Outdoor yoga, natural spa treatments, and forest walks – wellness is tied to nature in the NC Triad. Here’s how you can add a bit of rest and relaxation to your outdoor adventure.

Get a massage at a local spa, do yoga at a park or brewery, take a hike or go horseback riding… find whatever fuels you in the Triad. 

If your idea of wellness is cozying up by the fire and sleeping under the stars, claim a spot at a local campground in and near state parks and spend your days fishing, boating, and hiking. At night, retreat to your tent, RV, or cozy cabin. 

Practice mindfulness with a stroll around area gardens, like the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden, featuring an interactive Sensory Garden and larger-than-life sculptures. If your kind of stroll involves wine, plenty of wineries and vineyards in the Yadkin Valley welcome guests for a relaxing wine-tasting excursion.

For an indoor retreat, indulge in herbal treatments at area spas like the Grandover Resort & Spa in Greensboro, just one of the many day and resort spas across the Triad.

You don’t have to sacrifice taste and your health during vacation. Triad restaurants offer both spice and locally-grown produce in their cuisine. For fresh grain bowls, salads, and sandwiches with vegan and vegetarian options, dine at Yamas Mediterranean Street Food in Winston-Salem. You’ll find plenty of farm-to-fork options across the Triad, including the Undercurrent Restaurant in Greensboro.

If shopping is part of your ideal wellness getaway, look no further than the town of Seagrove. The area is home to pottery studios and galleries, like Seagrove Creations Pottery Gallery and Ray Pottery, where you may find one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by the natural elements.

Wellness has a variety of meanings in the Triad, and all connect you with nature for a relaxing retreat in the Triad.
