Looking for small town life, affordable older house yet within an hour or less of a big city. Any folks here have any thoughts on either of these two towns?
Oh, and no, I am not trying to recreate the Andy Griffith Show!

Thank you!

Also, sorry to add to the list... what is life like in and around Winston-Salem: housing, car rides, bike rides, commutes into downtown and to Wake Forest Baptist hospital, etc?

Any neighborhoods to avoid (and why), any preferred neighborhoods (and why)?

Thanks much!

Where are you working? Mt. Airy is a decent small town. Pilot Mountain is tiny. W-S has plenty of nice neighborhoods and smaller towns closer than Mt. Airy.

I don't really know anything about Pinnacle (other than that it's near Pilot Mountain State Park), but Siloam is very rural. It's not really a town, per se. There's a post office and one small store and that's about it. We have friends who live on some stunning land out that way. They love it, but they don't mind traveling a bit to shop/work/eat/etc.

I grew up in pilot and it's a very small town. Pretty much my child hood consisted of us driving to winston Salem on weekends to shop and dine out . And mt airy, it reallly needs to find a niche other then Andy Griffith. The coming generations won't know who or what that show is or even care for it to see a town immersed in it. I do see they are trying ad some craft breweries into the mix , But knowing trends come and go, I'm really interested in seeing how the craft trend will play out in years to come. I wonder if we will look back and say "remember when every st corner had a brewery" .. anyway I'd really look for towns that are more closer to Winston. Perhaps rural Hall area or King...

Thank you for the replies.

At this point it would be looking like my wife, an RN, would be at Wake Forest Baptist... so, any recommendations on neighborhoods in W-S?

For W-S info, you probably ought to start a new thread since this one is titled Mount Airy & Pilot Mtn.

W-S is great small city. I love it!

The Ardmore area is nice. Also neighborhoods around Reynolda Rd. are nice. Don't discount the burbs like Clemmons and Kernersville. Someone mentioned King or Rural Hall if you don't want the traffic in the city and/or the burbs.
