Tournament Town to Unlimited Awe

The Carolina Core has all the ingredients necessary for businesses and families to thrive. With affordable options for living, world-class healthcare, excellent public schools and endless entertainment opportunities, the communities in the Carolina Core offer options for everyone. Between the PGA Wyndham Championship and NCAA sports, the Winston-Salem Open, and numerous minor league and college teams, sports fans have a game to cheer on year-round. Natural landscapes provide space for adventure, from hiking to tubing—and even yoga in urban green spaces like Bailey Park.

Investing in Community Assets

Communities throughout the Carolina Core are investing in parks and public spaces, roads, and cultural centers that bring people together. The City of High Point’s Catalyst Project is bringing 15-20 new restaurants and shops, a centralized gathering space and 250 new residential housing units to the area surrounding the newly-opened baseball stadium of the High Point Rockers and Greensboro’s Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts is a 3,000-seat facility hosting everything from Broadway productions to family comedy shows.
