Trip duration: 10 days

Brandon Hughes

Tropical Smoothie Cafe


A new day has begun, which promised to be very productive and full. We got together in the morning and set off on our way to a small Tropical Smoothie Cafe. It has a very pleasant atmosphere and a cozy interior. We ordered ourselves a quesadilla with chicken, as well as several different sandwiches.

U.S. National Whitewater Center

Rafting Spots

The U.S. National Whitewater Center is a place where you can do more than just rafting, the park offers a wide variety of activities, including climbing, rafting, downhill skiing, mountain biking and much more. If we had enough time, we could spend the whole day here.

Old Salem Museums & Gardens

Historic Sites

The next stop on the way east for us was a very curious historical place called Old Salem. Today any tourist who finds himself in these places, thanks to the work of specialists in reconstruction, can learn a lot about the life of the people who once founded the settlement of Bethany, and later Salem itself. The center is characterized by interesting original architecture that cannot be found anywhere else in the United States.

AC Hotel by Marriott Chapel Hill Downtown

Sweet Potatoes

Southern / Soul Food Restaurants

We walked around Salem for quite a long time, looked at its architecture and sightseeing and in the end we wanted to have a little rest and snack, for this we went to a small restaurant Sweet Potatoes. The atmosphere was very cozy here, we ordered ourselves fried wings and some salads for the second.

Greensboro Arboretum


We made it to a small town in Greensboro. Since we had already been on the road for quite some time, it was decided to make a stop, and perhaps the best place for it was not to find the Greensboro Arboretum garden. There was an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity waiting for us, all the areas in the garden are well maintained and tidy, many different flowers and shrubs, in general, the ideal place to take a lot of pictures.

Mediterranean Deli

Mediterranean Restaurants

After a rather long walk, we left Greensboro. The evening was approaching, we had already travelled many miles, so it was decided to stay in the small town of Chapel Hill for today. And the first thing we did here was go to Mediterranean Deli. It was clear from the name that Mediterranean cuisine is served here. We chose a Mediterranean tuna and a chicken kebab.
