I recently moved to Kernersville and work in Greensboro. I like living in Kernersville, but if you are trying to get away from city life Greensboro is not the place. I am actually looking at moving to Johnston County near Raliegh. Love that area so much better. Greensboro has great shopping, but is too busy and since I live in Kernersville, I am either always on the highway or in Greensboro which is like the city with LONG traffic lights. The weather is great though.

Thanks for all the input. We are from NY and would love to move back, but it is too expensive for a family of four. Out here in Phx it is o.k. just cant deal with the 80 degree temps in nov. Dec-april is nice but thats it. then 80's to 90's and then come the low 100's. Plus the people here are not like the people back East. You will be lucky for someone saying thank you while you hold the door for them. And they say NY'ers are rude. Wait til you vist AZ, the place where Cali rules. Negitive or Positive feedback will help. I'll be out there in April to test, So we can visit. We would like to live near stores, malls, parks, etc...thanks again

You seem to know very little about NC, so why have you decided to move to this state? Not being rude or snarky, but usually people learn about several areas first, THEN narrow down which one they want to move to? I just can't quite imagine saying "Hey, I've decided to move to ________--now tell me about it because I don't know anything!"

Francois ......I know enough to want to move to a State, but thanks for the concern or the lack of. Like I said in my 1st post, I am coming out to NC in april. I did not want to know what you imagine saying, nor do i care.... NC Native. so keep your posts to yourself and dont waste people's time saying "Hey, I've decided to move to ________--now tell me about it because I don't know anything!" Dont really care what YOU have to say....

PowerSergNY,
As the weather goes, we do have four seasons in the Greensboro area, though it seems like summer is the longest. Summer temps in the low to mid 90s are pretty much the norm. We just had our second snowstorm this past weekend and are expecting another next weekend. This much snow is unusual. We generally have mild winters here.
I moved to Greensboro from New Jersey twenty years ago. I worked in NYC most of my life. So, it was culture shock at first, but I love the Greensboro area and would not move back up north.
There is plenty to do here and you could not ask for a nicer place to raise kids. I live in the northwest side of Greensboro, which is quite nice in every respect. Let me know if you have any more specific questions.
By the way, April is probably the best time of year to visit. The whole city will be in bloom.

Hey there Jcgso, thanks for your post. That was the kind of stuff i needed to hear. Anyone can go a weather website and get info, but since people like yourself lived there and know the seasons. it helps... We moved to AZ from NY in 06/08 and cant deal with the heat all year long, I can understand the summers here (being the southwest) but when it hits 80 in Nov, that drives me nuts. So when Sept comes around, it does not feel like football season either =( ..... Like today it was 70 degrees. nice in a way, but miss seasons. Saw all the snow you guys got....MY kids miss it too.
So NW is the nicer part of greensboro? we were also looking at kernersville.?
thanks again for everyone's time. it means a lot!

Thank you for all the information in this post. We are moving down to North Carolina from Pennsylvania, in June. We looked at several places and seem to be going towards Kernersville, Oak Ridge, High Point or Jamestown. We are moving down because of a job. I have teenagers, so we are looking for colleges. We looked at Guilford Technical Community College and seems to work for all of my kids. Any other information that I may need to make our "move" more successful?

Thanks for any information.

All would be excellent areas to move to. Oak Ridge would be the priciest by far. Greensboro has the largest number of colleges in the area. Jamestowm would be very convenient to GTCC. If any are still in high school, here is a link that should be helpful for school info: Guilford County Schools and also: GreatSchools.net

Here is a link to Guilford County's website, where you can get a great deal of helpful info: Guilford County Site

Do you have any specific questions?
