Winston-Salem, Greensboro ranked among 100 best places to live in America

Winston-Salem, N.C. — Several popular North Carolina destinations, including Greensboro and Winston-Salem, are ranked among the top 100 places to live in the United States, according to U.S. News and Report.

The list ranks the country’s 100 most populous metropolitan areas based on the job market, value, quality of life, desirability and net migration.

Raleigh took the No. 7 spot, Charlotte is No. 14, Winston-Salem is No. 37 and Greensboro is listed at a solid No. 51.

“Winston-Salem, referred to by locals as just Winston, is a region with an upward trajectory that still maintains its Southern roots. But while the population is traditionally Southern in its friendliness, it’s also comprised of cultures from around the globe,” the publication says. “The metro area celebrates its diversity during an array of festivals and through a variety of cuisines. You’ll find restaurants serving everything from traditional North Carolina barbecue to Indian curries and Greek pastries.”

Writer Brent Patterson describes Winston-Salem as having a “small-town feel while allowing for improvements.”

Michele Hartle’s Greensboro description is just as endearing, describing the city as being a “short jaunt to and from all major cities in North Carolina.”

“Greensboro, North Carolina, is one of those places that’s big enough to have everything you need, but small enough for you to regularly bump into people you know,” she writes. “People who live here love it and say they have no reason to leave. Those who do leave will often return home to Greensboro to raise their families.”

The top 10 cities include:

  • Austin
  • Denver
  • San Jose, California
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Fayetteville, Arkansas
  • Seattle
  • Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina
  • Boston
  • Des Moines, Iowa
  • Salt Lake City

The 2016 dates for the annual FOX8/Old Dominion Triad Holiday Concerts have been announced. All of the concerts will feature Christmas music.

The Burlington concert will feature music by the Greensboro Symphony and will be held at Williams High School Auditorium on Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The Greensboro concert will feature music by the Greensboro Symphony and will be held at the Greensboro Coliseum on Dec. 16 at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The Winston-Salem concert, featuring music by the Winston-Salem Symphony, will be held at LJVM Coliseum on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.

FOX8’s Neill McNeill and Katie Nordeen will once again host this year’s concerts in Greensboro and Winston-Salem.  New this year, the Greensboro and Winston-Salem concerts will feature revamped formats to include more music, more performers, and an intermission break.  The new format promises to make the experience even more fun for attendees of all ages, while maintaining the traditions of more than 25 years of Triad Holiday Concerts.

As always, admission and parking are free for all three concerts with your donation of canned food items to benefit The Salvation Army.  Last year’s FOX8/Old Dominion Triad Holiday Concerts raised more than 500,000 cans of food.  The FOX8/Old Dominion Triad Holiday Concerts serve as the single largest provider of food for the hungry in the Triad, and help stock the shelves of The Salvation Army for more than half the year.
