Look into ballayntyne, and maybe even union county.

It's a difficult question to answer. What's best for one person might be different for another. What would the ideal neighborhood be like for you? If you like lively neighborhoods, you could do a search by walk scores. Here is a link on site where you can perform such a search http://www.nc-homeownership.com/custom-search. The higher the score, the better.
I hope this helps. Let me know if I can further assist you.
Second, how specific do you need for 'neighborhoods?' South End and Dilworth have seen an explosion in value because of the light rail and Myers Park, Eastover and SouthPark are always a desirable areas. There are subdivisions within the areas or neighborhoods that are grouped more similarly by price and several have community amenities such as pools, tennis and common areas. You're not the first who has asked about specific subdivisions and I'm working on adding that to my website but there is comprehensive area/neighborhood information under Relocation Guide on FindHomeNC.com that might offer you some answers.
Hope this helps and feel free to contact me with any questions firstname.lastname@example.org Best wishes!
