Here are a few destina- tions and venues across the South that work hard to offer a solid portfolio of options. Winston-Salem "Attendees find our walkable downtown an added benefit for families," said Christian Schroeder, director of sales with Visit Winston-Salem. "With more than 100 restaurants and 30 galleries and muse- ums, there are a variety of options to enjoy at varying price points." Greensboro, N.C. "Greensboro is rich in history and family-friendly attrac- tions and events," said Amy Scott, director of marketing with the Greensboro CVB. "Depending on the time of year, there is something for families, whether it is attend- ing the National Folk Festival – a free, three-day event – to taking the family to Wet'n Wild, the Carolinas' largest water park."
