I lived in the Forestdale East subdivision of Jamestown, NC and have great memories there. Jamestown is a nice community for families & retirees. The housing was affordable at the time that I lived there but may be much higher now. The house I lived in was the biggest house I ever owned and it was a fairytale life for me. I highly recommend Jamestown as a place to build your family dreams or just retire to a smaller home. Quiet small city living. Not far from the "big" city Greensboro and the furniture capital of the world High Point. On a negative it may require a long commute to your job as it is a distance from the major job cities. You may get those snow storms every few years or so but what beautiful seasons they have. Awww.

Jamestown is a small town in North Carolina in the triad area. It is in between Greensboro and High Point. It is very small and there are not too many choices in things to do, places to eat, etc. However, there is a cute area downtown Jamestown that has a very nice restaurant (Southern Roots) and a couple of fun bars. One bar, called The Deck, has live music on the weekends and usually has food trucks outside too. It is a lot of fun to go hang out with friends!
For the size of this small town it sure packs in a ton of things to do. Night life is always fun and you see all your friends at the amazing Full Moon Oyster bar on a Friday night, catch some live outdoor music at The Deck, or just eat great food at Southern Roots( never had a meal there that was not amazing) The free concerts at the park, yoga, tons of festivals of our local churches and the best Swim and tennis club Cedarwood. Still living in a town where everyone knows everyone else is priceless. And there is like no crime cause the police train here and cops are always out in force. We have our own YMCA and GTCC college as well.
