Things To Do

A great place to be: Winston-Salem was recently named as a top ten “fun, affordable” city in the US

Salem's location offers you the perfect blend of an exciting city and a friendly close-knit village. Make some history of your own in Old Salem, a restored 18th century village which adjoins Salem's campus. The trade shops, bakeries, restaurants and costumed tour guides add a special spirit to your Salem experience.

A five-minute walk takes you into downtown Winston-Salem. Known as the "City of the Arts and Innovation," Winston-Salem is an exciting hub of culture, business and biotechnology. Choose from more than 60 clubs and restaurants and a variety of 70 shops and galleries. Go to the Gallery Hops. See an independent film at aperture theatre. Catch a concert at Ziggy's. Join the "College Night" crowd at the brand-new Dash baseball stadium. It's a great place to meet people!!

Enjoy the six mile Salem Lake Greenway within walking distance - a beautiful spot to bike, boat or jog.

In addition to being one of the largest cities in NC, Winston-Salem is also a college town. With Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem State University and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, you will have many options for an active college social life.
