Trying to relocate to one of these communities, Lewisville, Clemmons, or Kernersville. Which are most community involved, great schools, and convenient to shopping? Which would be the best for a young family? Thanks for any advice or info you can provide.

Default Let's see

Clemmons & Lewisville are similar yet different. Lewisville has a lot of functions at their community square. You are close enough to both to enjoy each others plus. Clemmons has many different places to eat. Like golf you are close to several golf courses. You really have no need to have to run far. Great thing is you have Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes and The Mall a short drive away. Schools each has some great schools within the community. But, I look at schools as what the people do for it. People returning to support the next group to those there who support it. Like West Forsyth. You would be surprise at the number of returning alumni that come back and support the school though it's different activities. From Football to plays to chorus and band concerts. Not just those who attend that year.

Kernersville: It is a small little city. It has grown from a small town bedroom community. To a small city bedroom community. It's schools are good. As most if The local system. Not many problems. Support is more along the lines of going there now and a few years after leaving. You do have a Lowes, Walmart and a couple of other larger stores. So you could stay away from the Mall. You are closer to Greensboro. So you would love the shorter ride. There are a couple of golf course.

All three have pluses and minuses. If I was to rank them to live in. I would have to say based on activities, schools and shopping. Clemmons would have to go number one. It just has what you need without the city hassles. Lewisville would have to be second. Close to things with more community based things happening. Kernersville. I just see them as a small little city trying to get bigger. They have a lot to offer. Yet they are losing that small community feel.

All are very similar and Clemmons and Lewisville are side by side so seem almost as one. If you need to be closer to High Point or Greensboro I would say go for Kernersville, otherwise I prefer Clemmons.
