I'm just getting ready to move to the Triad. Oak Ridge sounds very nice...it's northwest of Greensboro. Seems EXTREMELY safe, excellent schools (if that's a concern).

Have you been to visit yet? Greensboro is pretty small--20 minutes from one side to the other. So--30 minutes away could put you, well, in the middle of another town. Are you just wanting to live in a rural area? They are all around and you can still be 15 minutes from the center of town. Oak Ridge is nice, so is Browns Summit or Summerfield. Great deals on homes in those areas now too.

Pay attention to your potential commute route - I live in Oak Ridge and some of the NorthWest roads are really congested (old rural 2 lanes) - if you have good access to Bryan Blvd, you'll be ok. Also, Summerfield has some contentious/wacky politics (entertaining to us in OR, though). But the Northwest area has great schools, great rural park access, super folks. Good cultural activities in both Greensboro and Winston-Salem. Come on down!

Can't argue with what others have said, but I always have to give a plug to my hometown of Gibsonville, NC in Eastern Guilford County. It seems to attract folks looking for a rural feel that potentially have commutes to the Raleigh/Durham area or need to be convenient to Greensboro as well as Burlington or Raleigh and that are also interested in lower taxes, more land, longer drive etc. Certainly Oak Ridge, Browns Summit, Summerfield - also Kernersville is another one for you to look into.
