There's a nice sense of community in the part of Greenville we currently reside. The housing and neighborhoods are kept up to date and clean and there's a steady influx of new jobs from new businesses moving to the area. There's also a floriishing downtown area which as been cleaned up in recent year and a great amount of events/places to attend. However the additional building of stores and businesses on main roads has increased frustrating traffics and caused an increase of wrecks. Overall, it's a great place to grow up and raise a family.

There is everything in my area. The popular stores would be in the mall and everything thats really popular is on one road. This allows easy access to lots of stores, but there is a lot of traffic. This really allows you to get anything you need and its very convenient.
There are many great restaurants in the area. I have found only one issue and that is that they aren't opened really late which would be nice on the weekends. Besides that there are a lot of good restaurants in the area, especially in downtown.
