Hey Everyone! I'll be spending one day in Winston-Salem near the end of March. What are some must see or do's for someone who has never visited and has only 1 day. I already have Old Salem and Krispy Kreme on the agenda. Any other ideas? Thanks!

You've got a good start.

If you like art:

across Reynolda Road from each other:
Reynolda House - American Art Museum - former home of R. J. Reynolds
SECCA (Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art) - contemporary art

While in the neighborhood, Reynolda Village is the former support village to the Reynolda estate. It's long been converted to upscale specialty shops.

Downtown Arts District - all kinds of funky galleries & shops
Piedmont Craftsmen - fine craft - in the Arts District


If you go to the Arts District or are downtown otherwise, Sweet Potatoes is a must for dining... southern cuisine with a modern twist.

Second the recommendation of Sweet Potatoes, but would also suggest Mozelle's on 4th St in the West End.

If you get to West End, take a detour down Burke Street. Many cool shops, mostly consignment and craft, where you can find some unique items. Search out a shop named Ideas. My wife thinks it's the best one in town.

If you have kids with you, the Childrens Museum (near Old Salem) is worth a look as well.

I live downtown so my suggestions are geared towards this area of town. If you are going to be visiting Old Salem anyway, expanding your adventure to the whole of downtown will give you plenty of things to do.
