Duncan is a small town in Spartanburg, SC the people are very nice, the public school systems are excellent. But, there isn't much to do around here for fun, but it is close to Spartanburg and Greenville where there are lots of things to do. Duncan is a growing town, many companies are moving in and there are many housing developments being built here. Duncan is home to the James F. Byrnes High School Rebels which is a fantastic school.

Duncan is a very nice town with lots of diversity from an ethnic point of view to a moral point of view. Everywhere you go, you'll always be treated fairly whether it's a fast-food restaurant or grocery store. The people in Duncan, SC are overall nice people. They treat others (whether or not who they are) with the same respect as they give others. Though there isn't much to do at night, there is always something to do in Duncan throughout the day.
Small town, low crime level, rising home values, the halfway mark between spartanburg and greenville.
