Good evening all,

I understand these threads are a dime a dozen but I honestly don't know where to start. My mother is relocating to Winston-Salem, from a very big midwestern college town. It has been a really quick turn around, so much so that she has had 1.5 weeks to relocate. I am inquiring about neighborhoods that would be appropriate for a professor in her 50's without an active social life, with little crime and commute to the uni. I also would like to know some approximate distances and neighborhoods/bars that millennials hang out at, for when I visit her.

Best.

Then Mom is looking to RENT only... right?

You can't swing a dead cat in Winston and not hit that target. Really.

However, the top of the looking list starts the same as most threads:
West End and Ardmore and Washington Park.
From there the list trends out to the 'burbs.

Attached is a screenshot with the basic apartment choices (there are many more).
No judgments on "best" as I have no real experience of them.

Is she working at Wake? Are there any faculty apartments available? They are pretty nice and she can walk to work.

She is working at wake forest, I think she would fare well with a more stable rent situation that almost mirrors a condo. Honestly, you guys have already answered my questions, Ill be calling places, for her, this week. Thank you!

I used to work at Wake Forest. They have faculty/staff housing on campus, as well.

Your mother should look in the Sherwood Forest neighborhood and you should head downtown.

Since housing is covered, I'll jump in to say that there's no shortage of spots for you to hang out.

Here are some decent places to start:
Krankies Coffee, Hoots Bar, The Porch, Crafted, Foothills, Single Brothers, Recreation Billiards

There are lots more. Your best areas would be downtown (along 4th St and up Trade St), and in the West End, but if you chat a few folks up at some of those spots I mentioned, they can give you more recommendations.
