“Can't wait to go back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2012

I had a very quick trip to Old Salem for a lunch meeting and shop at museum gift shop. I really enjoyed lunch as well as the trip to the bakery. The gift shop was disappointing, but I did find other shopping options that were more interesting. I'm entrigued, and look forward to returning for more exploration.

Taking you back to an earlier time. The peace of the past is alive. I'm grateful to be able to see how my ancestors lived.

“Wow...so wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

Old Salem is another gem in the state of NC. A little pricey, but the tours of this Moravian village, historical re-enactments, and beautiful scenery are worth the sacrifice.
