Hi, folks,

I wrote a while ago asking for suggestions on where to live that would have good schools, be gay-friendly, and have tolerable commute times to both Raleigh and Durham. We've heard that Leesville road has the good schools and it seems to be well-situated for the commutes. But what is it like there? Our preference would be not to live in the suburbs; we like to be able to walk places, like to the library, a coffee shop, bookstore, etc; however, the schools and the commutes will have to take precedence.

Thanks for any input!

Leesville is in the suburbs, and you will need to drive to all the places you mention - grocery stores, coffee houses, libraries and the like. There are good schools, and it is convenient to RTP (15-20 minute commute). Not particularly convenient to downtown Raleigh or Durham, but I suppose not all that inconvenient depending on where you are traveling to.

Being able to walk to all the stores, etc. means you'll have to find a more of an urban feel than the area around Leesville Road.

I'd sugges you look at the homes being built near Falls Shopping Center and North Hills Shopping Center. Other than that...the downtown area is becoming more and more popular, a very urban feel but a bit pricey. My opinion.

Hope this helps,
