There's one thing I must say about Greenville and adding certain things that would make a positive impact. I know people say they don't want another Charlotte or Atlanta. I don't think Greenville would ever get that big. That is one thing that drew us here was the size of Greenville. I think a few key things would make Greenville complete. I know people say you can travel to Charlotte or Atlanta for these thing but it would nice to be able to play in your own backyard. I'd like to someplace like the Epicentre in Charlotte. http://epicentrenc.com/

Here is one previous threads about it:

Where should Upstate Put A Large Amusement Park?

I would love to have an epicenter style development built. I don't think it would hurt local entertainment options either. It would draw more people into town from farther away resulting in more business for everyone.

One to add to the list, a replacement for the handlebar. I think the West Greenville village would be perfect for it. I really nice indoor/outdoor skate park for the teens would be cool too.

I'd put Greenville in the top 25 in the Nation for sure, it's got a lot to offer, but my top five would be 1) Mt. Pleasant, SC 2) Austin, TX 3) Knoxville, TN 4) Asheville, NC 5) Raleigh, NC

Everyone is going to have their own opinions about such a subject though.

Are you talking about a place like the Handlebar? What type of music place are you looking for?

The traffic sucks there. It is buggier there. The tourists and all the transplants kind of take it over so you lose that hometown vibe. It felt more like a museum than a place to live.

I could be happy in Chucktown but I can be happy anywhere. The city you live in isn't what brings happiness. Happiness is a mindset. I will be happy, by God. I'm just saying Charlestons gets hyped up and obvious flaws are overlooked. It isn't utopia or superior to living in Greenville. The only advantage is being near the beach.


Greenville is probably the worst place to live in South Carolina. I would rather live in one of the rest stops on 95 then to live in Greenville....

Big Homeless problem that needs to be taken care of before the word "superior" can be associated..
