The Strollway begins with a sidewalk tour of Winston-Salem's quirky Trade Street Arts District. A few blocks south, it becomes a tree-lined, curb-free path leading travelers past skyscrapers and fountains, to a deep drop under Business 40, by an old railroad depot, though the corner of an office building, and on to the clapboards and split rails of 18th-century Old Salem. It's a true adventure.
