Highway 25 isn't the affluent part of the metro. You don't appear to be familiar with the Greenville metro. Most of the middle class suburban /affluent areas are to the east of downtown around Pelham and Woodruff Roads. Powdersville is also booming west of 153.

I would say Hendersonville looks more poor and there aren't modern shopping centers like Greenville.

I think Highway 25 in Greenville is better than Spartanburg Highway (176) in Hendersonville.

That is why Greenville SC's slogan is Yeah THAT Greenville. 30 plus Greenvilles in this country.

Yes, I am familiar with the areas you describe, but you must take into account this area when considering Greenville as a whole. The areas you describe are nice, but still are not up to some in other parts of the country. I do like the newly renovated airport; but you almost always have to connect to get to your final destination and fares are relatively expensive.

Ok what is your evidence that those areas don't measure up to other places? .What makes other places better?

How are Hendersonville and Flat Rock suburbs better?

From my standpoint if it weird you are saying the Greenville burbs look poor if you live in a small. town with less jobs.

OK, I'm expressing my opinions, just as you did. You asserted Greenville suburbs don't stack up so I figured you had a specific reason or reasons for it. I'm trying to understand where you are coming from.

In my view, if you are talking about Highway 25 / Whitehorse Road, you probably aren't familiar with the nicer part of Greenville. Most transplants aren't going to end up around Highway 25, unless it up around Furman and Traveler's Rest.

Most people living on the eastside of Greenville's metro are rarely in the Highway 25 area.

We have been to the east side, the south side, the north side, and the west side on multiple occasions. When you are considering a place to live, it is very important to consider the metro area as a whole.

Ok, as I said , most transplants will not end up in Highway 25 area and most residents on the affluent eastside of the metro rarely are in that area. Yet you've made it the focal point.

Basically the only time that I am in the west side of the metro is when I'm driving down 123 to go over to the lakes and mountains in Pickens and Oconee counties and to Clemson University.

To me, the Greenville area is not nearly as scenic as the Flat Rock/Hendersonville/Asheville areas, but that's just my opinion. We always remark how much prettier it is once you cross over into NC on 25.

Reminds me of the college professor I heard about who was invited to give a talk at Eastern Carolina in Greenville NC. His secretary booked him a ticket to GSP. He had to take a taxi from the airport, six hours overnight in order to make it in time.
