Researching areas to retire. Would like recommendations for areas that have great mountain views, are safe and near good medical care.


Thanks for any input.

Thanks Clever. Can you be more specific on the areas like towns or communities that are nice?

Traveler's Rest, 15 minutes north of Greenville. It has a hospital and the main Greenvlile hospital isn't far away.

Seneca / Walhalla area in Oconee County. Not sure what your budget is but there are some fantastic lake neighborhoods on Lake Keowee, a clear water lake, in Seneca. This is a popular retirement area in SC. Seneca has a nice smaller hospital.

One of the nicest retirement areas I've ever been around is Tryon, NC. Directly on the border of NC/SC.

Most of the upper Upstate. You can mountain views as far "south" as Anderson.

The Upstate are the counties in the northwestern corner of South Carolina, primarily along the I-85 corridor. It includes Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, Clemson, Easley, Seneca, Pickens, and many other towns and cities in between.

From east to west it goes along 85 from Cherokee to Oconee Counties and north to south from Greenwood/Abbeville/Laurens Counties up to the NC/SC border.

Take a look at Landrum in Spartanburg County as well. Its not far from Spartanburg where they have a good health system and great mountain views. Also most anywhere in Oconee County north of Hwy 123 (Seneca, Walhalla).

There are some beautiful areas in high hills along Hartwell just across the lake from Clemson that provide some mountain views, lake views, mountain setting and actually pretty affordable as well.
