One of my new year's goals is to go somewhere new once a month. So, I thought I'd start running a list of places around here that might be fun to go to, so that when I start looking for ideas, I have somewhere to look.

- Greensboro Historical Museum (free) (on the calendar for next Friday after work) (visited Jan 31!)
- International Civil Rights Museum ($10)
- Blandwood Mansion ($8)
- Green Hill Center for NC Art (free)
- Alamance County Historical Museum (free)
- Sebastian Medical Museum (free)
- Tannebaum Historic Park (free)
- The David Caldwell Historic Park (free)
- Textile History Museum (free)
- Cedarock Historical Farm (free)

- Hanging Rock (free for most stuff) (Danbury, about an hour)

Also, need to flip through the driving day trips book from Jill and see what looks good, too.

Do not forget for the Hanging Rock trip and the Old Salem trip and the Horne Creek Farm trip that you have a lovely sister that lives really close to those places!!!! Hope
