Main to Main Trail Discover Salisbury in a New Way

The NC Main to Main Trail is a unique way to experience the Salisbury, community. Since 1980, the State of North Carolina has been selecting cities and towns of all sizes to carry the distinction as designated North Carolina Main Street communities. As one of the first designated NC Main Street Community, Downtown Salisbury actively engages in the Main Street America network and follows the Main Street Approach™ to revitalize our downtown district.

Main Street communities are destinations from the Great Smokies and the Blue Ridge Mountains, the urban growth of Piedmont, to the eastern inner banks to the coastal plains. Our downtown district (Southwest Region) features architectural treasures from typical commercial buildings, governmental icons, and cultural attractions. Locally owned shops, restaurants, and spirits offer the community many unique options. Stroll our downtown tree-lined streets to take in the district’s flavor and understand why the locals call Salisbury home.
