^ Yep, Washington Park is a great area--beautiful old houses with very unique architecture. There have been quite a lot of renovations there in the past several years despite the down economy.

Close to shopping is okay...do not really wish to be close to any schools, thus not needing to worry about that aspect. We like to do things...museums, galleires, movies...but do not mind a drive. Not a big fan of traffic, however there are always side streets. Love trees and hills and such (moving from Asheville, NC after 7 years).

Know all about Greensboro, but it is a bit too far from where we will be working, thus looking at Winston-Salem and maybe, Kernersville (like that size town).

Saw this web-site and just thought we would ask from folk in Winston-Salem area. We will be renters for a while, until the roots have set in and just want to be sure we choose wisely. All input will be appreciated, including where to look and where to not look. Thank you.
Your better off in Asheville.

OP, wondering why you are leaving Asheville? I'm in a similar situation, mid-50's, can work anywhere being an RN, looking at all the magnet hospitals in NC, love the mountains, love the coast, looking for quiet, peaceful, yet close enough to bigger cities to work. Not interested in Charlotte of Raleigh (too big). Coming from a "city" of 15K, so want bigger than that for sure. Not interested in schools, been there, done that. Looking for 2+acres, but will probably rent before buying, like you. If you found an area, would you share it? Anyone have recommendations? Asheville was a consideration, as is Hickory, Wilmington, even Charleston SC. Moving from western NY, where the skies are constantly gray and taxes are ridiculously high. Any ideas are are welcome.

We moved from upstate NY in 2005 to NC.
We are considering leaving the Wilmington area due to lack of employment opportunities-
It's more of a retirement area and there is a steady stream of new transplants with more employees than jobs available=low wages.
How is the job market in the Winston-Salem area?

The job market questions (EVERYWHERE) start with what skills you have.

If you can do what's needed and especially if that is unusual or specialized...
then you might be able to stand out from the people already there and looking.
