To put it mildly...this is the WORST place that I have ever lived in my entire life...and I've lived in a lot of places.
You will never find more ignorant, lazy, narrowed minded people anywhere.
The so-called great economy is a joke. There are no jobs here...unless you want to work part time at one of the dozens if strip malls. Which, got what it's worth, is the majority of Greenville!
It's a no wonder why almost everyone I've come into contact with is on some sort of public assistance.
The rents are also outrages for a place that offers so little. You will be nickeled and dimed with a ton of fees and extras that we're not spelled out to you up front.

I'm currently considering moving to Greenville, sc and I read all the above comments but I just wanted an update on how this area is if considering moving there?

I don't know where this person is getting his information but he is way off base. I moved to Greenville 13 years ago from north and had to move 2 years ago to Charlotte, NC. I would move back to Greenville in a heartbeat. In fact we still have a home there we lease. It is very family oriented with a downtown that cannot be matched. Very family, friendly oriented community. A beautiful area with easy access to major cities, the mountains or the beach.

South Carolina is a poverty state. Low wages, high rent. Corrupt government. Corrupt courts. Bad road system. High taxes to pay for high salaried government workers.
It's a substantiated fact.
As to the people of South Carolina? They moved here from all over the USA looking for jobs, escaping other messed up states. But did not do their research or was told wrong by someone who is totally clueless.
If you like low wages, high taxes, bad roads, corrupt government, high rent and cheap homes built by illegal aliens, then SC is for you.
You think it is bad in the upstate? Try Charleston. Really nasty people. And that area has a very serious crime problem.

We are hoping to move to Greenville area. My husband will be transferred and work from home. I have a medical background and hope to be a coder or unit secretary at a hospital. I see some of the suburbs have much better real estate prices. How far out is too far for me to commute to a medical center. I'm looking in Green, Inman, Simpsonville. Any area NOT to move to? I see many jobs for unit secretaries and various medical centers but don't know how far out I might be moving away from these medical centers.

Im a single mom of two and want to start off somewhere new before my 4 year old turns 5 to start kindergarten. Greenville looks amazing sounds amazing too. Where could I find affordable housing around that are for a family of 3? Is SC a good place to live? Different than Missouri? Are there bad areas? Bad schools? Good job opportunities for the future?

Don't, you will never regret it. Corruption top to bottom. good Ole boy's club. limited employment opportunites. Impoverished. Ignorance. Lack of cultural venues. Bad schools & police state. I promise, the cheap cost of living comes with a very high price tag. Just say No. Wish I had, can't wait to get the hell out. You have no idea until it's too late. Cronies everywhere.

My wife and i are thinking of relocating down to the greenville area. We have familu that loves it there. I am a carpenter and my wife is an ultrasound tech. We are both italians from the nyc area. We are tired of the lifestyle and jackasses uo here to be honest. I have 2 questions. 1. Would work be easy to find for both of us ? 2. Do they offer decent health benefits since we have 2 children. Any info would be helpful

I am from greenville sc and moved here in march 2014 from brooklyn NY. It's a beautiful place and peaceful. You get time to relax and enjoy with family.
You won't believe that I used to work for a TV broadcasting for 7 years which was a decent job with all the benefits and over here I'm still struggling for a decent job and working on a gas station but still HAPPY :)
I am pretty sure that you guys can find jobs here in Greenville. 3 bed apartment rent is $650-850 minimum wage is 7.35 I guess.
Google jobs in Greenville sc or job agencies in Greenville sc. Check on indeed.com etc.
It's a very nice place to raise kids.
No traffic cameras / red light cameras
No alternative side parking / street cleaning
No parking meters even for dmv or ebt offices :)
It's a great place.

Hi, I moved here from brooklyn, New York last year and we're in love with this small town/city/valley :)
It's definitely good for kids. And there are so many job agencies who help you find a job please Google it.
The most affordable and clean neighborhood is called serenity apartments in Taylors. 15 mins to downtown, 15-20 mins to airport, 7-8 mins to malls. You have to have a car as the public transport is not good.
It's a beautiful, lovely, peaceful place

That was a tragic accident and there should have been sprinklers. That doesn't mean greenville is haunted or the hotel. Sorry u had a weird experience.

Terrible place to live due to traffic and air quality. If you like sitting in traffic on a backroad while paying outrageous levels of taxes then move here. I am a southerner from Tennessee.. these people, their culture and city have been so contaminated by northeastern ways that I worry that it's gone forever. Everyone talks about how great it is which makes me think they don't know any different. I have experienced zero sense of REAL community it's all about money here.
