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.

Excellent small town with fantastic people!
Great roads, restaurants and retail. New dog park and walking/bike trail in town. Wonderful churches and schools. The town has a program where individual small rocks are painted and placed around town. As the rocks are found they are hidden again in a different location for someone else to find.
I've only lived in Simpsonville for 3 years but it has so much to offer. simpsonville is a very nice town with a lot of friendly people who are always willing to help in any way they can. Although Simpsonville may not be the biggest city we have Downtown Greenville so close and there's always something to do there. Greenville has a lot of events and festivals that are fun to attend and hangout with friends. Simpsonville also has great schools to attend. Woodmont High School is a great school as well as Woodmont Middle School. Simpsonville is a very friendly place and it's always growing!
