I disagree. There is a lot going on in Greenville.

Don't judge the city on SCDOT's inefficiency. The interstates in SC can be a hodge-podgey mess in certain places. I-20 and I-95 are particularly bad when it comes to that.

I was thinking the same thing. If people judged Charlotte by I85, especially between I77 and IKEA Boulevard, the city would not grow by another person. And, if they drove through the city at night, I am sure the burned out lights would not make a good impression.

Greenville - lived here almost 8 years. to me has been very cliquey in terms of the social environment. you're either a.) from here or b.) went to clemson and you're in like flynn. i just stay because of my job mostly.

Charleston - my kind of city but there are definitely parts of the city that cry depressing for sure.

Columbia - TOO HOT. the few times i've been down to Cola be it spring summer or fall it has been obnoxiously warm. could not handle that.

Myrtle Beach - purely a vacation destination. went down there for the first time ever this past labor day weekend and noticed that it's a great place to have fun in for a weekend but not the type of place i've enjoy living in necessarily.

to me the rock hill area would be ideal due to it's proximity to Charlotte.

That sounds silly to me.
Q: Why?
A: I frequently meet people who recently relocated to the Upstate (they are not from here) and have absolutely no affiliation with Clemson University.

I'm not from here, and didn't go to Clemson or Furman. I fit in pretty good, and most would say I'm pretty successful.

I've lived and been all over SC for the past 25+ years. It's hard to beat the upstate...but I'm a mountain person. Hate the beach.
