-Where is the best place to live considering Volvo's location? Highland Park neighborhood or Lindley Park neighborhood in Greensboro.
-Do I need a car? YES!
-Is is a young city? 5 Colleges brings in a lot of young people. It does not feel it a young city too me. Lots of boomers here too.
-Will I get bored? Probably.

Greensboro is boring if you come from a big city and are looking for clubs, night life, transportation without a car, singles, etc.

Greensboro is fine if you prefer a "young family" atmosphere, soccer for kids, no traffic congestion and an ice cream festival once a year.

It is affordable, but not as inexpensive as you would expect for a smaller town.

I've been here 10 years and came from a large, liberal, vibrant and diverse city. I have not adjusted well (maybe just me), as I prefer more of a real city culture, nightlife, better shopping, fashion, etc.

My college kids at UNC and UNCC would NEVER come back to live in Greensboro. They say it is too quiet and boring. They had fun here while in middle/high school. The people are nice and I cannot complain about my kids growing up here. But for 20 somethings and "young" empty nesters it is not the ideal place, in my opinion.

(This is an old post, recently revived, therefore I'm not answering the Volvo Relo's question about standard of living and best area of Greensboro to live)

If you are coming from major city then I would suggest going to Charlotte or living on the out skirts of Charlotte its not that bad of a drive about an hour and a half I would only suggest that IF you have a flexible schedule so you dont wear yourself out with gas mileage. Charlotte has a lot to offer its a young city with BIG city amminities and pro football pro basketball and NASCAR. If you stay in the Charlotte area you would most likely only have to use your car just for going to work. Charlotte has a really nice brand new transit system. 8 malls to choose from TONS of bars to choose from!

Actually not everyone moving from a big city is looking for clubs, night life, mass transit and lots of singles. Many people moving away from a big city are looking for places where it's not wild and crazy 24/7. After having lived in a big cities for almost 20 years, I've had it and I look forward to clean air, a lack of congestion, peace/quiet and friendly people. If I want to get wild/crazy every now and then, I'll travel to South Beach or NYC to scratch the itch.

I am thinking of moving to the Greensboro area; Kirkland, Old Irving to be exact. I am close to retiring and want peace and quiet. I also want little to no crime and nice neighbors. I am moving from a small town in California near the bay area. I don't like it here. I don't like the people, the drugs, the gangs or the ultra "in your face" liberalism. I really just want to settle down to a peaceful life and have neighbors that take care of their homes. Maybe go to a museum from time to time.....Can anyone tell me what these areas are like? Or maybe suggest an area.
