Southern Oaks is the Easley area and is pretty nice layout, though it has some drainage issues if we get a lot of rain when the Bermuda is dormant. In the Travelers Rest area there is Furman University course which outside some of the true private courses is one of the nicest courses in the area in my opinion. There are lots of courses in the general Greenville area, of varying quality. Most are open to the public but their are few members only courses.

Cardinal Woods is nice. I have several friends who live there & they never complain about noise.

May I ask where you ended up buying? We found some SK Builder areas that we are very interested in, today. Castle Rock's views are stunning!

Everyone is so friendly and so much to do! Now I just wish the weather would cooperate!
Be thankful you didn't shop around in February! Seriously, expect to get a lot more rain than you experienced in Chicago, but you will have very little snow and much milder winters. This has been a very wet year so far, but the average annual rainfall is 50, about 20 inches more than Chicago.

Spring rain turns everything green and will make the flowers grow!

Love Blue Ridge! Checking out a home there today for a client. Feels like you can touch the mountains there.
TR has come a long way just in the year I have lived here, as has the whole area,actually. Lookign forward to more progress!

BigRedBeth--do rentals show up very often in TR? I have been seeing very few. Just wondering if we should go ahead and try to reserve something now instead of waiting until we arrive in the area in the summer.

Also, I'm confused about Blue Ridge. Is it a neighborhood? An area?

The Blue Ridge I was referring to is an area of Greer, Hausfrau1. There is a development called Blue Ridge Plantaion that is near Lake Robinson.

You are correct that there are not that many rentals in TR; if you find one you like might be better to grab it now.

Wasn't sure where to put this but since this thread did have TR in the title I thought I'd post it here. For those in the TR area or considering it there is a new Meetup group: We are TR...on the Move! (Travelers Rest, SC) - Meetup

My husband and I are headed to Travelers Rest (general Greenville area) the first week of July to search for a new town for semi-retirement as well.

I'd love your input on Traveler's Rest...what made you fall in love with it? What's your general impression of the community at large?
