I love that it is a safe environment with a small town feel. And that it is only about a 20-25 minute drive to downtown Greenville! It is very family friendly. One of my favorite spots is downtown Simpsonville. It has a great movie theater and my favorite place to go to is the called the Ice Cream Station. Very cute place for dates and family fun. Heritage park is also a great place for youth sports such as baseball, softball, football, and soccer. And it also has an amazing amphitheater which hosts concerts very often. Overall I think it is a great place to live.
