IF there are any areas I did not add... please add them. I just looked on the map to see the areas. I have read to stay away from western greenville areas. So looks like greer, mauldin, five forks, and simpsonville are the top. I assume these are all close to shopping and such?

When people are saying Wade Hampton, what part of town are they referring to? From what I can see, it runs pretty far.

Maybe add, Woodruff Rd (Greenville), Easley, or Taylors to your list to see what response you get.

Wade Hampton is like Taylors in that it's a census designated place, but not an actual town. It lies between Greenville and Taylors along Wade Hampton Blvd.

The only real negative that we saw for TR is that TR High isn't rated as well as some of the others.

How are the schools in Taylors? Does it have a Target?

There is a new(ish) Target between Taylors and Greer on Wade Hampton Boulevard.

Wade Hampton High School is above average by SC standards, and the Fine Arts Center is next door.

Default areas

I read today that Travelers Rest is revitalizing thanks to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. It has always been a small quaint town. Definitely more rural but not too far out.

It takes us 15-20 minutes to get to downtown Greenville from TR depending on how we hit the lights. Lowes/Cherrydale/Home Depot are even closer. It's about the same time to Target on Wade Hampton and the drive is mostly along pretty back roads with little traffic stress. Even Haywood Mall is only 1/2 hour away. All of that doesn't seem too much of a burden considering how lovely it is out in the country.

OTOH - I don't have to worry about schools, so that might be a bigger factor that puts TR consistently on the bottom.

YMMV
