The town of Simpsonville, just like Greenville, used to be full of cow pastures and farm land. Today, Simpsonville is booming! Fairview Road is the new Woodruff Road (if you're from the area, you know what I mean). This amazing, little city is growing into a suburb of Greenville, SC. I lived in Clemson for a few years, then moved to Greenville, and finally bought my home in this great city. I couldn't be happier with my choice!
Very safe area, and although everything is too spread out for it to be walkable you are safe to walk around without fear. There are many restaurants of all types in this area and day-to-day shopping needs are close. You can be on Woodruff Road in 10 minutes from Simpsonville for many many more shopping and dining options. Police are very visible but it is mostly traffic related since crime is quite low. Lots of new construction going on everywhere and real estate is booming. There is a nice downtown area with shops and restaurants.
