What are the pros and cons for each? we are looking into renting first, we have a 2 years old and a 5 years old...so good schools/daycares are our priority number one...love to meet other families and do a bunch of kids activities...not looking for quiet neighborhood!
Please help us with any input...we are in NY and are supposed to move there the first week of Nov!

We're new to the area...welcome!

We love the area. Not a ton of kids in our neighborhood (near Wallburg) though. Kernersville would put you close to either city. But I can't give recommendations for specific areas.

I think the two cities are more similar than not. Both have great neighborhoods, some not-so-great neighborhoods, great schools, not-so-great schools, etc. Shopping/restaurants/things to do are pretty similar, and it's nice that they are close enough that you can enjoy the amenities of both. So the pros and cons are probably about the same for both. I think Winston has a little more character and historic charm (just my opinion), but Greensboro has lots of that too.

We might could help you better if you give us a little more info--will you be working in one city or the other? Do you prefer to live in the city, a suburb, or a rural area? Etc.

Thank you both for the responses...So I really don't like rural!!! I would love to live somewhere where everything is a walking distance but I can settle with suburbs not too far from parks..shops/groceries/kid activities/gym...
I work from home and my husband got a job in Winston salem but will be traveling most of the time (60 miles radius)...so we are not really restricted to stay in W-S although I liked that "arbyunc" said it has more character!
My dream is to live in a neighborhood where the kids can play outside with the neighbors I know i can dream... like I said i have 2 years old that will have to go to a daycare hopefully not too far...a 5years old that started KG

Thank you so much for the input!

lol, ok.
Though I am a Yankee...I just try to keep it quiet (unless I'm looking for NY-style pizza). I certainly don't miss the NY winters.
