Hello,

We are visiting Greenville this upcoming weekend and I'm hoping to get some info before we arrive. We are scoping out the area as a relocation possibility and I want to focus on the right neighborhoods.

We are interested in a community with sidewalks that has a lot of resources for a young family but still has a classic feel. I want to avoid suburbs and new sub-divisions. I like city neighborhoods with more individual houses and yards than apartments. And I would like to be within walking distance of a walkable business district. Are there any neighborhoods like this that are still affordable with reasonable crime rates that we should be sure to see on our visit?

Thanks for your help.

I would check out the North Main Street area north of downtown and the Augusta Road area south of downtown.

Default G'vlle

G-Man is right on target. Both of these should provide what you are looking for depending on price of course. The prices in the North Main area vary depending on how close in to town you want to be.

My suggestion would be the same as above! If you want a nice neighborhood with character, both of those areas are perfect. I live in the N. Main area and if I decide to settle down in Greenville I'll definitely be looking for a home around here or around Augusta Road. Most of the streets have sidewalks, and the few that don't have little traffic and walking on the street isn't a problem. We didn't have a sidewalk on our street for the longest time and I still don't think it's completely necessary...but it looks nice.

The only thing is...both areas are within walking distance to downtown, but that walk can be a little long (from my dad's house on Earle Street I'd say it's about a 10-15 minute walk). I can't put a name on some other areas, but if you drive around and branch out a little from downtown you'll find some other neighborhoods that are close.

Along East Parkins Mills Road west of Laurens Road/Verdae Blvd. intersection would be another good suggestion.

Love, Love, Love this city!!

This was our first visit and it was enough to confirm our interest in the city. We will be making future visits to narrow down on neighborhoods. Thus far, I'd say the N. Main area is more to our taste. Augusta Rd neighborhoods are beautiful, but felt more suburban.

We will not be coming back down until August, so I have plenty of time to gather neighborhood info.

Let me know of any more suggestions. Thanks!
