Pelion Reviews

3 reviews
Pelion, SC is my hometown. I've lived here my whole life. My favorite part about it is that it's a quiet town where everybody knows everybody. There aren't large buildings and there isn't a lot of rushing around, but just about everybody will give you a hello and show you some southern hospitality. The town looks a little worn down, but the people keep it alive. And, it may be small but you don't have to look far for food. There's an IGA, a couple glass stations with fast food services (such as Sub Station), Sweet Magnolias for some down right mouth watering barbecue, a House of Pizza, and plenty more. There's a nice park with a playground and walkway that's nice to take evening strolls in, as my family and I do occasionally. And there's my second favorite thing: the library. It's small but they can get anything you need and it's definitely my favorite place in town.

I like that Pelion is such a small, tight-knit community. We all know of town issues and community projects going on. Everyone knows everyone, so it's easy for people to become involved and concerned with the lives of others. The schools are close, there are many places to eat, and the town is never hectic.
Small quit town with one stop light. Good restaurants with homemade food. Lots of open spaces and beautiful country side. Super market has local fresh vegetables. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Land is and expensive and priced just right .
