Goodness, I passed through Gray Court once. There is very little to do there as it is a tiny town. I doubt bus service goes out that far, but maybe someone from that area will know.

Busses? Ehh thats a negative. Matter of fact the only city in the Greenville area that has a metro bus system is greenville city itself, although i think they might run through parts of mauldin sometimes.

There are a lot of cows and horses in Gray Court. I think they have a FD and a gas station on the 101 side too. That's about it. It's right on 385 though, so you can be in Simpsonville in 5 minutes, Greenville in 10. Or if you're on teh other side of Gray Court you can drive through a few small mill towns and hit 26 and be in Spartanburg in abt 20 minutes.
I don't think they even have a grocery store there. I know someone that lives there and she drives into Greenville or Laurens for her shopping/drs appts/etc.

Oh and there are a lot of Wild Turkeys. I had never in my life seen one until I went to Gray Court. They just plop right out in the road.

It's very pretty there though, it's in the country, not a lot of clutter.

It is small little town if you are looking to live in a place with a country feel too it you will love it there. Nothing much around and a lot of old houses and trailers. No buses but like someone else said you will be close to simpsonville. But other then that not much to say about Gray Court other then blah :O) Hope you like it there.

Default Gray Court is a dead area

the actual town is pretty bad...lots of low income folks. I hope you're not actually living in the town of Gray Court. It's extremely sketchy. My wife is from the country outside of the town. And as someone who grew up there..she said she would NEVER live in Laurens county again. Schools are pretty bad by comparison to surrounding counties, i.e. Greenville, Spartanburg, and Newberry. I myself worked in Laurens for awhile and was shocked at the number of people who sent their children to the new Laurens Academy.

I live in Gray Court, not in town but outside the city limits. Its a very small town, but its a beautiful area as you get out and away. Rolling pastures, hardwood forest, Planted pines. Just like any other place in Upstate South Carolina. It has its good points and its bad. Downtown Gray Court there's hardly much. Mr. Curry's Hardware store owned by Gray Curry - Super nice guy. There are a few ethnic restaraunts etc, package store (of course) and a couple gas stations. Life in Gray Court is about WHERE you live. I must say, although there are some nasty areas, there are some beautiful AnteBellum homes around, a couple I'm sure reach back to the 1860's. I'm hoping that a revitalization will clean up the nasty areas and the trashy mobile homes in the middle of the town get cleaned up. Maybe now that jobs are getting scarce there will be less call for migrant (hence illegal aliens) living there. During the growing season its not good.

Other than that, I'm glad we moved here, I love my neighbors.
