I am going to check out Spartanburg and Greenville, South Carolina. From what I've seen so far, the prices look reasonable and it looks like are some pretty nice neighborhoods. Now I just need to check out the schools.

Oh - what are the winters like in those areas - do either of you know? Any chance for snow? Do they experience all four seasons?
The winters here (and there) are not bad at all in my opinion. From Greenville to Charlotte we get on average one 6 inch snow a year, a few dustings of snow maybe and in some years an ice storm or two. It's all just enough to get us excited about it, close school a day or two and then melt away before we are tired of it

Sounds great! We are originally from Houston, Texas, lived on the island of Aruba for a year, and have been in Orlando, Florida for the last two years. So, needless to say, we have not seen much snow at all! The kids will be thrilled! Sounds like just enough to make it fun, but not too much.

What about the Fall? When do the summer temperatures start to subside and allow for the cooler autumn temperatures to take over? And do the leaves have a period where their color changes are really noticeable?

OHMYGOSH, our falls are beautiful - my favorite time of the year We get very hot in August but that usually moves into an Indian Summer right after Labor Day. Cooler temps follow quickly, though it can flucuate year by year. Leaves start turning in early October with peak colors by Halloween and the first week of November. I will post you a picture that I took near my home last October:
