Lion King performer gives Greenville high praise
For the last month, the the Lion King has performed at the Peace Center. As with any Broadway show when they roll into town, Greenville has the priviledge of hosting the cast and crew.
Fortunately for us, one of the understudies has an active blog where he and his wife posts about their adventures on the road. Our fair city is no exception: Mike and Angela Hollick have written extensively on the downtown as well as local businesses.
"So then why is Greenville, SC just the most glorious place right now?," Angela writes.
"Perhaps because it's a cute little city that's impeccably maintained. Maybe because the local people we've met are genial and very taken with The Lion King. It could be because…

If you are looking to move to Greenville, SC and want to get a feel for the local flavor, there are several amazing sites that give a unique perspective.
The typical first stop for people wanting to know about an area is local real estate and news websites. While we specialize in giving as much valuable data as we can, if you dig a bit deeper, you'll find there are other sites that show the uniqueness of an area, not just the facts regarding real estate.

Greenville, SC is once again making national headlines as a great place to live and work. This time we are in the real estate section of the New York Times where they discuss the development of Verdae.
Located near the Shops at Greenridge at the intersection of Laurens and Woodruff Rd., the New York Times describes Verdae as “…a city within a city, designed with a walkable ‘live, work, play’ ethos. A master plan approved in 2005 includes single-family homes, town homes and apartments, retail and office buildings, a retirement complex and a large medical building. A 20-acre recreation area called Legacy Park is already finished.”
Homes are currently on the market in Hollingsworth Park at Verdae. Prices range between $250,000-500,000 with…

While the Greenville Drive waited for the rain to clear, they captured this spectacular picture of a double rainbow.
The Greenville Drive is a minor league baseball team located near the West End of Greenville, SC. Watching the ballgame is a great and inexpensive way to spend a beautiful evening. My wife and I typically get supper from any number of the restaurants in downtown Greenville, walk to the game, and then afterwards cap it off with an ice cream at Spill the Beans.
A popular development adjacent to the Greenville Drive is the Field House at West End. It is housed in a mixed use building that has restuarants on the ground level and great condos on the floors above.

Founded in 1991, The Cliffs Communities is a beautiful network of developments spanning the North Carolina and South Carolina border. Three mountain communities are located in Greenville County: The Cliffs at Glassy, The Cliffs at Mountain Park, and Cliffs Valley. They also have three lakeside communities in Asheville as well as The Cliffs at Keowee.
Plans for The Cliffs Communities have been very ambitious with signature golf courses designed by elite golf personalities, including Tiger Woods. Once slated to be a luxury community around the Blue Ridge Mountains, this development has known it's share of trouble as the real estate market declined.
But things are looking up for The Cliffs. A Texas couple, Steve and Penny Carlile, is buying…
