lol. Yep, you don't want to be near cookie cutter houses. They are all over. That's what Simpsonville is ALL about. Stay far away.
Simpsonville is rather far from Spartanburg. I'd hate to make that road trip each day.
The thing I've noticed after moving up here from the Charleston area is that you just don't see as many young casual bike riders. I guess it is because of all the hills. Charleston is flat. I have noticed the mountain bikers all over though. Kids in my neighborhood have skate boards and scooters. You just don't see too many flat areas.
You'll have to take your son to the Swamp Rabbit Trail to ride some. He'll absolutely love that.
I'm not too familiar with any biking trails in Greer though. I'm sure he could bike around the neighborhood.
I walk/jog a lot around Simpsonville and I'm always looking for new routes to take so I don't get bored. Perhaps he could look on mapmyrun.com and see if any trail type places in the area? That's how I get a lot of my info.
Good luck in your decision and to honest either area to live would be a good choice.
