Winston-Salem's downtown works a little like magic. Once you step into the historic district of Old Salem, you may as well have stepped back into 1772 (with the added bonus of jeans and tennis shoes). The Old Salem district, declared a National Historic Landmark in 1966, is a 100-acre representation of the first settlement in 1766 complete with restored shops, churches and live reenactments. The downtown is otherwise separated into four areas (Western Districts, Arts Districts, Fourth Street Districts and South Districts). Each district has its own look and feel.
