Travelers rest is a small town in Greenville, SC. Everyone knows everyone. It is much like a family scene. It is a great place to raise children! Beautiful, and close to mountains.

Safe, small, beautifully situated in the foothills of the Appalachain mountains, dedicated police department in town limits. Quiet, great schools. Awesome small-town feel with revamped downtown area and access to Swamp Rabbit Trail and some tourist destinations.
Travelers Rest to many people may have seemed like a small town, but within the past few years it has grown tremendously. We have many more shops and restaurants that provide a great place for families and people of all age groups to spend time together. There is a great sense of community here especially through the schools and their involvement in the community. The only thing I would want to change is we could maybe use a few other stores that provide more resources and for some of our current businesses to grow some more.
