In the past few months, several manufacturing companies have announced re-locating to the Upstate area (Greenville-Spartanburg). Even a company from Cleveland is moving here. Check out the Greenville-Spartanburg sub-forum for more info.

BTW, you will love it here in SC. I was born and raised in Ohio, but being in the Navy had not lived there since I was 18. I visit family there several times a year, but avoid visiting in the winter!

My family and I are in the same situation as you here in Wisconsin. If you find this "small town" that we are looking for,would you kindly let me know? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I second this post. Being from WI it is so nice to be on a lake... in winter... that doesnt entail needing a snowmobile to get out on.... and fishing doesnt require a hole in the ice and someone yelling "tip up!!"

Seriously this area worked for us as we wanted to be near/on a lake while also being near the "city", and only a couple hour drive if we want to visit Chareston or the ocean for a day. Been here 2.5 yrs and love it.

For the various midwesterners on this thread--winters here are great. Sure summers are long and hot, but one doesnt shovel humidity...

Watch out for the humidity! Lived here all my life and it still gets to me.
Recommend you rent for a while before you buy. Also the advice on jobs is very good. SC economy is in the doldrums and this is a right to work state, so pay, benefits and job security are not as good.

Default Moving to SC area from OHIO

Hello,
We are wanting to move to SC area from Lima, OH. Husband and I are originally from small farming towns Coldwater/Celina Ohio. We are becoming empty nesters and want a change in life. I keep saying this cannot be what life is suppose to be? Work, home, supper, tv, yard work then bed? No way can I keep living in an area where there is nothing to do. Life has more to it then this!!! We are ready to move and start our lives.
How do we look for jobs and where to live, prior to moving there? We have visited the area and love the area. I don't want a big city, but want something with jobs, close to ocean; 30 min, 45, etc.

Where did you move from? Can you help us on where to move, where jobs are, etc.? We are a great hardworking couple!

My husband is a foreman for a roofing company- repairman, and I have large amount experience in office administrative; accts pay, rec, payroll, etc.

Thanks a million!

Tammy
