Love Blythewood, SC! Blythwood is only a few minutes from the state capital, Columbia. If you're in need of a more rural environment you can drive through the areas of farmland but you're still close to all the big city amenities. There are several housing developments with that great low country feel. Most of the public schools nearby have great ratings. But if private school is the direction you lean there are many great alternatives nearby.

Blythewood, South Carolina is a small town but is slowly building its way up! There isn't much to do around here, but I believe that this town has the potential to become something great just as its neighboring town, Columbia. This town has plenty of food and school options, but there is a complete lack of entertainment. Once there are a few entertainment spots for friends and families to have fun, Blythewood would be one of the best towns in South Carolina!
I absolutely love the small town feel of Blythewood. It is growing very fast but it is not without it's small town quirks. Grace's Coffee is the best coffee around. Our town puts on some great functions from 4th of July celebrations to Farmer's market. It is the best suburb of Columbia, without any doubt!
