Conveniently located off of two of North Carolina’s major highways—I85 and I40—the mid-sized city of Greensboro offers an ideal location for active adults looking to settle down within easy access of the interstate as well as an international airport. Greensboro is also located just a short drive away from Charlotte as well as larger cities in the Triangle Area and popular smaller towns like Winston-Salem, Lexington, High Point, and Asheboro.
The city also offers a wide array of cultural amenities that range from the International Civil Rights Center & Museum and Greensboro Science Center to the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park and Weatherspoon Art Museum. There’s also a large variety of local eateries, coffee shops, and bakeries for residents to visit as well as local shops and boutiques.
There are several active adult communities in the area, and a number have homes available for around $200K. Here are some excellent options.
Originally built in 2001 by Bostic Construction, Greensboro’s Guilford Crossing is a small, tight-knit community made up of 48 condominiums that are available as resale-only.

The condos on the property are spread throughout three-story buildings that each have elevator access and adjacent parking lots.
