Greensboro Coliseum - Greensboro, NC
Greensboro Coliseum has hosted everything from professional sporting events to major concerts. It regularly welcomes the women’s and men’s NCAA and Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) tournaments. In 2015, the arena hosted the US Figure Skating National Championships and the USA Gymnastics Championships. Concerts and festivals are also popular, and the jam band Phish holds the Coliseum’s concert attendance record—it drew in more than 23,000 fans in 2003.
The Coliseum is about five minutes from downtown Greensboro, a city that offers a variety of dining and hotel options alongside museums, art galleries, shops, and historic tours. The city’s thriving nightlife includes a number of bars and clubs where fans enjoy listening to live bands or dancing to celebrate a victory (or distract from a loss) at the Coliseum. The venue has more than 6,000 parking spaces on-site, but they can quickly fill up on event days. However, there are plenty of parking lots and garages located nearby in the city.
