Winston-Salem is often referred to as the "City of the Arts" - and they certainly live up to the name. Home to the very first arts council in the U.S., this is also where the "Art-o-mat" - an actual vending machine for art - was born. Have yourself a scavenger hunt and check out the nine that are still scattered throughout the city. And to really get a sense of local artistry, the Arts District (filled with galleries and workshops) is centered around Sixth and Trade Streets.
Head to Fourth Street for plenty of great restaurant and bar choices. For shopping, there's no shortage of huge shopping malls - but locals insist that the Mast General Store (in the Arts District) is a must-visit.
And when it comes to innovation, the city is at the forefront. Its Wake Forest Innovation Quarter (backed by the local Wake Forest Medical Center) is a massive hub where entrepreneurs have the opportunity to work alongside scientists and researchers in over 200 acres of space. The Quarter's main focus is on furthering research and development in the fields of biomedical, material sciences, and information technology. Based on this research, plus capital from the local Wake Forest University, Wake Forest Innovations was created to take these discoveries and work with entrepreneurs to establish and manage new business, partnerships, licenses, and start-up companies.
