The Triad

The Piedmont Triad (the Triad) consists of the area surrounding its three major cities, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point. The region’s economy has historically been tied to textiles, furniture, and tobacco, but new growth industries are emerging rapidly, including distribution, logistics, bio-technology, and aviation & aerospace. The area is also rich in history, playing a prominent role in the American Civil Rights Movement as well as home to furniture and pottery making, BBQ, and wineries. From the “Furniture Capital of the World” and the nation’s largest pottery community to our state’s most well-known wine region, Andy Griffith’s home, luxury lodging, and the nation's largest natural-habitat zoo, there is always something to explore in the Triad!
