Mauldin is a small community located close to Greenville. This proximity allows for a small town feel while being located close to some of the things you might miss out on while living in a smaller community. Public transit is non-existent aside from a few bus stops so a car is a must if you live here. Bike lanes are also no where to be found, although a proposed new addition of the "Swamp Rabbit Trail" should provide some much needed biking access to local residents. Mauldin has a long way to go to become the ideal place to live, but I believe recent trends made by the local government are putting us on the right track.

I love Mauldin! I love how small and quaint it is, and it's relatively safe as well! There's not much to do there, but I think that adds to its charm! It's quite affordable as well, and the schools are excellent.
I have previously lived in four cities throughout the country, and by far, Mauldin is my favorite city I have lived in. Mauldin provides a hospitable and welcoming community with the aspects of a big city. The city provides plenty of community involvement through the Cultural Center along with the high school's involvement in the community. Along with the culture, Mauldin also houses numerous restaurants and stores that do not only provide quality options but serve as community hubs. Mauldin is located right outside of Greenville, one of the most up and coming cities in the south. Not only does Mauldin's close connection with Greenville makes it a great place to live but the location relative to nature is also superb. Within an hour there are the mountains and within three hours the ocean. Given this, Mauldin is a great city due to its community, businesses, and location.
