Hi everyone, I've read through many of the threads regarding a relocation to the area as well as specific information regarding the neighborhoods/towns. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I'm a 52yo GWM currently living in the Orlando area and have lived here this time around since the end of 2010 due to my Mom's illness (stroke) and and unfortunately passing away last April. I'm almost settled with the estate and can't wait to get the heck out of here. I've lived in FL (native), DC, Philadelphia and NC (Triangle area) and I'm attracted to Greensboro-Winston-Salem for it's culture, topography and cost of living. I'm looking for neighborhoods where there are a good mix of people versus all families and where being gay won't be a big deal (i.e. somewhat progressive) and convenient to restaurants/shops. Gay bars aren't really a factor any longer (been there, done that) and prefer instead to meet friends out at restaurants, enjoy outdoor activities, and invite friends/neighbors over for dinner and bbqs. I guess my question what neighborhoods are the most welcoming in terms of someone like myself moving in and being able to mesh with the community? My price range is up to 225K for 3/2, though I would prefer something that needs some work and where I can build some equity. I tend to favor older construction (established neighborhoods with 50s all-brick ranches, bungalows and cape cods for instance) versus cookie-cutter newer.

There are plenty of older homes in W-S with character.

Thanks....I know many recommend the Ardmore neighborhood from what I've seen online, any others?

May be able to help you or at least steer you in the right direction. Just asked for your 'friend request', but not sure how that works on this site.
