Easily Orlando. I want nothing to do with South Carolina because it's South Carolina. Florida is pretty ****** up as well but I'll deal with it.

Orlando has so much to offer for family fun and the retail sector can hang with somenof the best in the south. Also Orlando drivers were not as fast and aggressive as I thought either. I visited Houston for 5 days so I had a feel of the city and doing 80 and above was the norm. So vacationing in Orlando for 5 days I was able to get a solid impression on the traffic situation.My wife and I felt that drivers in Mobile a city that's half a million drive faster than Orlando drivers.We were shocked and impressed.
Nah. People here drive fast. Dont know where you were driving but not many here drive the speed limit. Not even me. Tourist, Old People, And New Drivers drive the Speed limit and that's it.

This is talking specifically about Greenville SC. Not all parts of SC might be desirable to you just as many parts of FL are undesirable too.

???? Greenville is in South Carolina. I don't care for the state as a whole so I would never consider Greenville.

Nothing. I like Charleston and Myrtle Beach.

But just driving through SC, I didn't get a good vibe. Might be just me lol.

The interstates really don't showcase the state in the best light; one reason for that is that the interstates in SC don't go through the central cities (which is a good thing). If you ever have the time, venture into downtown Greenville, Columbia, Aiken, etc.

As a whole, I'd take FL over SC but I'd take Greenville over any town in FL.
