Biggest way to upset people in the South is to try and change our culture.

Well, if I didn't want a change in culture etc., I'd stay where I am.

We wave etc when we drive by but that's it. I don't know if it's from unfriendliness or simply people just keep to themselves staying busy with their own lives.

Even in local small markets, neighbors will give a "hi" and that's it, even when you pass each other 10 times in the aisles.

I'm looking for more of a relaxed, laid back kind of lifestyle. We want to simplify, make life easier. Hoping we can do it in the south (and get away from the nasty winters).
Nailed it. Living in VT is so weird. People are cordial, but not friendly. I've lived here for 23 years and have been invited to friends homes maybe a dozen times. Like someone said, maybe its me! LOL.
Either way, I am planning a move to SC in a few years and look forward to friendlier, more open people and lower taxes!

What are the most liberal towns?

I think youre going to have a tough time finding a town considered liberal in SC... Columbia possibly... Charleston would be considered to have a more libertarian streak rather than liberal.
