Winston-Salem is a city of many nicknames. Some call the North Carolina college city the "Twin City" after the towns Winston and Salem were merged to form Winston-Salem in 1913. R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company’s famous Camel cigarettes were first produced here, which gave the city the nickname "Camel City.” Many locals call Winston-Salem "The Dash," a reference to the hyphen between Winston and Salem and the name of a local baseball team. Whatever you call it, this city in North Carolina has attractions to suit most travelers.

Winston-Salem is home to Wake Forest University. Enjoy a walk through the picturesque college campus, which is regarded as one of the most beautiful in the country. There are always musical, theatrical and dance performances happening on campus. The Hanes Art Gallery is dedicated to cotton magnate Philip Hanes and his wife Charlotte for their contributions to the arts. The gallery frequently hosts exhibits featuring international artists.

Downtown Arts District, known as DADA, is a popular area downtown. Browse art galleries, studios and shops or enjoy a meal in one of its many cafés.Take children of all ages to the SciWorks. Browse a state-of-the-art planetarium, dozens of exhibits and a large environmental park.
