Shortly before flooding rains soaked South Carolina in early October 2015, Huff Post Travel writer Carolyn Bass visited several key cities in the Palmetto State, including Greenville, and shared her experiences in the article, “Meanwhile Down in South Carolina.”
Like many who have visited South Carolina, and Greenville, SC, in particular, Bass returned home enchanted.
It’s easy to understand why. Greenville succeeds at delivering a high quality of life not only for its residents but also for its visitors. And I know firsthand how powerful experiencing that quality of life can be. After visiting for only three days, within seven months Laura and I were living here!
A major factor in our decision was Greenville’s strong economy. Local employment rates are driven by a healthy business environment, bringing income into the community to support cultural, recreational, and educational endeavors as well as retail and dining establishments. Together, these endeavors increase the broader community’s quality of life, attracting more employers (and their employees) to the area and further bolstering economic growth.
“Today, Greenville boasts a thriving economy,” writes Bass. “A pristine downtown shopping, dining, and business center; a dozen or more haute cuisine restaurants, and a riverfront park and walking trail where people of all ages gather to enjoy the cascading waters of the crystal clear Reedy River.”
These are the same things that drew Laura and me to Greenville and make this city a good place to invest in real estate.
