I moved from Florida to High Point, NC about two years ago. With not having a vehicle I have not been able to really experience all that the city has to offer, but everything is conveniently located near my residence so being car-less hasn't been an issue. I quickly got a job working in customer service at a local Harris Teeter and it has been a great experience so far! The people in the area that I have interacted with have been very sweet. I love how clean and put together everything is around here. I would recommend anyone move here!

I love High Point because it is has a lot of historical significance. It is the place where many civil rights demonstrations took place. It is also the furniture heart of the United States. During the furniture market, downtown High Point is booming and has a variety of local stores open. While visiting, you can also see the worlds largest chest!
High Point is a small town full of lovely people. It is a town that is what you make it, since there is not a lot to do. If you love furniture and food, you will like High Point! It is a perfect mix of city and rural areas. There is barely any traffic! There is a lot of great churches in High Point, as well.
