Revisit The 1950s With A Stay In This Eclectic Motor Lodge In North Carolina

The next time you’re hoping for a great, big dose of nostalgia, then head to Cherokee, North Carolina and book a room at the Pink Motel. Drive-up motor lodges like this one are becoming a casualty of progress. Fortunately, though, the Pink Motel and its vintage neon Tinkerbell sign are still thriving as if it’s still 60 or 70 years ago, when a place like this was your first choice when you could afford to travel – and get a nice place to spend the night.
