Moving to NC around June of next year. Around Winston-Salem area. Anyone live in those parts? Started looking at some houses but wanted a little more feed back than what my realtor is saying.

I might be moving to NC shortly after the new year for school. Actually going to look at houses/apartments in May in the Concord area.

Whoops, just saw this. I've lived in Winston-Salem for 15 years after moving down from Canada and LOVE it. I don't think I could live anywhere else.

"Nice" places to live are highly variable. You can have some lovely houses on one block and then there's crackhead central 3 blocks away. If I had to buy my house over again, I'd try harder to live outside the People's Republic of Forsyth County. But really, taxes and services are very reasonable compared to up north. Schools are also pretty variable. If you've got or will soon have kids you'll probably want to try to get in Mt Tabor's district. There's really no substitute for taking a drive around the neighborhood and having a look. If you don't have a realtor already, the guy who helped us out was great and very patient.

Lots of nice restaurants around here. We've got everything from diners and lunch counters to $50 a plate snob places. BBQ is a noun not a verb. We've got some good wineries and breweries nearby too. I don't know about nightlife.

If you shoot we've got two great sporting clays courses within 30 minutes (Friendship Sporting Clays and Shane's Sporting Clays), two indoor pistol ranges and a large private rifle club 30 minutes south.

Let me know if there's anything else I can fill you in on.

Nice to know about the gun ranges. I'm putting in a pistol range myself. One of the houses I like is in Germanton. Looking for some land. This place has around 11 acres. I'm sure my girlfriend is going to have some questions for you when she gets home. I'll pm you later today.

I live just outside Charlotte and Concord in little Harrisburg, NC. I moved here 5 years ago from Chicago and I LOVE it here!!!!! I thought I knew what a rust-free car was until moving down here and realized they don't exist up north. Plus cruise-ins and car shows virtually year-round down here!
