We're moving to Greensboro, NC from Omaha Ne in a couple of months and I was wondering if anyone can help us find a good neighborhood, we're researching but I'd love to get some input on people who alredy live there. I am looking for a family friendly neighborhood that have couples with young kids. We have a 5 and a 3 year old and I'd love for them to have neighbors to play with. I am also looking for a neighborhood near a catholic church and I am looking for a good catholic school, I was only able to find St. Pius and Our Lady of Grace and we'll probably move around that area but not sure how the neighborhoods are. Were we are right now here in omaha is very nice, clean and quite still walking distance to stores, the park, we're a convenient location and i would love to find a home that has parks and nearby stores. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Jacky

The neighborhood around OLG (our lady of grace) is called Sunset Hills. It's an older neighborhood with a mix of ages. It's pretty close to Friendly Shopping Center. (The best center in the city). It's "in the city", so there is some crime in this area, but its mostly property crime (burglary). There is also a park nearby.(Lindley Park)

Sunset Hills is a pretty nice neighborhood. They are known for their "light balls" in the trees Christmas decorations.
They get together to make them and put them up. There is a 5k run/walk near Christmas where people walk/run under the lights (running of the balls). They claim it's the largest display on the east coast!!!

St.Pauls (Corner of Horse Pen Creek and New Garden), is close to neighborhoods off of Horsepen Creek. This is close to shopping on New Garden, and it's also close to lots of shopping. It does not have a school though.

I think this side of the city is safer than the area around St.Pius.


For what you want, I'd look at Sunset Hills, and points further west off of Friendly. Hamilton Forest is very nice.
Neighborhoods around West Friendly, Westridge Road, etc.. There are small playgrounds in a lot of these neighborhoods, and you are close to shopping and OLG. (hint...being on the west side of Friendly shopping center will be safer crime wise...)

You never said what your price range was....and that will partly determine where you can buy. But remember, the traffic in this area is not bad, if you were to draw a 15 minutes commuting circle from OLG, you'd have a pretty large selection of neighborhoods.

Welcome!!! You are going to love the seasons here...we are having an incredible fall. It was in the 80s this weekend, and the leaves are awesome.
