I have read some of the posts and had a few thoughts/questions. Okay, so maybe parts of high point are blighted. Are there any nice places to live around the high point area? I'm considering moving there for a job, and I'm willing to commute, but I don't care to live in a high crime area. My experience has been that every town has it's good and bad areas. I currently live in Gastona, NC it's about the same size as high point. Crime overall is high but it's more localized to certain areas and mainly apartment complexes. Anyhow, if you commute can you find a decent neighborhood where you feel safe? Also, how's the traffic in high point.

I suggest looking outside Guilford County. Try Randolph or Davidson County. I personally would not live inside the city limits due to taxes and crime. Traffic during the furniture market in horrible. There is no where to shop in High Point. The mall is a joke, stores moving out , down town (Main Street) is nothing. No really good places to eat (Maybe Bruster's ice cream on Main and Westchester). High Point will cut down a 50 year old tree to put a puny little sapling in. "Strip Malls" everywhere.. half empty. Sorry to sound so negative here, but I grew up in the area and left 2 years ago to come to Iowa. I will never move back to the High Point area.
