If you like cheesy things, then this is your stop. Even though the shop was closed when we stopped, it was fun to take some quick photos.

Was built in 1930, possibly the last of the shell-shaped stations in the US. It is located in a rougher neighborhood. It's fine during daylight hours. There's street parking and the hair salon across the street has a parking lot.

Great little side trip stop. It’s in a residential/business area and off the beaten path a bit (40hwy) but if in the area worth the stop for some fun pictures.

This is a very small location in an old neighborhood. Not a lot of room to park, and some of the locals keep an eye out on the property

Four stars for personality and uniqueness. This is in a random neighborhood in Winston Salem. Just a couple miles from downtown. This is the only remaining shell station that is actually a shell. You'll never find another one, anywhere in the world. I wouldn't make a special trip to see it, but if you're near it or in the general vicinity, stop by to see it. When will you ever have that chance again? It's kitschy and fun and makes for a neat photo op. It's on an easily accessible corner with plenty of parking for a tiny roadside attraction. Do it, why not?

This is not something the average traveler should go out of the way to visit. As a long time local, also would caution regarding night visits.

You just need to stop here!! It is right off of Highway 52. A great photo-op place. It has been well maintained once it was restored a few years ago. And the story behind it is great too!!!

One of, if not the only, still standing "Shell" stations in the USA. Great place to snap a photo or two.
