Welcome to Thomasville, NC
From where we sit… You can see it all!
The Chair City
Located between Washington, DC and Atlanta, between the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Outer Banks, between Raleigh and Charlotte, in the center of North Carolina with major interstates and international airports close by, Thomasville is also located at the intersection of the past and the future with an abundance of options for both leisure and recreation.
Thomasville has a unique blend of festivals, Civil War sites, historic buildings, the “World’s Largest Chair”
and more that pay tribute to the City’s rich history, while 21st century innovations help bring the past to life and enhance the visitor experience. As one of the top places in the state to watch trains the Visitors’ Center is such a blend. Housed in a passenger depot built circa 1870 with pictures and relics from the past, it also has an advanced train control system computer monitor showing where nearby trains are.
Similarly, you can stroll down memory lane at antiques shops or check out the latest creations of local art or furniture; take a historic walking tour through town or ride your new road bike through the country; attend a college baseball game at Historic Finch Field where hall-of-famers have played or watch your child participate in a travel sports tournament.
Whatever brings you to Thomasville… take time to see the sites and attractions both new and historic that make this place so special to so many!
