This 11-county region, which includes the Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point metropolitan areas, also encompasses the Yadkin Valley Wine Region (a designated American Viticulture Area) to the west, in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains. The downtown districts in this region are community centers that not only provide the majority of the jobs for local citizens, but also offer a rich collection of locally owned shopping, dining, and cultural amenities that celebrate the artistry of each county, entrepreneurship, and, of course, regional favorites such as Lexington style barbecue and sonker, a unique dessert made in Surry County. The Piedmont-Triad region is recognized as a transportation hub for the southeastern United States, a nucleus of higher education and progressive healthcare for North Carolina, and a rich cultural center that includes the U.S. Civil Rights Trail, the North Carolina Zoo, theaters, museums, dance and live music venues.. Follow the Yadkin Valley Wine Trail, explore beautiful hiking trails and state parks, kayak the lakes and rivers of central North Carolina, explore the arts scene and public art dotted throughout the region, and enjoy the economic vibrancy of the Piedmont-Triad region.
