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.
