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.

When I was looking to move to this area several years ago, I used these two key sites to stay abreast of the flavor of the area. Needless to say, they were great resources.

Greenville Daily Photo

As the name suggests, they provide a daily snapshot of a Greenville, SC scene along with a bit of commentary. Run by three photographers, Greenville Daily Photo provides a unique visual cross-section that gives an amazing perspective of the inner workings of Greenville.

Some of my recent favorites are:

The Greenville, SC forum

As with any forum, there are an amazing diversity of opinions. As with all opinions, take them as they are and verify for yourself. But if you want to ask questions of the locals or simply browse the discussions underway, it's a fantastic resource!

Some of the current topics are:

  • What do you think is the prettiest building in the Upstate?
  • Downtown Fireworks -- Worth the crowds??? [In my opinion, the answer is YES!]
  • Where does the real estate market in the area stand?
  • Suggestions of areas for my mother to move to.

Between these two sites, you will find there are more than than enough people who are enthusiastic about their home and are great ambassadors for Greenville.
