Winston-Salem is known as North Carolina’s “City of Arts and Innovation,” priding itself on preserving history while fostering a spirit of reinvention. With over 5,000 area hotel rooms, 1,200 in our vibrant downtown alone, Winston-Salem is an ideal destination for your next getaway. Discover our award-winning downtown buzzing with an eclectic arts scene and more than 100 restaurants, bars, and diverse shopping options. After exploring the newly revitalized downtown, take a step back in time to Old Salem Museums & Gardens, where guests are immersed into the 18th century Moravian way of life at one of America’s most authentic colonial sites. You don’t have to look far for a day’s worth of art exploration, history tours and more. Just minutes from downtown, the Reynolda Mile – once home to Winston-Salem’s most elite families during the Roaring 20s – offers visitors a peek inside these historic homes. Visit the historic home of R.J. and Katharine Reynolds, now Reynolda House Museum of American Art. Make time to stop by the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA). Once home to textile industrialist James G. Hanes, SECCA features rotating exhibits that push boundaries and spark conversation.
