Which of these towns would you choose to live in and why?

We're considering these 3 towns to retire to. We like to fish, kayak, and just enjoy the scenic outdoor sights. Do any of these towns have condos, townhouses, etc. if we wanted to avoid the maintenance of a house? Thanks.

Of the three, I'd choose Pendleton. It's closer to the shopping/dining/health care of Anderson, and is also closer to the larger city amenities of Greenville. As far as I know, it's not any more expensive than Seneca or Clemson. Not sure if there are many townhomes, etc., that don't cater to college students.

You might also check out the Portman Shoals and Northlake areas of Anderson. Both have condo/townhome inventory, are both located right on Lake Hartwell, and are just a few minutes away from the Seneca/Clemson/Pendleton area.

Seneca has become somewhat of a retirement destination. I was at a conference in Columbia a few months ago and ran into several couples from up North who decided to retire there and love it.

Clemson and Central are very much influenced by Clemson University. Pendleton is also, but probably not quite as much. The towns themselves are very small and many of the businesses and housing caters to CU students and staff. Some parents used to purchase condos or townhomes for their kids while in school and then sell them when they graduated.
Lake Keowee is a big (expensive) retirement area, but the addresses will be for West Union, Salem, etc.
Be prepared to drive to Greenville or Anderson for many things.

Hi, I am considering north western SC for a change of pace. I am looking for hills, lakes and a fun outdoor activities local to live in. I enjoy the NH lakes region and hope to find a similar feel. I would like to find a home near 100,000 that might require some cleaning up or remodeling. I would like to live within a 15 minute ride to a grocery store or less. I don't mind a longer drive for things less needed. I would like an area that doesn't close up as the season changes to to much. I would like a place where people do things and just don't eat out or go to a club. Also, a town where I would be safe living alone which means I have to have a neighbor to hear me scream if need be. I am hearing Pendelton is nice. Feedback please?
