hi!! we are thinking of moving over to greenville or anderson, leaning more on anderson cuz its smaller and has things to do that we like.
we currently live outside knoxville tennessee, in a town similar in size to anderson.
husbands job has him over there more then here, and we enjoy going to beach but didnt want to live at the beach cuz we luv the hills.
i had the the impression that crime wasnt real bad there, but just came across newstation site for channel 7(cbs) and saw crime tracker link, and saw alot of crime issues in both greenville and anderson that worried me.
shootings at anderson mall, beatings, murders, robberies, etc.
is it really that bad there???? until today, everything we saw made it seem like both towns was good choice for a family(we have 3 kids, 16,15 and 9)
but the anderson mall crime stories alone spooked me!! here, the kids can go to the mall with thier friends and not be bothered.
we looked at summerville, north of charleston, and worried about crime there thanks to north charleston, but now i wonder which is worse.
we like the low cost of living upstate offers as well as outdoor stuff and the race track in anderson.
is the crime this bad? getting worse?? not as bad?? only in certain parts of town??(if, so please tell me what parts to avoid)
how about the schools??? sick of the crappy schools here, but dont want kids going where there is gangs and such either. any imput is great, thanks!!
