About Winston-Salem

Where History Meets Reinvention


Trip of photos of Winston-Salem activities including gardening at Old Salem, downtown yoga, and the new Kaleidium Childrens Museum Throughout our city’s 265-year history, reinvention and artistic expression have remained the heart of our inspiration. Here, sprawling tobacco farms were transitioned into world-class wineries, treasured historic buildings were reborn as sophisticated boutique hotels, and abandoned factories were transformed into hubs of innovation for world-renowned biotech research. Through it all, the city has remained a haven for forward-thinking businesses and entrepreneurial innovators.
