What to do and see in Kernersville, United States: The Best Places and Tips

December 30, 2017 Brandee Mangan

Kernersville is a town in Forsyth County, in the U.S. state of North Carolina. A small portion of the town is also in Guilford County. The population was 23,123 at the 2010 census, up from 17,126 at the 2000 census. Kernersville is located at the center of the Piedmont Triad metropolitan area, between Greensboro to the east, High Point to the south, and Winston-Salem to the west. Some of the rural farmland surrounding the town has been sold and turned into large middle-to-upper-class housing developments, and numerous large shopping centers have been built in the town over the past few years. Flue-cured tobacco was the major crop grown in the area and is still grown in some areas today. While Kernersville went through a growth spurt in the first decade of the 21st century, it has leveled off and farms are doing well for the most part in an attempt to revitalize the agricultural community.

Triad Park

Reviewed By girdyatsea - Colfax, North Carolina

This park is my favorite. Beautiful grounds. Walking trails, biking trails, disk golf, playgrounds, volleyball areas, picnic tables, shelters, amphitheater and a beautiful Field of Honor. Love taking the kids here on beautiful days and let them play on the playground while I relax on a blanket and read. I like taking the dogs here too and they enjoy it too. I recommend checking this place out.

Paul J Ciener Botanical Garden

This is a beautiful garden and is extremely well kept. There is a huge variety of plants from succulents to vegetables. It looked as if an amphitheater was being constructed. We were there early on a Sunday morning and their office and gift shop were closed.

The Wright Stuff

We offer flight simulation on our four networked flight stations. You can dogfight with your friends or fly civilian aircraft from just about any airport in the world. WWII aerial dogfights are the most popular! We also host birthday or office parties for up to 8. We even offer marriage counseling, well kind of, a dogfight is a great way to decide who's right! We recently added Virtual Reality, so reserve an experience. Take a trip to the moon or explore the depths of the deep blue sea. We are conveniently located near Greensboro, High Point and Winston Salem. Experience the excitement of a dogfight without ever leaving the ground, and appreciate the amount of work and determination required to survive to fight another day. Reservations required!

Row boats and paddle boats are very inexpensive to rent. We had a great time. We picnicked after. Everything was very clean, even the restrooms. We will be back and recommend it. For $3 (3 hour rental) we spent an afternoon and had a great time. It was very beautiful too.

Warehouse Mall NC

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

You can find just about anything here. It's hard to tell where the entrance is though because there are other businesses in the same warehouse and the antique store isn't really marked very well. A few of the booths are cluttered but not enough to make it hard to see things and some of them are sort of tight. They do have very wide aisles though. We walked out with a few items. It was a hot day when we were there and apparently it's hard to cool off such a large warehouse because it became very warm in there. Other than the heat I really enjoyed the place.

Homeplace Pottery

Reviewed By NCTraveler2015 - Raleigh, North Carolina

Homeplace Pottery is now open by appointment as the business slows its production. But the pieces are still fabulous and high quality. The work is great and they are creative with the glazes. I am happy with my purchases and everything I bought can be put in the dishwasher so that makes things easier for me. I love my most recent purchases too.

Hot Yoga Therapy

Reviewed By timonly - Atlanta, Georgia

It is a great exercise to stretch and balance our body. Perhaps, it is private location and small group only be taken at a time by appointment only. YOGA was room hot temperature, it is naturally sweating being in the room and helps to relax the muscle to avoid injury I think.

Reviewed By Adam1128 - High Point, North Carolina

I enjoyed the horse ride first time, with my wife, and went back two days later with our daughter. Amanda and her Team do a wonderful job caring for the horses, and were great hosts. The horses were very gentle and easy to ride. Trails were scenic, full of natural growth, and scenery, and the property and whole are is very well kept.
If you are looking for a few hours of horse riding, communing with nature, or just doing something different - give Amanda a call and get yourself scheduled for a nice trail ride. Experienced riders, or novices are welcomed - and special care is provided to make sure the ride is fun and safe.
Gold Leaf also hosts Birthday Parties, and more. We very much enjoyed the break from 'normal' and riding horses. The farm is just 15 minute ride from Highway 40, and located in some of the most beautiful farmland in the Piedmont Triad area. Absolutely recommend it for a nice horse ride....
