Gina M. says, “Camel City Carriage Co. to take a slower look at things…possibly with a bottle of wine!!!” (May 2013)

Alex S. says, “A great blend of nature, downtown arts, restaurant & bar scene, easy parking, not much traffic, and plenty to do outdoors year round. Most importantly though, the people are friendly and take their time to live life a day at a time. (May 2013)

Joann W. says, “Hardly any traffic. You can get just about anywhere you need to go in under 30 minutes! Along those lines, you seldom deal with long waits at restaurants or stores. In general, people smile at you when you pass them on the street and the sun shines more often than it does not! I also think it has a lot of great educational opportunities within commuting distance whether you are a full time student or pursuing a degree in the evenings. There are so many places to further your degrees and education to help advance your career.” (May 2013)

Ellen D. says, “Local talent, local beer and wine, great people, less traffic. You can drive from one side of Winston-Salem to the other in 15 minutes. Love it here! Affordable housing and good education.” (May 2013)
