I've lived in Fountain Inn South Carolina almost my entire life. Growing up there until now I've seen this city grow in so many ways! Fountain Inn has always been one that has been very welcoming, no matter age, race, or religion. The citizens are always willing to help no matter the circumstances. If one has children, there are always activities that they can join such as recreational activities, children's bible study at different churches, and also pageants and parades. Main Street Fountain Inn is growing each and everyday. New boutiques and restaurants are taking their places in the city. So, if one gets the opportunity, make Fountain Inn a stop for the family!

Very nice rural, family friendly place to live! It is a good commute away from much of the Greenville area busyness (jobs, entertainment). But it is very close to the main shopping and restaurants of Simpsonville! People are very friendly. The schools are great.
There is an abundance of culture and diversity here in Fountain Inn. I have been a citizen of this humble county for over a decade. I have seen a lot of diversity, being autistic myself, and felt welcomed. There are several schools and gyms for kids to find their educations and summer vacation niches. I graduated from one a whole year early, and have just gotten my Associate's. The library is perfect place to find a quiet place and the shopping district has the best ice cream.
