Boiling Springs Reviews

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!
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 would like to see more effort put into the public schools; most of the schools, boiling springs middle, boiling springs 9th grade campus, and boiling springs high school, are very old. The town is becoming very over populated so its only necessary to fix up the schools and make them bigger, or knock them down completely and make new bigger schools for the overwhelming population. The night life is very active, I used to think it was safe, but very recently its become not safe. There are more crimes compared to just 5 years ago. Cars are being broke into, banks getting robbed, people getting killed, etc.
