Less traffic, lower cost of living, better location, better weather, close to mountains.
Wow, opinions are greatly different arent' they?

Three of my top 5 cities to live in are ones you don't like lol.

I met a lot if people that moved from great places like Chicago, LA, Las Vegas, Alaska, NY... to Greenville area, but mainly due to high costs and traffic.

That's where I'm torn, I want to have the value of my houses go up, but one of the first things I tell outsiders that I love most about the area is that regular people can afford homes here. On the other hand I bought multiple homes in the West End to take advantage of the values going up. I guess you can't have everything.

Well that's probably why Charleston has been outperforming NOLA in recent years. I love NOLA, but I don't necessarily equate greatness with having a tourist district notable for drunken revelry.

The French Quarter is a minefield of excesses. It caters to debauchery cravings that humans tend to have. Sure there's one or two good restaurants, churches, and hotels in Nola, but out of a two block radius, you can be robbed or worse. Most of the businesses there revolve around binge drinking, transvestites, and voodoo trinkets. Of course, night Nola is completely different from day Nola, but one common thing that is in all of the French Quarter is booze, something you can't quite equate to downtown Charleston on such an excessive level.

What are some of the things these places have that would be nice for Greenville to have that would not decrease the quality of life?

^^^ what could greenville use or need? higher paying jobs in most fields. but it does have a low cost of living, so i understand that it kind of balances itself out.

If they could make Haywood Mall into more of a SouthPark that would be nice. Upgrade the Belk to a flagship store. Add a Nordstrom and a Cheesecake Factory. Expand Macy's. And renovate the mall to make it look nicer, especially on the outside. So it would have a trendier, more upscale vibe.

Greenville obviously has competitve wages or not so many people would relocate here including tons of engineers.
Not that I dont believe you, but do you have any numbers/figures to back this up?
