A longtime dream of Take a Break from the Interstate founder, D.W. Miles, the U.S. 21 Road Market celebrated its inaugural season last year with a three-day sale spanning more than 70 miles. Intended to spur economic activity along Historic U.S. Route 21, the road market is a multi-state cooperative endeavor. In its first year, the market received national attention and is credited for driving thousands of motorists into the participating communities along U.S. Route 21. This year, the road market has expanded to include more than 110 miles of U.S. 21, stretching from Harmony, North Carolina, to Wytheville, Virginia.
