There’s a reason why the Northerners keep picking North Carolina to move or retire to. Those harsh winters are something that NC sees very little of and it doesn’t get quite as hot as Florida. Autumn is known for the colorful leaves and Spring offers so many blooms. Many choose to drive on the rolling Blue Ridge Parkway, which is less than an hour away from the Triad.
One of the greatest things about the Triad is you may seem far from everything, but you’re actually centrally located between two rapidly growing cities, Charlotte and Greensboro. If you are wanting more of that country feel, rather than living in the city, you can always choose to live a little further out for the lower home prices!
