Art123 has the right idea- many of these topics have been discussed many times over. There are three large lakes about 45 minutes to an hour from Greenville- Hartwell, Keowee, and Jocassee. They are absolutely beautiful, with Jocasee in particular nestled into the surrounding mountains. There are some smaller lakes closer in, although they are not as picturesque.

My take (as a visitor) is that the area east of Greenville, such as Simpsonville and Mauldin are more typical suburbs, with a lot of shopping and congestion. To the west and north, areas such as Pickens, Easley, and Travelers Rest are decidedly more rural in feel.

To me, Greenville is unique in that the downtown is surprisingly multi-cultural, due in large part to the companies here, such as BMW and Michelin, yet you can be in the rural south in a matter of minutes of leaving town. The mountains are close by, which is great for the outdoor enthusiast, with a number of gorgeous parks clustered along Rte 11 at the base of the mountains.

I suggest you take some time to read through a number of the old posts here to learn about the good and bad of the area. And I always suggest that people visit an area as many times as possible before moving- what's good for one person doesn't always work for another.
