Overall, a nice area and growing fast
We moved to Greer about a year ago because we were able to get a little more house for the money than in neighboring towns like Simpsonville. Greer is also located closer to the mountains and because of that, many areas are quite scenic. Lake Robinson is a must see! I don't know how someone from Florida could think the cost of living was greater here than in Florida. We meet people all the time that haved moved from Florida to the Upstate because they could no longer afford to live in Florida. If you go to Realtor.com and do a search of homes, there is no comparison between the two...Greer (and the rest of the Upstate) wins in a landslide. There are many new businesses opening in Greer, and it seems as though the city is only going to get better and better.
Great quality of life
My family & I moved to Greenville in August 2005 from the Northeast and so far, have found it to be a great place to live in the South. A temperate climate, sunny days, friendly people, an awesome downtown area, close to the mountains and about 3 to 4 hours from great beaches, all in all it is everything we were hoping it would be. We had looked into Florida before moving to Greenville because we love warm weather and going to the beach, but after taking everything into consideration, we realized Greenville would be safer from hurricanes, less humid and congested than Florida, a much more affordable place to raise a family, and with the vision they have for the future, a place that will only continue to get better and better!
