- Town in South Carolina
Rating 3.4 out of 5 68 reviews
Greenwood is a nice place to settle down in. There are tons of restaurants but that is about it. We have a movie theatre, stores to shop in, plenty of grocery stores, and a bowling alley. There is plenty of Southern Hospitality in this town.
I have lived in Greenwood all my life. It is not a very big town but it is not a very small town. There are plenty of places to eat, make various purchases, find entertainment. I enjoy the parks and the library. There are various grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations. There are a lot of different people in Greenwood. There used to be a lot of shopping stores but some have closed due to Covid or other reasons. There are various construction projects going on currently. Overall, I enjoy living in Greenwood and will miss it when I go away to college.
Town mentality is Champagne taste on a beer budget. No major franchises and not much culture. Lot of old money still controlling the business atmosphere.
Seem like the local government there do not want the town to grow. There are no good jobs there or anything to do. Seems like they want to keep their people poor and slowly bleed them dry.
Greenwood sc has beautiful homes and cheap taxes however not a place to relocate to if you're a northerner!
Greenwood is a very small town with nothing to do. All other jobs are either dirty or service industry. No clean manufacturing jobs. Ellected officials are the only ones that seemed to have any type of gainful I would not recommend moving to such a small boring town.
Overall, it’s a fairly safe neighborhood to live in. However, I think Greenwood should have more public transportation.
I have lived in Greenwood twice! Moved back here from Greenville 20 years ago & have never regretted it. Greenwood has a vibrant arts community & a lot of non profit agencies that provide comprehensive services as well as activities for families. Some of the comments have focused on “nothing to do”- people said that about Greenville when I lived there too! There are lots of activities if you look & take advantage of them. Farmers market, good community theater, water play pad uptown, two state parks, activities provided by churches, an active community coalition (Greenwood Abbeville Coalition) that provides free family friendly events, museum, several nice local community parks, a dog park with a couple of walking & biking trails, several fitness centers & fitness social groups, several nationally recognized festivals, one of the oldest family run newspapers still operating & lots of restaurants! My experience is that people are friendly & helpful.
We have a very nice dog park that brings nature into the city. Our downtown area is very nice, updated, and clean. There are many places to eat. People are generally friendly and cordial. There are seasonal local farmer's market stands where people sell fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables - they are delicious! I really enjoy living in Greenwood.
Greenwood is a fairly decent place to live. Crime has become more because people have too much time on their hands and there is no guidance in the city. If everyone would be willing to help the next person and be kind, I do believe things would be better for the city of Greenwood. Crime is everywhere so no one can really escape from it. We should always love our neighbor as we love ourselves.
I was born here and love the memories of the 3 years I lived with my grandmother. I recently went back. But left very soon, very depressed. All my relatives there have since passed. There love for me was why I loved Greenwood. Without them it is just a place with only semi friendly people, who seemed liking joy.
Greenwood is an OK place to live in. Though many of the people in town are not the friendliest, they don't seem to dislike each other much either. It would be average. Major problems include constant idiots crashing on the road, sometimes blocking the path for people with their busy and time sensitive lives. The things out of my control are the things I wish could improve and make the town a more positive environment for its people to live in.
I have lived in Greenwood, South Carolina ever since I was born. While this may be a small town, I have not had any really bad experiences. However, I will say that this town needs to improve on the high level of crime related to gangs and shootings.
This town is a joke. You are either “the haves” or “the have nots”! Nothing to do. Nothing for kids. No opportunities. It has become so run down. Even businesses have closed or move out. No leadership. Greenwood “leaders” bring in a U-haul to replace an old Kmart building! How sorry is that!!! We already have several Places to rent U-hauls! The Kmart was at the most busy intersection in Greenwood. People begged for Target to be brought in and this is what we got instead. No wonder so many people are leaving Greenwood! I and so many other people would advise not moving here. We are moving! Can’t wait to go to a more prosperous town that actually cares about its residents.
Greenwood is a very small, Southern town of around 23,000 residents. The relatively small size has been a good thing for me because I was able to make new friends quickly when I first came. However, since it is such a small town located in the South, the people and ideas tend to be very conservative and close-minded which at times can cause a light discourse or disagreement. Though Greenwood has this characteristic that I generally do not enjoy, features like its downtown area, restaurants, and theater are things that I do like about Greenwood.
Greenwood is a nice town that's not too big. The majority of people here are friendly and easy to get along with. I feel that the night life could improve a lot and also, it seems like every time they are getting ready to open something it seems like its always a restaurant. I feel that there needs to be more things that the youth can go to and do that'll keep them out of trouble. Greenwood is overall a great town to live in.
Greenwood is a small town with a big personality. Although there is not much to do there, we have a lake which everyone enjoys and a lot of great local restaurants and businesses that the whole town/county love to support.
