So Much to Discover in Downtown Winston-Salem

By Guest Bloggers Suzy Fielders and Ashley Dougherty

Sometimes we are so busy planning “get-aways” and vacations that we forget how much our own Triad cities have to offer! Our guest bloggers today have put together an amazing list of some of their favorite entertainment venues, restaurants, museums, health & wellness facilities, parks, salons, and retail shops which can all be found in the heart of Winston-Salem.

Take a look and discover some new venues that you may never have heard of before and please add your comments at the end if you have additional suggestions, or can add some thoughts on the places we already have listed. Thanks to Suzy and Ashley for this list! ~Rachel
