What areas do you think are the nicest, north (Travelers Rest) or Greer or south (Simpsonville area), west area (Easley)? Based on views, rolling hills, the towns , etc. Thanks in advance. I'd appreciate your input.

Just about any part of this region has quite scenic areas. There are bucolic, pastoral parcels of land (with mountain views) in the Taylors area, lush forests just about everywhere, etc. But for my money, the Falls Park/Cleveland Park corridor is hard to beat. You've got a river, creeks, wooded ravines, lush landscaping, flowers, and even a waterfall right in the city!

What do you think about Powdersville & Peidmont as far as a place to live?
Is there much rolling hills in the Greenville area? If so where? Just curious because I know Knoxville, TN has a lot. Greenviile appears to be much nicer. Thanks for the help.

Greenville is right at the gateway to the Appalachians - they start in northern Greenville County. The Travelers Rest area is hillier and closer to the mountains than Greenville proper. Otherwise, the terrain is what I would call gently rolling, with some steep ravines where rivers and creeks run.

The Powdersville/Piedmont areas are gently rolling, and much of the area has a pastoral feel to it. Powdersville is more of a modern-day suburb with most of the amenities and good schools. I don't have much personal knowledge of Piedmont, but it seems to have more of a less-affluent small town feel.

Thank you, that gives me a good picture.

Powdersville is to Greenville as Maryville is to Knoxville.

Small bedroom community where the population growth is driven by a school district with a great reputation. Powdersville is smaller and more rural but the idea is similar.

Isn't Powdersville closer to Greenville, then Maryville is to Knoxville though?
