Hello all, I am considering moving to Greenville, and was wondering if you guys could tell me what would be the best part of Greenville for a young couple with a 2yr old. We would like to live in a good part of town, with shopping, and dining, within walking distance. I plan on Attending Greenville community college.

I would like a 2 bedroom apt, and my price range is no more than 650 a month. If at all possible, i would prefer the apartment look nice, and be in one of your low crime areas. And also, what are the major roads that have the most shopping, and dining. Thank you all for the help.

Will let someone better informed help you with where to live. I live in a great area, but walkable it is not.

The two main roads with the most restaurants and shopping that come to mind are Woodruff Road and Haywood Road (where the Haywood Mall is located). Then there's Wade Hampton Blvd. Those three probably contain the most. Main Street in downtown Greenville is more walkable and has wonderful restaurants and some very nice stores and galleries too.

May I suggest White Horse Rd? It may remind you of Texas. Ole!

If you want walkable, less expensive, and safe, look at places around Augusta Rd's Historic Lewis Plaza. I know there's townhouses/apartments behind the Plaza that are older, and could very well be in that price range. Additionally, it's a great area, and safe. I would imagine that the living spaces may be somewhat dated, but probably in good shape?

This part of Augusta Rd is walkable, with barber shops, restaurants, drug stores, and retail options within an easy and short walk. It's also an easy 5-7 minute drive to downtown's core.
