Hi! I have to relocate to Greenwood, SC this summer, and my research shows that there is a significant crime problem there. Do any of you have recommendations on neighborhoods that are nice and relatively safe in Greenwood? Are there any neighborhoods I should avoid? I have young children, so this is especially important for me.

Hello! Yes, the crime rate is quite high in Greenwood, but when you're living here you quickly realize that it's mostly contained to certain areas. Use common sense and don't mix with the wrong people, and you'll probably be fine.
Two of the nicest neighborhoods in Greenwood are Gatewood and the Lodge Grounds. Of course, they're some of the pricier as well, but if you're just renting it ought not to be too bad. My family stayed at a very nice condo in Gatewood a few years ago, and our rent was $600 a month.
If these neighborhoods seem too expensive though, just use common sense and avoid areas that look ghetto, really.

Let me know if you have any other questions, I'd be happy to answer!
