Farm Living: Bailey, Kenly, Wilson, Farmville, Greenville, and Tarboro Professional Review and Guide
"For this day trip, head east toward Rocky Mount, taking the exit in the direction of Wilson, forty-five minutes from Raleigh. On the way, stop off in Bailey to visit the Country Doctor Museum, then detour south for a dot of a town known as Kenly. After crossing I–95, look for the signs pointing the way to the Tobacco Farm Life Museum.
Hopefully, you’ve timed your visit so that you will arrive in Wilson for lunch at Dick’s Hot Dogs, celebrating more than eighty years in business. Spend the afternoon in Wilson before kicking up the trail dust to make way for Farmville, where you can stretch your legs and learn a bit more about farm life. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Raleigh-Durham. Each Day Trip includes, destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
