Light up your holiday season by celebrating with an escape to charming Winston-Salem.  Enjoy a getaway at The Historic Brookstown Inn, nestled in the heart of downtown. Originally an 1837 cotton mill, The Brookstown Inn features nightly wine and cheese receptions, warm cookies and milk each evening, and a freshly prepared hot Southern breakfast every morning. Wake up to the smell of locally roasted coffee from Twin City Hive and delight in delicious Mrs. Hanes’ Handmade Moravian Cookies. Take in the beauty at Old Salem Museums & Gardens and observe works of art at Reynolda House Museum of American Art and Reynolda Gardens & Greenhouse, a premier museum for American art that features world-class exhibits regularly. Shop for some of the best finds at Mast General Store in the downtown arts district and pack them away in your roomy Visit Winston-Salem “Look Forward, Travel Backpack” and dashing leather luggage tag. Afterwards, you can stop in for some delectable eats at the Canteen Market & Bistro. This weekend will be so relaxing, you might not remember what year it is.
