Top Reasons to Go

Raleigh museums: More than a dozen museums and historical sites—several within an easy walk of one another—cover every aspect of North Carolina life, from its prehistoric roots to its arts achievements and sports heroes.

Old Salem: Costumed guides fill this restored village in the heart of Winston-Salem, founded by the Moravian sect in the mid-18th century.

Sports and recreation: College basketball is serious business in these parts. You'll also find some of the best golf courses in the Southeast and abundant opportunities to get out and enjoy the Piedmont's lakes, rivers, and lovely landscapes.

Wineries: North Carolina has over 200 wineries, and many of the finest are in the Piedmont. Sample a few fine vintages in their tasting rooms.
