Things To Do In Winston-Salem

Winston Wandering

Once a textile and tobacco town, modern-day Winston-Salem runs on research, art, academics, and technology. It’s home to six colleges, including Wake Forest University and the top-ranked University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and was the birthplace of Krispy Kreme donuts and Texas Pete hot sauce. “Winston,” as it’s known to locals, is beloved for its lush gardens and tree-lined streets, lively outdoor festivals, and rich Moravian culture.
