Favorite Places to Take Out-of-Town Guests

If you have visitors coming to town, check out our list of favorite places to take your out-of-town guests!

We get it – when you have friends or family come visit you here in Winston-Salem, you want to make sure they get a great taste of the Camel City. The good news is there’s plenty to choose from, so no matter what your guests are into you’ll be able to create a sure-to-please agenda. Plus, one of the benefits of living in a smaller city is you won’t be stuck in your car forever as you take your guests around town. (All of us residents already understand that, of course, but if your guests come from a bigger city they’ll probably be thrilled by the lack of traffic and drive times needed to get around Winston.)

Here are some of our favorite places to take your out-of-town guests to really make Winston-Salem shine, grouped by category:


First thing’s first, right? (If you’re like us, your plans will probably circulate around meals, so it made sense to start the list with some of Winston’s best places to eat.)

Sweet Treats

A visit is always made sweeter with a delicious dessert added to the mix! Whether baked goods, ice cream, or hand-crafted chocolate is your guest’s thing, Winston’s got you covered.


Whether it’s coffee, kombucha, or an adult beverage, finding a coffee shop, winery, or brewery to sit, sip, and enjoy one another’s company can be the perfect thing to weave into a guest’s visit to Winston. 

Outdoor Exploration

Want to get out in nature with your out-of-town guest? Choose one of these below locations – some of which are more remote than others – to enjoy being outside together and taking in the natural beauty of the Piedmont.


If retail therapy sounds enticing, Winston has some great places to get that shopping fix with a local slant.
