After venturing inland several hours, we came across the smallish city of Winston-Salem, another one with a rich heritage dating back to the first European settlers of North America. The West End historic district is the perfect place to walk around and get in a bit of shopping or eating. We enjoyed walking in the Historic Bethabara Park, where there are two restored period buildings. There are plenty of museums in the city, and also many institutions of learning- including the women-only Salem College, and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.
