Travelers Rest is a great welcoming small town. We have people from all over the U.S. that live here. The schools are great and classes are small. We have many new restaurants and shops in our booming dowtown as well as a thriving community of runners and cyclists! The Swamp Rabbit Trail provides easy access to the nearby city of Greenville.

Traveler's Rest is one of the greatest towns in South Carolina. It is a small town that resides in the bigger city of Greenville, South Carolina. It has the cozy feel of a small town with the amenities of a big city. There are many options of entertainment including the Swamp Rabbit Trail, restaurants, downtown, shopping, and more. The people are nice and the town is beautiful.
I think overall Travelers Rest is a great city especially to raise a family. Yes, It is a small town but there isn't any drama. The city has developed so much over the past few years. Travelers Rest downtown is absolutely beautiful and we all gather as one and create beautiful programs.
