We are moving to the Greensboro area from Philly in June after my daughter graduates from high school, she is 18 years old and is constantly complaining that she will have no friends and be bored because she is new to the area. Can someone please educate me about the social scene in Greensboro or in driving distance of, so that we can enlighten her that there is a life outside of Philadelphia. Also please inform me of the areas that she should avoid. Thankyou kindly.

Default Gso

The downtown social scene is growing. Also, Greensboro has a few colleges and universities that would have a lot of events for kids her age (UNCG, NC A&T, Guilford College, GSO College).

At 18, it would be tough moving anywhere but Greensboro would be especially tough for her because it's a lot smaller than Philly. Will she be going to school? There are some great schools in Greensboro that have great social scenes such as UNCG, Guilford College, Greensboro College, NC A&T and Bennet college. Good luck!!

I think once she is in college she will fast make friends and always have something to do. No worries.
