Just wanted to get some input...IF and I say IF we decide to come to SC...would there be any good towns (not boonyville mind you)--that would be great for family inbetween Columbia SC and Also Charlotte NC.....so just in case we were to lose our jobs...we could still commute over to Charlotte.

Looking for the usual, quality of life, school system, crime, lots of shopping convienience..but more of a "halfway point to Charlotte"

there are no cities between Charlotte and Columbia. There are some towns, though.

IF (you say that like it's a bad thing) you decide to move to SC, the largest places roughly halfway between Columbia and Charlotte are probably Chester or Winnsboro.

but there's really not much halfway between Charlotte and Columbia. I'd look at the Lake Wateree area. You won't be near much, but it's the most desirable area around there, IMO.

Hey! There really is no small city halfway between Charlotte and Columbia...It's pretty rural along that stretch of I-77...You really have a choice between Chester and Winnsboro, if you don't mind smaller sized towns u should look more into those towns. Chester is a little closer to Charlotte but still kinda halfway and Winnsboro is a little closer to Columbia. Whenver you want to shop you have the choice of wanting to drive 30 minutes to Columbia or Charlotte from both, so thats not a bad thing.

Default BEtween Charlotte and Colombia

Greenville is between Charlotte and COlumbia. There are also some small town outside of Greenville. Simpsonville is not bad but is a little crowded. Fountain Inn is decent ( I live 5 mins outside of it) and is not too far away from civilization...

I don't know what kind of map you're looking at, but in Greenville isn't between Columbia and Charlotte. Greenville is about 100 miles west of both cities.

Default I live outside of Greenville

Hi. I live outside of Greenville (there are 2 I think... one is spelled Greeneville). If you use Interstate 385 to 26, Columbia is about an hour from me. If you use 385 to 85, Charlotte is about an hour and a half.

Greenville is more appropriately described as halfway between Atlanta and Charlotte. "Halfway" is not the same as "equidistant," and I believe you're referring to the latter, while the originator of this thread is referring to the former.

There are no cities between Columbia and Charlotte. Only the two small towns (Winnsboro & Chester) mentioned above. You might want to narrow your search to Columbia or Charlotte. Check out both cities and see what you think. They both have advantages and disadvantages. Good luck.

I would also advise living in one or the other.
