What do cigarettes, Krispy Kreme, and banking all have in common? Here in the states, they can all trace their roots back to Winston-Salem! When R.J. Reynolds founded his tobacco company here in the late 1800’s, it was quite a bit different than the metropolitan area we see today. Nanotech, biotech, and advanced medical research companies are all finding their homes here and even PepsiCo is muscling in with massive investments in the area as well.

Downtown Arts District

<p>Like most cities in America, Winston-Salem is undergoing a cultural evolution when it comes to the arts, and nowhere is this more apparent than the Downtown Arts District, or DADA for short. What used to be low rise warehouses and industrial shops have since been transformed into working studios, art galleries, antique dealers and restaurants. It's easy to find and definitely worth a day exploring. You never know what hidden treasure you might find at any number of indie shops.</p>

West End Historic District

<p>Another spot not to be missed in this eclectic town is the West End Historic District. Located near West 4th St. and Brookstown Ave., this area is mostly known for its fantastic dining and shopping options. Originally built for Winston-Salem's wealthy elite, it has since opened up to tourists and locals alike and is a perfect place to take in some pedestrian charm of the city itself. Believe it or not, some people come for the porch designs alone on the multi-million dollar estates that still line the row. Come check it out and have a bite while you're there. You won't be disappointed.</p>
