Clemmons is growing along the Hwy 58 corridor that runs into Winston-Salem, going past the Hanes Mall area (you'll definitely fulfill your shopping needs there. Oy, the Hanes Mall area is exploding ). There are a number of new subdivisions, priced from the low 100s and up. You'd want to work with a realtor on that. Crime: I read the Winston-Salem paper daily (online version: removed) which covers Clemmons/Lewisville/etc news. I've never noted anything dramatic

Clemmons is not demarcated from W-S if you are thinking it is a separate town. Like all growing areas, it, along with Lewisville, is gradually melding into W-S proper. It is an area that offers a lot of family oriented attractions:
Olde Salem http://www.oldsalem.org/
Tanglewood http://www.forsyth.cc/tanglewood/ (broken link)
Dixie Classic Fair http://www.dcfair.com/
Reynolda House http://www.reynoldahouse.org/index.php

The W-S area is growing; it hasn't (and hopefully won't) reach the proportions of the other exploding areas; right now it offers schools, real estate, shopping, etc, without the horrible congestion of the other cities in NC.

<waits for Jas to show up and talk about the Triad area >

I have a bias: you couldn't get me near the Charlotte/Raleigh area with a 10 foot pole. Those big cities are an anethama to us . However, we live outside W-S, Spouse has a job with Wachovia and I work in Salisbury. We've enjoyed the area very much over the last 10 years we've been here.

I just saw the bat-signal in the sky -- someone must be talking about the Triad!

You may want to check out the archived pages - there are probably a couple of posts about the area.

Here is my Cliff-notes version...
Triad = nice to live there, but I wouldn't want to visit
Triangle & Charlotte = land of the sprawl

You can click on my name and look at my post history for some comments - any other questions, let me know.

Brain cloud That's supposed to be 158. 58 runs east-west across southern Virginia. 158 starts in Mocksville, merges briefly with Business 40 in W-S, and then splits and continues to the coast.

Don't know a whole lot about the Winston-Salem area, but the first place I thought of was Welcome. King also, but I'm not sure if it's more than an hour from Winston or not.
