Lake Oconee’s Hometown
Southern charm and small town service await you in historic Greensboro, Lake Oconee’s Hometown.
Downtown Greensboro has been the place to shop for more than a hundred years, long before Interstate 20 was the road most traveled. In the 1800’s Greensboro’s “Big Store”, in the heart of town, was the largest mercantile on the road between Atlanta and Augusta.
Today, the historic shopping district features regionally known restaurants, boutiques, home décor, gift shops and a brewery. Shoppers browse upscale clothiers or search for the perfect antique, all in beautifully restored downtown where old fashioned service isn’t so old fashioned after all.
Visitors will find handcrafted art created by Georgia artisans or unique treasures from the antique stores and grab a pint of refreshing beer perfectly crafted in Greensboro.
Downtown dining offers country cooking, Georgia BBQ, deli sandwiches, ethnic cuisine, fresh produce, steaks, seafood and of course world famous Buttermilk Pie!
Stroll the streets of Downtown Greensboro, enjoy the history and unique finds in the one of a kind small town.
