Surry County/Yadkin Valley, NC, received great news on May 22, 2020, when N.C. Governor Roy Cooper moved the state into Phase 2 of his three-phased approach to lift restrictions and reopen the state for business.
We are pleased to welcome visitors back to Surry County and the Yadkin Valley! Most, but not all, wineries, breweries, parks, attractions, restaurants and accommodations have reopened, or will do so in the near future. Tourism is a vital part of our economy and we hope people will return to our beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Like other NC destinations, we ask visitors to practice safe measures when in public spaces, including the Three Ws: wait six feet apart, wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds (or use hand sanitizer), and wear a cloth face covering. Also, refrain from venturing into public places if experiencing a fever or signs of illness.
The visitor experience may be a bit different from place to place. Each winery, attraction and business has implemented protocols to provide a positive guest experience while being mindful of employee safety and overall public health. Please be patient. These protocols require an extra bit of effort by both employees and guests.
If you are not yet comfortable returning to travel, feel free to use this website as a guide for ideas or trips in the future.
