Powdersville is a town with nice suburbs and school districts. It's education system gets high marks often, and from educational experience, has lead their students to be successful. It's connected to Easley, a nice restaurant hub, and Greenville, one of the most friendly, clean, new cities you'll find in South Carolina. As a resident of Powdersville for many years, I found that what I enjoyed most is its suburb qualities and location near several shops and restaurants, yet still encompasses a tone of nature.

Powdersville is growing and has a lot to offer. Highly rated schools, big yards, modern conveniences (Walmart, chick-fila, etc), parks and more.
A great bedroom town to Greenville. #thatGreenville.
Has a few chain restaurants, a few really good independent ones, and very low crime. Growing rapidly and hopefully will get more stores than the only one Walmart. Good doctors and new medical treatment facility. Even has a Technical School branch for Tri-county Tech.
