Looking for any information about the differences between the two (housing, quality of life, schools, etc). My wife and I and our 2 year old daughter are moving to the area in August.

Thanks!

There are many nice areas in both Greensboro & Winston. I grew up in Stokesdale north of Greensboro & now live in Clemmons which is just west of Winston. Kernersville is in between the two on I-40, and because of that it is an attractive area as well. Greensboro's night life is probably better if you are in to that, but with a 2 year old it may not be that important to you. You can check out the different school systems at NC School Report Cards.

Clemmons which is in western Forsyth County. It is a really nice area convenient to I-40 with a median income of $67400. Tanglewood Park is also in Clemmons which offers golf, horseback riding, walking trails, picnic areas, paddle boating, swimming, bmx biking, etc. It's a very nice park.

Winston offers a growing down town, arts (School of the Arts, Sawtooth Center), an ACC school in Wake Forest, Old Salem (history attraction revolving around the mid 1700's when the city was founded by the Moravians), and nice southern living. Median wage in Forsyth Co. is $36,302, and the median house is $135,500 (2005).

I've been away from Greensboro for about 20 years now, but it is a very nice place to live. The down town area has been revitalized with several night life spots and a new downtown baseball stadium. It is full of historical sites like the Battleground Memorial Park (Revolutionary War), Heritage Center (chronicles the Civil Rights sit-ins), and America's oldest dinner theater, the Barn Dinner Theater. It has a great Children's Museum as well. Average wage in Guilford Co is $34,535 & the median home value is $155,704.

I love this area so much, I couldn't recommend one over the other. It really depends on your personal situation with work, family, etc. I would definitely
recommend making a few trips down to see which would work better for you & the family. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the response Dealz. We spent this past week in the area and decided on Greensboro. Looking at the New Irving Park area for living. We loved the downtown area (ballpark, children's museum, etc...) and overall the Country Club golf seemed better (which is VERY important to me). We can't wait to get the moving truck headed that direction!

Job relocation for my wife. We moved to Indianapolis 14 months ago (we came to the Corporate Headquarters) and now she will be a Regional Manager. I work out of my house so I can live anywhere. Looking forward to getting back in the South and away from the COLD Winters!

Default Irving Park Listing

We just got a foreclosure that is pre-list in Irving Park that is a 5 BR, 3BA that will be in the $375-$425K range I believe. Bank hasn't given us the list price yet. It's a very nice house that has been updated recently if your interested. Probably won't last long once it hits the market.
