DOWNTOWN

THE HEART
OF IT ALL
DOWNTOWN BUSTLES WITH A LITTLE
BIT OF SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
BY: NANCY OAKLEY

T

taking in the sights along Winston-Salem's
downtown streets is a bit like traveling through time:
Over here, a sprawling Southern Gilded Age home;
over there, a rehabbed factory or a sleek, modernist
office building breaking new ground. In between, churches,
shops, restaurants, and both cultural and educational enterprises
make their homes here.
Because the downtown is fairly compact - but expanding -
you can absorb much of its energy on foot. Or, opt for a horsedrawn carriage for a tour of the city's oldest suburb, the leafy,
circa-1890 West End, so named for the westernmost stop on

projects contributing to the city's reinvention. To the south,

popular Winston-Salem Dash, and from there a warren of small
businesses and restaurants stretch from Burke Street to the
vibrant hub of downtown's main artery, Fourth Street. Stop in
the West End Coffeehouse on the corner of Fourth and Broad
