Welcome to The Ingles Open Road
Thanks for stopping by. This 3-minute show is a gift from Ingles to the communities they call home. It’s a chance to discover the very best of what our beautiful towns have to offer. Here you’ll find a little bit of everything… charming small towns, exciting urban adventure, mountaintop experiences, fascinating museums, and interesting activities you’ll want to try for yourself. This is a great place to discover that awesome new day trip, or that amazing activity in your own backyard.

The car. We get a lot of questions about Chris’ car. It’s a 1966 Ford Mustang convertible. It’s “Signal Flare” red with black interior. It’s an automatic “straight 6”. And Chris’ daughter has named it, “Lightning”.
