Can anyone help me figure out what's what's with neighborhoods in Greensboro and Winston-Salem? Prefer safer neighborhood (have toddler), older houses that don't need a full gut rehab.
Thanks for your assistance!

Back to the subject at hand, without being vague

For example, the north side of Greensboro versus the west side? Street parameters of where the not so hot areas are? Some places are block to block, while others have pretty clearly defined neighborhoods and distinct safer areas and then the not so hot ones.

Thanks!

Price range?
School preference (public/private? Already have one in mind?)?
Anything you want to be near or far from?

Public school, not the ultra violent ones. (Ohio there are some "special" areas of public school) We're pretty flexible. It all has to do with having access to UNCG and uncsa, and Whole Foods and Fresh Market
Don't need an expensive house, planning to rent. Just want a good neighborhood. I like it better when I can cook and have neighbors over, say hey and hang out, and eat and shoot the breeze. And hopefully some sweet little kids for my daughter to befriend.
Thanks for your two cents!

I had to chime in - this thread made me laugh (the sexist comment!). I think you're thinking about some older neighborhoods like you find close to downtown. Some of the homes are beautifully renovated despite being built in the 1930's & 40's. Others - not so much. Oh, I see you're looking to rent - I'd need to know more about your price range and square footage requirements to speak very intelligently about any suggestions. Some places that come to mind are Garden Homes and Dellwood for some 3/2 and about 1200-1300 SF. Adams Farm is nice too - newer homes with more space (more expensive rentals than the neighborhoods I mentioned). Good luck, and try not be so vague anymore

As a parent of a toddler myself, I've found schools around here to be a HUGE issue. In general the Guilford County Elementary schools are aweful, but there are exceptions, whereever you are looking, make sure you check out NC School Report Cards or GreatSchools - Public and Private School Ratings, Reviews and Parent Community so that you can see the schools you would be moving into. Again, as a generality, the Kernersville schools tend to be better than the rest of Forsyth county; In Guilford County, avoid downtown schools in High Point & Greensboro, stay to the northwest (Oak Ridge or Summerfield) or southeast of the county (Pleasant Garden area); or look in Davidson County if a slightly longer commute to Greensboro or Winston is not a problem. Just make sure you do your research before deciding because the difference between some schools is absolutely amazing.
