Greensboro is pretty nice in some areas. If you look about an hour further east there is cary, apex, holly springs and surrounding towns that are all very nice to live in and are within miles of downtown raleigh. Maybe some of the triad guys can post up in here for you on things/places to check out. When are you coming, maybe you can catch up with some of them at a meet as they do them every weekend.
Edit: just saw you had an interview in g-boro so I doubt you'd want an hour commute. There are still very nice places to be in the triad though. Areas just east like Burlington are nice also.
