Planning my scouting trip to NC. I want Greensboro to be my first stop. But where to live in downtown/center city Greensboro is the question. The problem is I don't drive. Coming to look at apartments-- The Nissan Apartments in downtown W-S and Gateway Place in Uptown Charlotte where things are fairly accessible for a non- driver. Can I get my start in Greensboro as a non-driver? Getting my license is my first priority once I relocate.

Thanks everybody

I can't remember the last time I went downtown. I rarely have a reason to go there. Sorry!

I'm fairly new to Greensboro, and I'm not impressed at all by downtown. It seems that the downtown is small, and I wouldn't think it would be a place you'd want to live without a car.

hmmm, Your best bet would be Charlotte. Uptown is growing like a weed right now. People are also moving uptown to Charlotte like crazy. Charlotte does lack apartments uptown right now though. They have mostly condos...maybe you can rent those though, or maybe a house on the edge...

There is not much in downtown greensboro right now. This will change in the future though.

Downtown Raleigh has more to offer than G'boro as well.

Good luck!

I agree with Beffrey2, Charlotte would be a much better choice if you want the "big city", urban feel. LOTS to do. Good luck!!!

Default Downtown Greensboro

ToUSAGirl....Greensboro just built a huge minor league baseball stadium. It is now the centerpiece of revitalization of the downtown. More housing is available downtown but I think most residents there really don't feel a need to live in downtown Greensboro as of now. The problem? All around the downtown there are some really run-down areas that aren't too attractive.
Visit Greensboro and decide if downtown is for you. The area is a beautiful place to live, but downtown is not on my list of favorites. If you like downtown living, visit Charlotte, that city is becoming New York City 2.
Good Luck.

For apartments (rentals) downtown, check out Greensboro Lofts.

There are a bunch of condos, etc. downtown, along with single family houses in Fisher Park and Southside.

But without a drivers license, be prepared to eat out a lot - there are no grocery stores in walking distances (though several restaurants and bars).

Generally speaking, Greensboro is not that easy to get around if you don't drive. With that said, there are plenty of apartments you'd like on Elm street downtown or even in Fisher Park with is within walking distance. Good luck.
