Greensboro is part of a larger metropolitan area called, the Piedmont Triad. The other two major cities that make up the triad are Winston-Salem and High Point. These cities make up the economic and cultural center for the northern-central part of North Carolina.

The largest city in the Piedmont Triad is Greensboro. Throughout Greensboro there are a number of unique neighborhoods, ranging from historic to upscale so there is something for everyone.

The next largest city in the Triad is Winston-Salem. This city is traditionally known for its involvement in tobacco, textiles and furniture and while these industries are still important, Winston-Salem is now focusing on attracting members of the high-tech industry.
