You aren't getting replies because you are pretty much listing all the suburbs of greenville. It would be better if you listed what you were looking for.

For example, there are several colleges, from 40k a year private school furman to itty bitty community college.

There is only one mall on Haywood road and all big box store shopping is concentrated in that area.

There are baptist churches on ever corner.

Most community events are concentrated in downtown greenville.

I second the easley/powdersville area. Wren/powdersville schools are highly sought. There is not much crime around. Plenty of activities for the kids. Churches, stores and eats are here. Anything not here is just approx 30 min drive. We moved here 3 1/2 yrs ago and don't look back!

You can go to easleyevents.com to see what events are happening in Easley. Of course it will be on a much smaller scale than what they have in Greenville (ex. outdoor movies, theatre etc.). We do have a new shopping center that consist of a new Wal Mart, Khol's, Five Guys Burgers and a few other small shops. There is some controversy as to what will come next.

I agree, that it depends on what you want. It is hard to answer all of your questions since all of these towns differ as to what they have. Anderson has a University & Clemson is nearby. Greenville has Furman & North Greenville Universities. North Greenville being closer to Travelers Rest. Greenville has the largest hospital, but Anderson has a large hospital, Easley has a hospital and there are several on the Eastside of Greenville as well. Doctors and churches are abundant as well.

If you want a sense of what's happening in the Greenville suburbs read the Patch sites:

Mauldin.Patch.com
Easley.Patch.com
Taylors.Patch.com

E-mail the editors and they'll give you the lowdown.

Not because we chose to live here, but, Greer would be it.

THe only think I would say Greer doesn't have is a movie theater or sports venue- you'd have to drive xx minutes depending on where in Greer you'd live. Everything else is here, but I personally wouldn't go bowling in Greer, it allows smoking - ick!
