My family and I may be relocating to the Greenville/Clemson/Seneca area for my husband's job in the next few months. This will be our 8th relocation. We are moving from the Charlotte area. My husband and I were familiar with the Seneca/Clemson area from about 20+ years ago when we were visiting close friends that lived there at the time but I'm sure everything has changed about the area since then.

Our first priority would be a good school district for our kids (ages 7 & 11). I have one presently in elementary and one rising to middle school next year. We are moving in from a really good district with high parent involvement and would hope to find something similar. We are looking for a single family home in possibly a golf course community. We're not big "boat" people, but wouldn't mind learning and would consider lake life. Our house budget would be about 400-600K. Another major priority would be for an active family oriented community. We are coming from a development that has many families and children which makes it easier for our kids to acclimate to the new area.

Any recommendations or constructive advice would be welcome. Thanks!

What do you mean by a family oriented community? Are you looking for a subdivision with an active HOA and a bunch of family activities? Or are you looking for a family oriented town with lots of kids' activities? There aren't a lot of big HOA subdivisions oriented towards families in this area. There are a lot of close knit small towns with tons of family activities. If you attend church, many area churches offer lots of family stuff. Even if you don't, there are plenty of other family related things to do, especially if you are outdoorsy.

We would like to find a community or subdivision with a large percentage of families and children in residence. We have relocated numerous times and have found that a "kid-centric" residential area offers more of what we are looking for as a family, i.e., parks, pools, outdoor activities, restaurants. Where we reside right now, many of the children all attend the same school making it easier to socialize. I know that "lake life" is quite desirable and popular in that area, but the homes are not situated to give a "neighborhood" feel.

SnoozieSue, where did you end up moving to?

My husband and I are also looking into the areas between Clemson and Greenville as I'll be working in Seneca; however, we don't really want to live in Seneca. We both really enjoy Greenville, but aren't sure the commute to Seneca would be worth what we'd gain from living near Greenville. However, we would rather live in an area we enjoy and commute to work then have a quick commute and not enjoy the community we actually live in. We are in our late twenties/early thirties, about to start a family so are looking for a family-friendly community. I'd love to hear how your search has been going or if you all have settled on an area. Thanks!
