What’s So Great About Winston-Salem

What’s so great about Winston-Salem? That’s what you’ll find out by browsing around the various pages of this website and visiting our Facebook page. You’ll learn that Winston-Salem is a green city and boasts one of the top Farmer’s Markets in the country. The low cost of living and high job growth make it an optimal place to live during these trying economic times. Each neighborhood has its unique qualities.

Winston-Salem was North Carolina’s primary city in its heyday, with booming textile industries and tobacco fields stretching as far as the eye could see. However, the Arts (think RiverRun International Film Festival and the famous NC School of the Arts) and the biotech and healthcare industries have taken center stage recently. Providing excellent medical care, great potential job opportunities, and phenomenal cultural experiences. We have all the pluses of a big city with a small-city feel.


Of course, the history remains. A visit to Old Salem or Bethabara will take you back to a time of horse-drawn carriages, cobblestone streets, wood-oven bakeries, and more. Don’t miss out on the famous Moravian cookies – baked by Dewey’s – the world’s thinnest (and we like to think tastiest) cookie! Take historical tours, along with people in period clothing, and witness how things were done before our modern conveniences. Learn and take part in old traditions, some still practiced today.

At the top is printed Since 1883. The building it is hanging on is sand colored with a green awning and has large display windows in front. Above the awning are windows for offices or apartments.
Mast General Store opened in Winston-Salem in May of 2015. We are the 10th store Mast General opened. We were very proud to be chosen to have the store here, and it helped bring traffic to the arts district downtown.

Winston-Salem also has its sports scene with the Minor League Baseball team The Dash, a farm team of the Chicago White Sox playing in our own Truist Stadium, and the internationally known ATP tennis tournament, The Winston-Salem Open, being hosted each summer. The public courts are meticulously kept and frequently resurfaced. We also have our very own Demon Deacons; Wake Forest University’s men’s basketball team represents WFU in NCAA college basketball and competes in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).

North Carolina Is Home Too!

Winstonites, as we like to call ourselves, love not only Winston-Salem – but the surrounding countryside as well. From the Yadkin Valley Wine Country – a growing and increasingly respected wine region – to the NASCAR events – to hiking in the Appalachians, biking along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and skiing or snowboarding in the winter, there is always something for everyone here.
