Diversity in research, health care and education put dwellers of Winston-Salem apartments on the map. But in addition to the working world aspects of this great city, it has also come to be known as the "City of Arts," possibly because it had the first arts council in the US in 1949.
The area has recently become a bit of a hub for research and development in the nanotechnology, bio-tech and high-tech fields with a portion of the Piedmont Triad Research Park in downtown Winston-Salem.
The largest employer in the city is Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and with so much research going on around it, the patients are surely benefiting. RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company, makers of Camel and other brands of cigarettes, is headquartered here, as well as Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Hanes Brands and Lowe's Stores. Wake Forest University, a nationally recognized private university and Winston Salem State University are available higher education for Winston-Salem apartment-ites.
As for the "arts," we are referring to both performing and visual arts in Winston-Salem. In this city of over 76,000 people is located the North Carolina School of the Arts, the Piedmont Opera Theatre, the Winston-Salem Orchestra, and many art galleries and workshop's in the city's art district.
Whether you are a more work-focused or a more artsy person, Winston-Salem apartments are a great home for you.
