Grew up here and loved it! It's a city with a small town feel. Great people, food, parks and architecture. They need to improve public transportation and provide more public activities and spaces downtown, but overall it's a pretty place. The university campus is gorgeous, growing and a catalyst in the community. Centrally located, not far from the mountains or the coast. Consistently voted one of the best places to live, probably due to the quality of life.

Have lived in High Point all my life nd have throuroughly enjoyed the environment, people, and opportunities this city allows. It has grown a lot in the past few years and is continuing to grow for the better!
It a nice small city to raise a family. There’s not much to do, as it is a small city but on the bright side, it is very quiet, which may be a plus for those that don’t like to be disturbed at quiet hours. I would like to see more growth and job opportunities! There are jobs to find but mostly you will find yourself traveling to the next city over for employment but the drive is not bad! Still an over all nice place to live if you appreciate the smaller, simplistic, suburb life.
