Treat yourself to shopping, tours, and tastings!
Create your own unique weekend experience in the Smithfield area, including outlet shopping at Carolina Premium Outlets and a stop at DeWayne’s for sure! Visit Downtown Smithfield for a visit to the Ava Gardner Museum, a stroll along the Neuse River Walk, and some local shopping and lunch. After a full day, drop by Hinnant Vineyards for a tasting if you are a wine drinker, or Double Barley Brewing if you love craft beer.
While exploring Smithfield, check out the events calendar for music, art, food festivals and other fun activities or choose one of our trails for more exploring.
Bring the family...
For a fun weekend for the whole family (and your dog, too), stay in the Smithfield area and embark on a History Trail throughout Johnston County, or enjoy some On Farm Fun with tours, picking seasonal produce or special events, or get lots of fresh air with a day at Howell Woods Environmental Learning Center -- where everyone will love the birds of prey, boardwalk trails, and reptile exhibits!
Travelers along I-95 will find an abundance of hotels located at Exit 95, (on I-95 -- very easy to remember). Several of our hotels are participants in the Girls Weekend and Sip and Stay Packages -- so make it a weekend getaway to Smithfield, NC.
