Relocating To A New City
Dated: March 24 2020
Moving to a new city can be a daunting endeavor; however, moving to Greensboro is a wonderful choice to make. North Carolina is listed in the top 10 places for relocation in the US, and this is one of several great places the state has to offer. The area is full of historical places to visit, and provides excellent opportunities to explore for residents of any age. With 170 parks, gardens, and unique facilities there is an endless supply of things to do in this ‘evergreen’ city.
About Our City
Although often underplayed by other North Carolina cities like Raleigh and Charlotte, Greensboro is a quaint city rich in Southern history and charm. The city is named for General Nathaniel Greene, who led American forces in the Revolutionary War’s Battle of Guilford Courthouse in 1781, and there is a delightful public park commemorating the battle. With a population of over 280,000 people, it is North Carolina’s third largest city. Home to the first sit-in at Woolworth’s, which you can still visit at downtown’s International Civil Rights Center Museum, the Carolina Theater, and Vick’s VapoRub, the city is full of historical landmarks.
Something for Everyone
Greensboro has areas perfect for families, students, and young and older couples alike. There are plenty of community events going on, lots of open spaces and some big-time entertainment, such as the new Steven Tanger Center for Performing Arts, currently under construction. Suburban areas provide access to a variety of recreational facilities for walking, biking or day-time musings, such as the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden, Country Park, Bur-Mill Park and the Greensboro Science Center. There are several college campuses in the area, including the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, North Carolina A&T, Greensboro College, Guilford College, Elon Univeristy and Bennett College, just to name a few. The Greensboro Coliseum Complex is home to concerts, competitions, and other various performances year round, plus the UNCG basketball team.
One of the best things about Greensboro is its people. Friendly and warm, they’ll put on the Southern Charm and make you feel like home in a jiffy. With companies such as Volvo Trucks, VF Corporation, and Syngenta headquartered here, there is a vibrant international and out of state community as well.
Location, location, location
Greensboro is conveniently located just a few hours from mountains, beaches and bustling cities. Just an hour and a half from Charlotte and under three hours to Asheville and the coastal town of Willmington, locals love to hit the roads on weekends and holidays.
A Bit of Everything
For shopping, the open mall at Friendly Center is a conveniently located option, as well as Four Seasons Mall. Downtown also offers quaint shops and restaurants. Just a half-hour drive from Greensboro, High Point offers many furniture outlets, with Furniture World topping the list. Winston-Salem, also an easy drive away, also boasts Hanes Mall, which you can visit after strolling one-of-a-kind Old Salem.
For art lovers, the Community Theater of Greensboro, Triad Stage Theater and the UNCG School of the Performing Arts put on great theatrical and music productions year round. The Weatherspoon Museum, Greensboro’s Historical Museum, Community Art Center and Children’s Museum offer something for everyone.
