May I ask a few questions about Traveler's Rest?

I'm down here in South Florida, where even in the "quiet suburbs" the cars constantly go BOOMBOOMBOOM at 4 am and the kids dress like ganstas...and I can't stand it anymore (not that I ever could). I have a toddler and I don't want her living in this environment. I'm an artist and kinda quirky myself, but prefer a polite community where she will learn that respect is more than a word.
I grew up in the hills of the Hudson Valley (forgive me if you will) and found that country setting to be a better place to raise a child. My husband, born and all his life Southern, will not move any further North than the Carolinas.
My husband may have an opportunity to relocate to Greenville...I realize that may be as, ahem, popular as our influx of 'seasonal' visitors down here, so if you bark at me, I'll understand.
That aside, I have been looking at old properties (not a new house kinda gal) around the area and Traveler's Rest has come up in my search more than once. Because of the location, it strikes me as a lovely place to live, but I want to get some feedback from those who live there as to whether my choice would be wise.
So I pose to you, whomever will answer: would a new family from out of town be welcomed, or might I find many that wished I'd stayed away? I understand that small towns usually want to stay small and that new residents can be seen one of two ways.
If this forum is receptive to my query, I may have a few more questions for you...
Much thanks to any and all for your time and honesty,
Trish

From the sounds of what've you've said here you don't want, is all right there in TR, and all of Greenville county, no matter what part. I lived in TR for 13 years, and it sounds no different than where you now live. You'd just be moving right back into the same thing anywhere in Greenville county.

I lived in Travelers Rest. Lots of jobs. And lots of highway. It was pretty quiet where i lived. Don't live in Greenville. It is very noisy. But Travelers Rest is pretty nice.

Trish,
My husband, young children, and I moved here two years ago from another state. We have felt very welcomed by the community. We love the area, partly for it's proximity to downtown Greenville and to the NC mountains, partly for the great little town that is Travelers Rest. We've lived in Georgia and North Carolina prior to coming here--and hope to stay for a long time. It really is a gem. Good luck with your decision-making!

Trish,

Travelers Rest is a small town that I have found to be very warm and welcoming. The people are kind and sincere amd the city is under good leadership. The community development currently taking place downtown is going to be amazing and I think will turn TR into a wonderful little town for walking and shopping. Come visit us at Trillium Arts Centre, Travelers Rest's non-profit arts center, right on Main Street, and see a little bit of what is happening in this town...
