My wife and I are looking to relocate to the Triad area and open a chiropractic wellness center. It will be family-oriented and will offer nutritional and detox protocols as well for our patients.

We are both in our mid 20's and are not quite ready to start a family so we would like a place with a good downtown scene and a diverse arts scene (arts, theater, music).

Business-wise, we are looking for areas mainly with new growth and younger families. We also would like to be close to a mall that sees good amounts of traffic.

Greensboro ranks top on our list right now, but we are unfamiliar with where the newer developments are and areas around the Triad. ANY advice would be greatly appreciated!

As you know, the Triad is composed of Winston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point. They all have at least one mall, but I'd immediately strike High Point from the list because it has no downtown scene and its Oak Hollow Mall is fledgling and barely sees traffic. Winston has one mall (Hanes Mall) and GSO has two (Friendly Center, and Four Seasons).

Both Winston and Greensboro have 1st Fridays with galleries showcasing the work of local artists. From what I hear, Winston is more where artsy, and GSO gets more touring bands. GSO is where you want to be if you're single and looking (Winston has Wake and the serious med students who don't go out, haha, and GSO has Guilford College, UNC-G). Winston is closer to the mountains (Pilot Mountain, Asheville) and has lower taxes. GSO is closer to the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) and the beach (Myrtle Beach, Wilmington). GSO also has the airport. Both have their fair share of good restaurants.

The city of Kernersville is right smack in the middle of the Triad. While it doesn't have a mall, an arts scene or a music scene, it's close to everything. It's considered up-and-coming by Triad locals because it has grown a lot in the past decade, while still maintaining a small town feel. It's very family-oriented, without being Pleasantville-ish. The best thing about living in Kernersville is that we can drive 15 mins to Greensboro one day, and 15 mins to Winston the next day.

The two cities you speak of are only 30 minutes away from each other, and who knows, eventually, they may grow into one city (kind of like Winston and Salem). I suggest you come to the area and check them both out. Good luck with your decision!
