Piedmont Triad, NC

Located between the Atlantic Ocean and Appalachian Mountains, the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina consists of the three cities of Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point.  This region has over 1.6 million residents, making it the 30th largest metropolitan area in the U.S.  The Piedmont Triad boasts a superb transportation infrastructure, creating a convenient distribution hub for commerce in the mid-Atlantic region.  In 1982, the Piedmont Triad International Airport opened, bringing on a building boom along the Interstate 40 corridor, inspiring the Triad cities to join forces attracting businesses which has led to two major research parks, nearly a million jobs, and respected educational institutions.  The vibrant area is a popular destination for those looking to retire or relocate in the Southeast thanks to the robust economy, progressive health care, lively arts scene, and other attractive features.

The Piedmont Triad of North Carolina (the Triad) is the area in Central North Carolina made up of three cities, Greensboro, Winston Salem and High Point, surrounding smaller cities and towns

The Piedmont Triad of North Carolina (The Triad) gets its name from the three cities of Greensboro, Winston Salem and High Point in Guilford and Forsyth counties.  However, it also encompasses surrounding cities and towns, such as Clemmons, Lewisville, Pfafftown, Rural Hall, Tobaccoville, Walkertown, Kernersville, Lexington, Thomasville, Mocksville, Advance, Yadkinville and more and includes Davidson and Davie counties as well.

The Triad is conveniently located right in the middle of so much!  Charlotte is an hour and a half away, Durham/Raleigh/Chapel Hill (the Triangle) are about 2 hours away.  The mountain are 2-3 hours away and the beach is 3-4 hours away.  Virginia is about 2 hours up the road, Chattanooga is about 5 hours west, Columbia is about 4 hours south and Atlanta is 5 hours southwest.  The Piedmont Triad International Airport is in Greensboro and there’s also a major international airport, Charlotte Douglas, just south of us in Charlotte.  With I40 running right through the middle of the triad and I85 cutting through as well, wherever you have to go, you can get there.

North Carolina is home to many fine colleges and there’s a bunch right here in the Triad.  Wake Forest University, High Point University, Winston Salem State University, NC A&T, and the University of North Carolina has two campuses here, UNCG and UNCSA.

Below I’ve compiled a list of links that are useful to Triad residents.  This is by no means an exhaustive list of resources and I can not guarantee the completeness of any information.  These are resources I’ve gleaned over many years of living here and helping clients. This list will be updated and added to as new information or resources come to my attention.
