We took a similar trip a few months ago and these were the highlights:

Thomas Jefferson's estate in Monticello

James Town historical settlement

The Blue Ridge Parkway

---- Have fun!

www.visitnc.com. Wineries will also be along your route in both NC & Va. if that holds an interest. One of the better ones is http://www.villaappalaccia.com/index.htm & it is right off the Parkway. There are also several in close proximity to I-77 near Elkin & the Va. border. Old Salem (in Winston-Salem) although a bit out of your way, may also be worth a stop www.oldsalem.org. www.blueridgeparkway.org, www.nps.gov/blri

We've decided on Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Winston-Salem, Halifax and the Outer Banks. There and back in 10 days including travel from California. Any suggestions on restaurants or sites along the route? Thanks...bea

You may want to rethink the OBX portion, not easily accessible & very time-consuming w/the limited amount of time you have.

I am glad you have included Winston Salem in your itinerary. Old Salem is a wonderful restoration and well worth your time.
Restaurants:
Milners-low country, very good, moderate price
1703-American with French influence, highend
Mary's Of Course-casual, organic, hippy mood, low price
Simply Yummy- casual, organic, not so hippy, low price (in Reynolda Village)

B and B-Augustus Zeverly House in Old Salem.

Enjoy your visit and welcome to North Carolina.

From the book "Red Hills and Cotton" by Ben Robertson:

"To my grandmother, heaven was a May morning in Carolina.'

But take your Claritin. Everything will be in bloom.
