The September issue of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles has a two page feature about Winston-Salem and it's family fun activities. This is in a special travel section, among features about St. Barth, Sedona, Big Sky, and Stowe VT among others. The nighttime photo of the facade of Graylyn caught my eye right away.

From Jen Wike in Raleigh :coolest:

http://downtowndame.com/2013/08/31/wins ... s-magical/

Winston, as most people in North Carolina call it, is a small city (population about 300,000) and an hour and 45 minutes west of Raleigh. It is home to Old Salem, the School of the Arts, and the famous author and poet Maya Angelou. The rich history of the area and influence of the arts makes Winston’s downtown eclectic… and honestly, fascinating. I had no idea what I was in for and was stunned by it’s character and personality. Here are a few shots from the day!

Well, thanks for the increase of 50k in population, but in my perception a city of 300k is mid-sized not small, and Raleigh is only about 400k - does that cross her perceptive threshold for a large city. And the two CSAs are only about 300K different. Although the W-S MSA and Raleigh MSA are about 500k apart, so I reckon she's more on target than I thought initially. "Lost count of the for rent and for sale signs..." - is this good or bad?

That is likely my favorite mural, TwinCity! I wish it was there when I was visiting back in July. Winston-Salem is starting to become an "oh wow" city, due to its arts & young creative community and their role in revitalization. I've seen a large number of surprised reactions to the city from recent visitors. I myself was extremely impressed with the city on my last visit! I think Winston-Salem is becoming the big city version of Asheville. When the streetcar is operational, the library is on Third Street, and the last of the old factories are filled, it should lead to the few remaining empty storefronts also filling and creating one of the best downtowns in the south. Keep a watch on the area where Fourth and Trade streets and meet! That area has needed something for a long time and finally has it with the Pepper Building, Courthouse, and Library. I fully expect additional new construction development in that area soon. All of the remaining pieces are finally coming together for downtown Winston-Salem and I expect to see more impressed visitors.

The city's murals have gotten a lot better. This is a high quality piece that does give W-S a big city feel. Vibrant cities showcase quality murals and this is the best so far IMO. Trade has a couple more abstract ones that I would rank 2nd and 3rd. MLK and Malcolm X on Waterworks and the 4th St CVS mural I would put 4th.

I just wish someone would put something in that building. I had posted in the past that I would like Red, Hot & Blue open up there replacing their site up on Deacon Blvd. Or they could put in their sister operation, Sticky Fingers. The entrance could be on the side along with a small outdoor patio. It would really fill in a gap there.

From Dave Shoemaker in Ohio :band:

Anyway, the other night I stayed in beautiful downtown Winston-Salem, NC. Not a bad city it turns out. There were a lot of restaurants and bars around my hotel, as I found out when I took The Spark for a walk around the neighborhood. I sauntered by a bunch of outdoor patios with lots of music playing, just a festive atmosphere all-around.

From Jess and Kade in Utah moving to W-S :coolest:

http://jessnkade.blogspot.com/2013_09_01_archive.html

Alright, brace yourselves for an onslaught of pictures of beautiful houses. Seriously, it was like driving through some kind of Hollywood movie location. Guys - EVERYONE has a beautiful house in Winston Salem! Well, at least a section of Winston Salem, called Ardmore. But this neighborhood is huge and while driving through I took at least a thousand pictures. It seemed like a really short stay, but I'm glad we went because I am actually really excited to move there! I think it'll be so much fun.
