Currently I am living in Asheville and considering a move to Rockingham County..(possible job). As I just moved to Asheville in august, I am not very familiar with NC at all and was wondering about the county and where a good place to live. According to my research, it is MUCH cheaper in the WS and Greensboro area than Asheville.

I am highly considering Eden, not to small, not to big, things to do. Mayodan is also a possiblity. I will only move if i get the job, if I do my g/f will have to leave her job (along with breaking our lease in asheville), so it might be a difficult decision.

Any information you all have on Eden would be greatly appreciated. THe only worry I can see on the town is the crime rate, a bit higher than I would like but not that worried.

Any of the alternatives you mentioned are going to be boring compared to Asheville IMHO.

If you are happy with the quality of life in Asheville, you will be disappointed. If you like small town living, Eden or Mayodan might work for you. Rockingham County has seen a LOT of manufacturing job losses over the past 10-12 years. The economy there is probably quite a bit more depressed than NC in general. Greensboro is closest community with interesting restaurants, shopping, and cultural events. Unless the new job opportunity is fabulous, think long and hard about making the change. Just my opinion... and I always keep an open mind about small-town North Carolina.

I concur with the other two. If you are looking for a lifestyle similar to what you have in Asheville any city in Rockingham county is going to be a jolt.

One more thought... you could always live in Greensboro and commute to the job. However, I have found that it's difficult to ever become part of either community when you commute like that.

I meant to say, "and I LOVE small-town North Carolina."
