AS someone once said a picture is worth a................................... Those are some of the reasons my family and I have stayed here for over 8 years now. There are a million more words to describve why but I ran out of film LOL. Hope all enjoy these pics and please come visit us. Oh by the way get more of an idea about our area when you watch George Clooneys movie Leatherheads. It was filmed in the upstae just as the movie Radio was with Cuba Gooding Jr.

looking to buy in upstate greenville what areas should I avoid? looking for safe upscale gated community with a min of one acer lot newer construction 4bed,4bath,pool best schools possible near or around Furman University.I see that there is a great deal of crime around the Cherrydale area with lots of store hold ups there was a girl recently raped while walking in Greer so pretty scary stuff but we still love the people of greenville and the conservative way of life therefore we are looking for the best place possible we want to be away from main roads strip malls ect.not looking for dense population.don't want to be near Saludad either we liked the cliffs,keowee,montebello areas keeping the above in mind would you all be so kind to give your honest advise.

Greenville is nice but I'll take Asheville Any day! Every walk of life living in relative harmony in the heart of the blue ridge mountains. What more can you ask for?

Can I use part of one of the pictures above for a local blog my wife is doing? I could go downtown and take one myself, but it would save me 30 minutes if I could use yours.
