Here are a few recommendations for a trip to Greensboro that I think would fit what you are looking for:

-Eat at the Iron Hen and take a walk thru Fisher Park. The restaurant is basically at the entrance to the neighborhood, its a neat eatery (particularly for brunch but good for all meals) and there may be some good homes in your price range.

-Take a walk around Guilford National Military Park, its about 10 minutes Northwest of downtown.

-Checkout Elsewhere on Elm Street, quirky art cooperative and stop into one of the breweries--Natty Greenes, Gibbs Hundred, and Preyer are all downtown and would make good stops. Or stop at Green Bean if you are more of a coffee drinker.

-You might also check out the Shops at Friendly Center and Sunset Hills for another neighborhood to look at houses

Quite frankly, Greensboro has a lot of sprawl as well as a lot of places of character.

And yes, things tend to shut down during winter storms, but that's because we don't have the equipment to plow/salt/sand every street quickly enough to keep up. Usually warmer weather rolls in within a day or two and helps take care of a lot of that.

Which is not to say you can't find snow if you want it. Just an hour and a half west of the Triad, you get into mountains that get 35-50 inches a year.
Although this has greatly improved over the last twenty years. I think the state realized if we are going to be an economic player then the state can't shut down and wait for the snow to melt.

Just wanted to say thank you again - we are heading out to visit next week, so I'm jotting all of this down.
