Easley is an amazing place to live because you are close to everything you need without having to fight traffic in the bigger neighboring city. Education is amazing with colleges such as Clemson and Furman nearby. Three beautiful lakes are convenient for boating and relaxing. Mountains are 30 min away for hiking and outdoor adventures!

For being a small town in South Carolina, Easley locals seem to all be familiar with each other. Places like Bleu Voodoo and The Pint Station have turned Easley into the booming little city it is today. The quiet yet busy feel the city of Easley gives is in my opinion ideal for someone looking for the private yet busy lifestyle. Traffic tends to be minimal making commute time to most areas reasonably low. The school systems can use improvement but overall the staff is very compassionate about what they do and how it affects the community.
Some of the Schools in The Pickens County school system are good but the District needs work overall, the elementary schools are fine but Gettys middle school is way over crowded i would recommend sending your child to a different middle school and Easley High School is so big that students can go a day without being talked to by their teacher this needs work.... But the Anderson Districts are very technology based and keep your students on track towards future jobs in technology.
