Greenville is a great deal larger to start with.

Greenville is closer to the geographic center of the Upstate region, so has more corporate activity and that has drawn other things to the city, such as higher end restaurants, shopping, etc. I like Spartanburg, I really do and they have done quite a bit with their own downtown. Spartanburg has more institutions of higher learning within its city limits, but Greenville's are a bit larger. Greenville has quite a few desirable older neighborhoods in different parts of town, plus lots of residential options in downtown proper and in the 'burbs. Spartanburg's better in-town living is largely concentrated in or near Converse College (Converse Heights) and toward the east from there.

Either city will provide you with a comfortable, attractive home and most, if not all the amenities. Greenville, being a bit larger and more a center of commerce for the area, has more of all that.

It seems to me that Spartanburg is a tad bit cooler than Greenville during the summer months, but I can't easily find any data to back that up.

Right now they are 1 degree cooler. Seems to me Spartanburg gets more severe weather than Greenville does.

My advice....And as a native of the Upstate for 20 + yrs...This might be your first stop inquiring ....But please don't limit yourself to this forum and save yourself the pain of having to read these whinny sounding posts. Greenville is 10 fold what Spartanburg wishes it could be in all categories A-Z...period. Hope that helps....

Jealousy is creeping in from the west again. Have lived here in the Upstate for 40 plus years off and on. I believe that- "its all about you", helped the temp. in Spartanburg drop two degrees and made it even cooler. Thanks !!!

I had a feeling I might start a minor war but that wasn't my intention. I (we) liked Fountain Inn area on our visit last year but someone suggested we check out Boiling Springs which we haven't yet. Thanks for the replies.......
