    Clemson

    Suburb in South Carolina,

    99 Niche users give it an average review of 4.1 stars.

    Featured Review: Current Resident says I love Clemson thanks to the friends I have made, networking I've established, and the experiences I've been lucky enough to have. The only reason I rate it 4/5 stars is because of two reasons: 1) traffic on the main road (Tiger Blvd) is always awful - what should be a 5 minute drive is actually a 15 minute drive thanks to stop and go traffic. 2) The college I attend (Clemson University) is outrageously expensive, and Summer courses are no exception. I will be paying $12,000 for 15 credit hours over the summer just so I can graduate in....

    Greer

    Suburb in South Carolina,

    156 Niche users give it an average review of 4.1 stars.

    Featured Review: Current Resident says Lived there for 7 years now. Lived in Taylors for about 8 years prior. Greer definitely has more to offer than some of the smaller suburban areas but there's not much nightlife. We have a music venue...Greer is close to the airport and approximately the same distance from both Greenville and Spartanburg which provides plenty of shopping and activity choices. The area is diverse but still predominantly white. Overall a good experience here, although crime is significantly higher than one would expect in an area like this. There are a lot of bored...Overall a good experience..

    Featured Review: Current Resident says I came to TR to die lol! I did my research here on niche.com and other demographic websites to find the perfect “ last stop” for this 68 year old Southern woman. I love SC and have lived here off and...TR and Greenville still retain that old Southern hospitality and friendliness I knew as a youth (Mom and one brother are natives). PS I’m someone who has lived in seven states and Germany since they were a young child; I’ve lived in lots of trendy areas like Atlanta and Chapel Hill and Ann Arbor, Michigan etc. and you cannot....
