They are coming by the busload!

People are coming to the Greenville area from near and far!  The Greenville Convention and Visitors Bureau is doing a great job attracting people from the adjoing states especially the Atlanta area. Their new advertising campaign in Atlanta called "2 Hours to Greenville"  is designed to entice empty nesters or young couples into a short drive to the Upstate.  Atlanta is only 2 hours from Greenville and the area residents will see the guerilla marketing on gas station pumps, pizza boxes, grocery carts, coffee cups and at the web site http://www.2hourstogreenville.com/

Another local organization called The Upstate Alliance is promoting the Upstate with their new site http://www.iwasblownaway.com/, which features testimonials from locals as well as people who have relocated to the Upstate.  Like most of our clients the people that have written testimonials are "blown away" by what the area has to offer.  Whether you like moutains, lakes, food or shopping the Greenville area has it all! 

I spent the weekend at Lake Keowee with it's warm jade water and puffy white clouds in the sky it is like heaven on earth. This is one of the most beautiful lakes in the upstate SC area. The lake is huge with approximately 300+ miles of shoreline so it never feels crowded even on a holiday weekend. 

We are truly blessed to live in this country so be thankful no matter where you are!
