Boiling Springs is an amazing town! The people here are friendly, diverse and huge sports fans! The community is growing at a rapid pace and i love it! With businesses continuing to thrive it has positively impacted overall property value. It was important for me to raise my children in a community where I know they will be safe. We chose to live in Boiling Springs because of the low crime rate. The school system is one of the best that Spartanburg, South Carolina has to offer! The kids here thrive because they are being taught, in my opinion, by some of the best teachers in South Carolina! Boiling Springs is the place to be!
Review Boiling Springs
I live in Boiling Springs, SC, and it isn't a bad place. There is a big variety of restaurants and shops to choose from. The main part of the town is located on highway 9, which gets busy in mornings and evenings, but you can find almost anything along this road. Lots of construction is always going on, because it is growing! The high school is getting crowded and is planning on building a new school. The people are friendly and sweet. The best place to eat is zaxby's. The school district is very nice and one of the best in the state.
I like that Boiling Springs is very quiet and friendly small town. The residents are very nice and helpful. They are also friendly , are able to tell if your not from around there in which they welcome you with a very nice warm greeting. I also like that this town is not to far from everything, it is kind of near the big cities. For example Spartanburg and Greenville. The town is also very city like. It has most of the big stores like Wal-Mart, Bi-Lo and Ingles. There are many restaurants to eat from like Zaxbys, Grapevine, Applebees and etc
