Greensboro is the third largest city in NC with approximately 270,000 people in a MSA of some 1.6 million.

The city boasts a rapidly developing fine arts center, child friendly venues and a multitude of outdoor amenities. With seven higher education institutions in the immediate area, a large industrial base, and proximity to the Research Triangle, it is an attractive location for dual career families.
