Downtown Goldsboro Featured In N.C. Magazine

Downtown Goldsboro is taking off and climbing.  An article titled “Flying High” in this month’s Our State magazine is highlighting the turnaround and many developments and businesses in the city’s center.

Ashlin Glatthar is the Director of Travel and Tourism for Goldsboro and Wayne County.  She says the piece features in an issue themed around aviation.

The story came about thanks in part to a meeting between Glatthar and the Our State editor-in-chief at a tourism conference last year.  The editor was impressed with the downtown’s transformation.

Glatthar says as Goldsboro and Wayne County crafts its tourism identity, it’s been a challenge to establish any one thing that defines the area.  There are many things to celebrate in the area, including BBQ, agriculture, the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, and pickles.  Glatthar hopes the overall impression of Goldsboro is starting to change for the positive.

The February issue of Our State is out now. The full article can be found here.

    This can go along with other articles highlighting Goldsboro as one of the poorest / most dangerous cities in eastern NC. Along with having the most public housing per capita in NC.
