And, your economic acumen tells you that people don't live right off of Wade Hampton and work in Greenville? You can look at a lot of facts/figures, to date, Jam is the only person on this board who has a coherent argument about average income between Columbia & Greenville. It is true that Columbia has a higher income, it is not by much, but factually true. It is also true that Richland County has a population that is more educated than Greenville.

But, to get back on point and out of the garbage comments posted by Gsupstate, both cities are places where folks could live happily. As I stated earlier before Gsupstate started the mindless garbage for the 10,000th time about Columbia, neither city will be confused with one like Charlotte. If you are looking for a mid sized city, 99.9% of the people could live happily in either place.

Again, not sure why this thread was started in a Greenville forum, seems like someone wanted to bait a fight, most likely a past Greenville supporter who moved away and now trashes the place. So, why would anyone listen to a poster like that?

We are 45 minutes from Clemson, and we have enough museums personally...

Your mixing up North Greenville County from Greenville proper.

O and for the person who was complaining that Greenville's skyline is "government funded"...what are you saying?

The only one that would be gov funded in City Hall...duh.

And if your thinking all were built with the help of city's economic development dept. What city does not?

I changed jobs a couple of years ago and had a job offer in Columbia and one in Greenville. Compensation was similar (more $$ in Columbia, better benefits in Greenville). In the end, I liked the job offered in Greenville a bit better, I have family in the area, and I think the overall quality of life is a bit better in Greenville. We chose Greenville.

Columbia is a bit hotter and more humid in the afternoon than Greenville. Those 3 or 4 degrees and 5% humidity don't sound like much but they are the difference between uncomfortable and intolerable to me. Greenville is also close enough to the mountains (under an hour) to make it an easy drive to escape the heat on the weekends. Escaping the heat in Columbia on the weekend is going to be a 3+ hour drive to the mountains or a 2+ hour drive to the beach.

I'm not saying Columbia isn't a great place - Greenville was just the pick of our family when we were faced with the choice.
Thanks for sharing the info
