Spartanburg County Reviews

Well I have lived in Spartanburg my entire life! I have watched Spartanburg evolve so much! Downtown we now have a golf course with obstacles advertising spartanburg local places. The golf course is for children to come play and have fun. We have new parks for our community to give children a safe place to enjoy their childhood. I loving the growth that my hometown is developing. I have also had the pleasure of attending The University of South Carolina Upstate , what an amazing campus we have downtown. The George is where the business students attend and the facility is just amazing! I enjoyed my time there and being able to learn in such a great environment.

This area has great subdivisions for families. The houses are quality, and the people are respectable. The area has begun to expand, more stores and amenities are being developed each year. There isn't much of a downtown, but the safe neighborhoods make up for it. I love our county!
Spartanburg is beautiful. Downtown Spartanburg always has something to do, whether it be watching a musician, or ice skating, or spring fling! The roads are not in the best condition but hopefully they will fix that while it is under construction.
