Very nice community, although generally conservative. Downtown has very cute shops, and there are enough events, both year-round and by season that are family-friendly and fun for anyone!

I love the people and the community. Everyone is family and are reliable, caring, loving people. It is tight knit, small and private which I really like. In the past few years there have been many improvements, new restaurants and stores which are cute! There are also great places to take pictures! The farmer's market is great on a Saturday morning, and the best part is the night life.
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!
