Pendleton is a nice, quiet, quant little town. Traffic sometimes does get difficult depending on Clemson traffic, also depending where you are trying to go and during the time of day. Cute little town to walk through, I feel safe living here.

I am extremely humble for the little town of Pendleton, SC! We are such a close knit community and everybody are such kindhearted individuals that will give the shirts off their backs!
I came from a large city in California and moved to South Carolina 5 years ago. I love living in Pendleton because it is small town and still has a small town square where many of the towns events occur. It reminds me of the types of towns I saw in Hallmark movies. It's quiet, stress free and low crime.
