THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE—TRIAD NC | VOLUME 14—ISSUE 1 28 WINSTON-SALEM The Mast General Store is more than a store, it is a destination. The old timey store is one of the city's most visited. Apparel, outdoor gear and other goods mix with gifts, home décor and the family favorite candy section that screams come-and-try-me with more than 500 varieties. Living downtown makes sense for a growing number of residents. Local resident Anne Walter embraces the lifestyle. "We had been living in a single-family home for 40 years and we were ready to try condo living," said Walter. "The best thing is having so many businesses within walking distance: a pharmacy, post ofce, bank, movie theatre, ftness center, Old Salem and lots of restaurants. Since my husband and I both work from home, there are many days when we never have the need to drive anywhere. There are many musical events in the spring and summer; I love seeing the streets blocked of and people of all ages dancing." Staying overnight is a treat in the Twin City. Newly opened Doubletree by Hilton and Kimpton Cardinal Hotel ofer elegance and pampering. The Hilton property's modern décor celebrates the arts and innovation for which Winston-Salem is known and ofers Hilton amenities.
