It is located midway between North Carolina’s Blue Ridge and the Great Smoky Mountains to the west and by the Atlantic beaches and the Outer Banks from the east. One of the few cities located along the rolling hills of North Carolina’s Piedmont, the city’s economy and lifestyle has been more on the industrial and the working-class side. Because of the university and high-level educational attainment of its residents, the economy of Greensboro has been a unique mix of both declining and emerging industries. Still, nevertheless, the employment rate has generally been stable in the past few years. The city has always been regarded as a place where it’s big enough to have everything that you may need but can still be small enough to bump into people that you may know. The population of Greensboro may be growing, and its metropolitan area may be revitalizing. However, the cost of living is still less than that of the national average. Residents always pay almost roughly the same for groceries and transportation compared to an average American. Yet, the housing costs have been relatively lower than those in the major cities.
