and Tuscarora Indian Village.

See a spectacular series of cliffs rising 90 feet about the waters of the Neuse River at Cliffs of the Neuse State Park where hiking, fishing and camping are popular. Several companies offer guided river tours. Enjoy hiking along Wayne County Trail or golfing at a local course.

Dining centers on barbecue in Goldsboro; legend has it that vinegar-based, eastern North Carolina barbecue was invented here. For a sample, try Scott's Barbecue, one of the oldest barbecue restaurants in the state. There are plenty of places to hang your hat for the night in Goldsboro with most any chain motel found in the town.

Goldsboro is located in central North Carolina, at the junction of US 117 and US 70, about one hour southeast of Raleigh.
