We're looking to move to North Carolina and are trying to narrow down towns that will be a match. We are looking for family friendly areas with young families in the Triad region. Not too city, not too country. Any recommendations would help!!

Thanks!!

Kernersville, Clemmons, Lewisville, Jamestown are good places to start.

And Oak Ridge, Summerfield and Wallburg. You shouldn't rule out Greensboro and Winston-Salem. They are very nice medium sized cities with great neighborhoods.

All good suggestions...most suburbs fit the bill of "not too city, not too country". Those are some of the best in the Triad, along with the ones Exclt mentioned. There are LOTS of neighborhoods within the city limits of GSO and W-S that feel suburban too, so I would rule those out. In W-S, the Robin Hood Rd. and Country Club Rd. areas are very nice and suburban.

Not sure where you are moving from, as that would answer what you think of as "city." A friend from New Jersey once referred to Greensboro as a "small town." She actually did not know it was considered a city.

Greensboro is about 200,000 people and has a very small downtown "city" area. Most of it is comprised of smaller neighborhoods but is still very connected.

All of the places mentioned above are certainly smaller places that are still connected well to the rest of the Triad.

I have lived in Jamestown, and it does make for a nice family area with two main elementary school areas and a small but fun little downtown area.

There are just tons of areas that feel "away from the city" but aren't just out in the country.

Do you know where you might be employed? That will make a huge difference in what areas you'd want to start with. Also, if you have a housing budget that would tell us more about where might be a good fit.

Your data is a bit off, it's much closer to 300k than 200k.
