Hi. As you have heard several times before, you will find no "cities" in between Charlotte and Columbia. Just a stretch of 77. However, if you were to live, say Blythewood maybe, you would be maybe 10 minutes away from Columbia and maybe 35-40 from Charlotte (not a bad drive either). Blythewood is a very pretty, semi-rural area with easy access to plenty to do. That is my suggestion. Winnsboro is much smaller, more of a drive to get to "things to do" and the schools could be better. Blythewood on the other hand is in a very good part of Richland 2. Good luck.

I'd say Rock Hill, just south of Charlotte.

I second Rock Hill--it's far enough outside of Charlotte to not be SUPER congested and it's a college town so there's more to do than a 'one horse town.'

Greenville is a great city to visit near Simpsonville. Simpsonville is on I-385, a few miles south of I-85 and a suburb of Greenville.

If you like outlet shopping, Gaffney has the Prime Outlet mall right off of I-85.

Greenville is not really 'in between' Charlotte & Simpsonville. I would agree on Gaffney or I'd suggest Spartanburg.

If you're taking the interstate it is.

While Greenville may not be considered "in between" Charlotte and Simpsonville, most people would travel through part of the city on their way from one to the other. That is the most logical path to take, although there are other optional routes which take much longer. Without additional criteria regarding "a nice city to visit," it is difficult to know precisely what the inquiry is referring to. Of the cities along the path, none offer more overall options for visitors than Greenville, not to mention it is as nice a city as any along that stretch, by most people's standards. It is merely a suggestion based on very little criteria.

I understand your point, and you're right, the criteria offered up in the question was very broad. I guess I looked at is say someone asked the same question, good places to visit between Charlotte & Camden, well technically the NE part of Columbia would be part of that trip, but the route wouldn't really take you into Columbia to see the heart of the city. That was my line of thinking in suggesting Greenville was not really in between Simpsonville & Charlotte, you might see the southeast portion of Greenville, but you wouldn't see the heart of the city.
