Hi all,

I am from out-of-state and will be taking a temporary position in the Greensboro/High Point area for the next 2 months.

Housing is provided, but I will have to commute from Greensboro to High Point in the morning (around 7 am), and make the reverse trip in the afternoon (around 5-6 pm). How bad is traffic on I40/I85 at those hours, and are there alternate routes? Google Maps give me a distance of 18 miles and an estimate of 30 mins. Is that realistic?

Thank you for any info you can provide.

I always go from Greensboro to High Point on 68. Where is your hotel?

The interstate is always busy, but, unless there's a wreck, 30 minted sounds about right.

Sue, thanks. I will be staying near Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro, and will be working near High Point Regional Hospital. Is 68 a better choice than the interstate?

Traffic wise, I think so. Look at it Google maps and see what you think. Wendover Avenue between Spring Garden is busy all the time. You could take Wendover to Benjamin, which turns into Bryan Boulevard to 68. It's much less crowded. Try both and see which works better for you.

Sue, thank you very much for your advice. I will be starting the job in about 2 weeks, (on 8/3) and will let you know how it goes. Take care.

I'll bite (pardon the pun!). I am an adventurous eater and love "hole-in-the-wall" places that serve good food. Can you recommend any? The cuisine is not important, I have traveled a lot (overseas, too) and will try just about anything.

Good recs.

There is a sizable Vietnamese population here. Saigon is the best for Bahn Mi. Pho Vien and Bin Minh are great for pho.

I like Lucky 32 a lot. Printworks at Proximity Hotel is really nice. So is Gia. Both have half price bottles of wine on Wednesday nights, woohoo.

Coliseum Cafe is a great meat and three. Hop's Burger Bar rivals Emma Key's. I can't decide which I like better.

Start with those!
