If you had the choice to live in Charleston or Greenville and money wasn't an issue... which would you choose. The schools must be good and there should be a lot of family stuff to do. Outdoor recreation, sports, etc. Commute isn't an issue either. Just a nice, fun, safe and well educated area.....
If there are any schools in these areas that are good, can you also reccomend?
Thanks a bunch!!!

Well I have lived in both places and now reside in Greenville for me personally I love Charleston but to visit but prefer living in Greenville. I go down to Charleston about once every two months to hang out while my husband serves for his Reserve Duty at the Air Force Base and having lived there before it is fun to go visit and do things. I love having my home be Greenville because I love the weather up here and there is way less traffic around here. Traffic is a factor even on the weekends in good Ole' Chuck Town especially when traveling on the freeway to go to downtown or Mount Pleasant or going to Folly Beach etc... you need to figure that in when you do stuff scheduling wise the traffic is constant and you can always, always count on an accident on I-26 on a Saturday. Both places are great and offer good things but I think Greenville wins in more ways and has better school districts and you can get way more land and house for the money. That is just my personal opinion though from living in both places! Good Luck

Oh one more thing I wanted to add I think G-Ville has better options when it comes to shopping grocery wise. Charleston has a Whole Foods but it is located in Mount Pleasant and has a Earth Fare located James Island area, both are a trek to get to and from and can be a hassle. Greenville has a Whole Foods, Earth Fare, Garner's Natural Market & Cafe, Fresh Market and Bloom that offer good choices for good quality meats, cheeses, produce etc...
