Thumbs up Winston-Salem is a Kept Secret

The people are so embracing here, and everything works so well, that you will love it. Where are you moving from?

I'd like to know more about the Elizabeth City, Edenton and Ahoskie areas. Do these areas tend to flood? Are these considered "small towns"? I would like to be in an area where I know my neighbors well enough for the kids to play together and maybe hang out on occasion, but not so picky and nosey that I have to play twenty questions everytime I pull in the driveway. How are the middle schools?

Any info would be appreciated, My son and I could really use the input.

Default Toria/gmb

you probably want to look North of Greensboro in the Summerfield, Stokesdale, Rockingham County area
especially if you have horses, lots of open land, less expensive than Greensboro or Winston, no huge factories blowing smoke,
Country peaceful living, far enough to comfortable, yet close to everything to be convenient and close enough to the big cities that if you get a taste for a littler wilder life it's just 30 minutes down the road
I can provide a little more detail through PM if you require it

My family lives in Winston (North Carolinians call it "Winston"). Winston-Salem has the second best skyline in NC, behind only Charlotte, largely because it was or is the headquarters for some major corporations like RJ Reynolds, Wachovia, and BB&T. Winston-Salem's proximity to the mountains is a plus, providing glimpses of the mountains on clear days. Also, you get more snow in Winston-Salem than in Charlotte or Raleigh, which I like. However, the Triad is culturally more conservative than Raleigh-Durham, which is a major negative to me. It is not the type of place progressives or young hip people flock too, which has meant I had to move away to DC. If they can attract a younger, hipper, more progressive group of people, Winston would be a very nice place to live.

I feel the same as Tarheelhombre about Winston Salem...with the exception of progressives. I had to move away to get more of the big city amenities and lifestyle, but W-S offers a good bit in the way of arts, entertainment, and sports with Wake Forest. There is a large arts community there which makes the atmosphere somewhat more progressive than many other cities it's size.

Default Fed X Hub

I expect when the Fed X Hub hits the Greensboro airport in 2009, you'll see another meaning for the word progressive

Mocksville - (Davie County) has that old time feel. Still has the downtown courthouse square, gas lamps, sidewalks. Kernersville (between W/S & GSO), Summerfield, and if you can stand the constant "Mayberry" references, try Mt. Airy.
