50+ professional woman who is looking to move with best friend from New England to the Greensboro/Winston-Salem area of NC. We are curious to learn which areas are nicer than others. Thanks in advance for any insight you can offer!

ooohhhhhh it's so nice here. You won't miss the winters at all.
What sort of home are you looking for? Because that will definitely impact where you will be living. City/County? Older/newer? Garage?
Older neighborhoods are my favorites- tree lined streets, homes with character, sidewalks, little things like that.
Let me know if I can help!

Hello. I want to move to NC within the next 3 months. I went to visit my daughter in Fayetteville, and that city is not for me. I want a quieter place, closer to the mountains--not the Coast--but need to be within 30 min of a fairly large city (for jobs). I was recommended "Linden", Stedman, Eastover, Southern Pines, Sanford... I would like to hear from people who live there! Keep in mind I am 47 yrs old, and an average blue collar worker. I need to find very affordable housing (an apartment or house to rent) and one person living with me might rely on public transportation.
Please help. Unfortunately, my trip to Fayetteville was just that---I did NOT get to venture out and look at these cities. Long story!
I really appreciate any help/advise. Thank you.

Sanford is a nice central option for those looking for a small town feel, with mid-sized city services/features.

Here's a recent post I made about Sanford:

Good luck!

I second that. Fisher Park in Greensboro is an old inner-ring neighborhood with tree lined streets, nice historical homes with character and sidewalks. It's a very nice area Link: Home
There are lots of nice areas in west/northwest Greensboro along Battleground Avenue, New Garden Road, Holden, Hobbs, West Friendly, etc. Those areas are the more expensive parts of town though...

Linden, Stedman, Eastover, Southern Pines and Sanford are all in the sandhills of NC; they are closer to the beach than the mountains. Sanford is the most centrally located of those towns. Winston-Salem is in the foothills of the western Piedmont and close to Pilot Mountain/Hanging Rock/Sauratown Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains. W-S is one of NC's "big 5" cities. Clemmons is a smallish town west of Winston-Salem that would fit you. There are small towns all over NC, it just depends on what you are looking for and want.

One word: Liberty

It doesn't get more upscale and hip than Liberty.... We even have a grocery store.
