Downtown Salisbury contains a whopping thirteen National Register historic districts, and its neighborhoods full of antebellum estates, graceful Victorians, Colonial Revival's, charming bungalows, and vernacular cottages are delightful to walk through. The downtown offers great shopping and dining, and you can't beat the amazing variation of architecture.
Here are a few photos I snapped while there:

Salisbury also has one of the best custom brick manufacturers in the country--making bricks the old-fashioned way--by throwing them into wooden molds before the firing process. The Old Carolina Brick Company, producers of fine handmade brick, has a variety of brick colors and patterns but can also custom match the brick that you need. This is especially nice for rehabilitation or reconstruction projects.
Have any of you ever visited Salisbury or taken any day trips lately to somewhere interesting?
