Spring has officially sprung in Winston Salem and the weather is meant to be beautiful, sunny but hot. I wanted to share some of my favorite things to do this month in the area with you, because we are so lucky to be surrounded by beauty in this wonderful part of North Carolina.
One of my favorite places to visit this time of year is Old Salem, with lots of opportunities for family fun, history, farmers markers and lots of great places to eat including my personal favorites the tavern and the tea room.
This weekend we have some fun local events to check out.
The 19th annual wine festival at Tanglewood Park: http://ncwinefestival.com/
Tanglewood has something for everyone walking trails, playgrounds, swimming pool, horse riding stables, golf, camping tennis and now even soft golf. It is a must for at least one trip this summer.
If music is your thing then check out the Gears & Guitars festival downtown at Bailey Park this weekend: https://www.gearsandguitarsfest.com/
Go support our local MILB team the Dash: https://www.milb.com/winston-salem
Its a great time for some family fun, Be sure to check out the website for the specials including Free Food Monday, taco Tuesday, Thirsty Thursdays and Fireworks Friday. It really is great affordable fun for everyone.
