Looking to relocate from Asheville to the Winston/Greensboro area...
Single, female, 20-something.

Hoping for a city with a little history to it. Also, I won't know any one in the area so I'm curious which place might have a better downtown scene, or be easier to meet people??

I have a dog (30 lbs.) so I would prefer to rent a single family home with a yard, instead of an apartment.

And with that being said.. I'm curious which city, if either, is more dog-friendly?

Looking for advice about which city may be more suitable.. Winston or Greensboro

Thank you for any help!!

They are very similar places. Both have revitalized their downtowns, they are similar in size, have dog parks, etc. I would probably give a slight edge to W-S as I think its downtown is a little better and has a more history, especially Old Salem.

It seems there's a little bit more housing available in Winston as far as what I'm seeking
I found something right near Reynolds Park, about 9 minutes from downtown

What might be a better area to look at?

Also... I guess I've put the cart before the horse. Should have asked which location would have the better job market... winston or greensboro

Better job market? I'd say they are about equal. What kind of work do you do?

In Winston, look at Ardmore and West End neighborhoods if you want to be close to downtown. Sherwood Forest and surrounding ares if you want to be a bit further out, and Clemmons and Lewisville if you want to be out in the burbs. The closer in neighborhoods will be more conducive to meeting people your own age.

I have worked at a high-end country club recently. While living in NYC I was working in public relations... which is what I would really like to get back to.

The job market in Asheville isn't really conducive to more media-centric career fields, which is why I'm looking to move elsewhere

Again, both cities are about equal. There are some fairly significant consumer products companies in both cities, VF, Reynolds Tobacco, Hanes Brands, Garner Foods, etc. that create demand for PR, marketing etc.

I am interested in this thread as I am an artist and art teacher. I also have a big dog and cats. I am interested in finding a nice neighborhood in the city or a country home or mobile home n private property ( an acre or less ) with 2 or more bedrooms. Could you recommend some neighborhoods or small towns that are a 20-30 minute drive to town in the triad or triangle area?
