Q: Can you tell me more about Greensboro?
A: Greensboro is a city of 290,201 people (2017). It is nestled between the Appalachian Mountains and the Atlantic coast, in a region of gently rolling terrain called the Piedmont. With lengthy fall and spring seasons and generally mild winters, outdoor activities are popular among residents. Greensboro is a diverse city that is rich in culture and history.
Greensboro is small enough to not have traffic, but large enough to offer a variety of recreational activities and education/job opportunities for significant others. It is located just over an hour from Durham and Raleigh, a three- to four-hour drive from the beach and two hours from the mountains. Greensboro is full of parks and provides lots of opportunities for outdoor recreation. Cost of living here is very affordable. The public education system is well regarded, and there are also private and religious-based education options.
