We might be looking at a possible move to Winston-Salem. The job would be on the north side of WS. We love south Charlotte and wonder if there's an area of WS that would be similar, especially to the Marvin area in Union County or the Ballantyne area.

Hi zammaz,
I moved here from south Charlotte, but that was 18 years ago. Both places have changed considerably since then! But overall I think you'll find the lifestyle of both areas to be similar. You'll find that it's much easier and more convenient to get around in Winston-Salem, as the traffic pales in comparison to just about any area in Charlotte. So that's a big plus. Winston and the surrounding area offer many of the same amenities as Charlotte, as well as some things you won't find there. Of course it's smaller, so we don't have the volume of restaurants, shopping, etc., but I think the quality of the offerings here stand up very well.

What I like about Winston-Salem is that it is currently the size Charlotte was when I first moved there 20+ years ago (about 220,000).

For me, that's the perfect size for a city - big enough to have good hospitals, retail, restaurants but not the major congestion or density of people

In the city itself I like the Sherwood Forest area. Once you leave the city limits heading north I really like the countryside around Rural Hall and King. But to find something more like what are used to in Union County I think you may want to look southwest of W-S in Clemmons (look at homes in Bermuda Run).
