The Most Historic Gas Station In North Carolina Belongs On Your Bucket List

The Tar Heel State is home to a number of awe-worthy roadside attractions (see 15 in this previously published article). However, the giant shell gas station in Winston Salem is among our favorites. It was built in 1930 as a marketing tool for a new local Shell distributor and it’s giant facade is one every North Carolinian should see in person.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
