Girls Getaway For Fun Things To Do In Winston Salem NC
After a recent girls getaway with my oldest daughter before she left for college, I’m excited to share with you all the fun things to do in Winston Salem, NC! I’ve frequently travelled Interstate 77, (I-77) through Winston-Salem on my travels along the East Coast. I’m always passing through Winston-Salem, situated between the Atlantic Ocean and Blue Ridge Mountains… but this was my first visit to the city. I’m so glad I took a few days to explore and peel back the layers of this historic town.

Tour Mrs. Hanes Moravian Cookies –
4643 Friedberg Church Rd. Clemmons, NC 27012
The history behind the Hanes family explains how these popular cookies came about. Mrs. Hanes need to provide extra income for her large family. She began to make and sell these cookies from home. Her cookies became so popular she couldn’t keep up with demand even with baking from her oven around the clock.
Now local “artists in aprons” hand cut, hand roll, and hand pack cookies daily. More than 110,000 pounds of the “world’s thinnest” cookies are made each year. The story behind this family owned business is truly inspirational. Of the six flavors made, ginger is the most popular flavor. Sugar and lemon run a close tie for second and third. These thin, crisp cookies are filled with immense flavor. Each cookie celebrates the roots of the Moravian weaved into the culture of Winston Salem. This unique experience is in our top three of places you must visit while in WS!
