The Twin City has a multitude of hidden gems. It was so hard for us to choose what to include — especially ones you’ve probably never heard about. Let’s have a rundown, shall we?

  • Old Salem Heritage Bridge: Located in the heart of Old Salem, this landmark attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year. You can take a tour or register for a workshop and learn about Moravian culture.
  • Reynolda House Museum of American Art: The 170+ acre historic district is on the National Register of Historic Places and is hard to miss.
  • Innovation Quarter: The mixed-use hub of innovation is adding 2.7 million total square feet downtown with a public-private investment of more than $841 million. The hub features fun and family friendly activities year-round.

Just kidding. Happy April Fools’ Day, WStoday. You knew that was coming.
