Considering Relocating to the Upstate of South Carolina?

[Google Maps]

According to the Census Bureau, Greenville, South Carolina is one of the fastest growing southern cities in the U.S. This is no surprise to those of us that already call Greenville and the surrounding areas 'home,' as we have witnessed the exponential growth within the locality. The past ten years have ushered in expansion in business, housing, and accessible services. You may be wondering what attracts people to this area, and better yet, what makes people choose to stay. We have a few facts that may help to shed light on that subject.

Southern Cities Growing Quickly

[Source: U.S. Census Bureau]

#1 Careers       

If you have visited or read the local news for Greenville, Spartanburg, or Anderson, SC then you have more than likely heard mention of businesses such as BMW, Michelin, G.E., or Fluor. The listed industries combined serve as a place of employment for close to 14,000 residents of the Upstate area. The Greenville Health System tops the charts, being the largest employer in Greenville County with just over 14,000 employees alone. Healthcare, manufacturing, and education careers are readily available in the Upstate region. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the unemployment rate for Greenville County, as of May 2017, currently stands at at low 3.1% and average weekly wages are strong. New companies have continued to establish roots in the area, which coupled with expansions from existing industries, are together forging a vibrant and sustainable economy. 

#2 Cost of Living  

With wages remaining stable and the availability of jobs rising, the cost of living in the Greater Greenville area remains below the U.S. nationial average. A key indicator to the affordability is the median purchase price for residential real estate which has shown a home appreciation of 33.05% in the past 10 years, as noted on Sperling's Best Places. Affordability can be strongly affected by the price of housing in relation to the median income. Utilities, services, and the price of goods should also be calculated to determine the income required for livability. Sperling's Best Places website offers a tool for comparing between cities that can be found by clicking here.

#3 Education  

For those with children, the Greenville County School District represents the largest school district in the state of South Carolina and the 44th largest in the U.S. Offering over 101 schools within the public school district, options abound. From magnet schools, to charter schools, and programs that begin career tracks, such as engineering, beginning in elementary grades, a top notch education is available for children. The School District of Greenville County is also the second largest employer for the Upstate with 9800 employees. Higher education offerings in the area include Furman University, Wofford College, Converse College, Greenville Technical College, and Clemson University. The colleges and universities work in close partnership with local businesses and industries to ensure that the education and skills needed to keep the workforce strong is imparted into students.  

#4 Climate  

Many choosing to relocate to this area are in search of a temperate climate, one that affords the weather suitable to enjoy the outdoors without extremes. The Upstate of South Carolina is home to a clearly defined four season year, with moderate temperatures in each season. January averages are 54 degrees for highs and 32 degrees for lows. Summertimes can be humid, yet warm and sunny with average temperatures reaching 90 degrees for the highs and 70 for the lows. Rainfall for the area averages 50 inches per year for the Greenville area and a 3 inches of snow on average in the winter. Don't worry though if snow is something that you enjoy because you can take a short drive into either the South Carolina or North Carolina mountains to enjoy a day or two in the fluffy white powder. If the summer weather suits you better then you may want to take advantage of one of the beautiful lakes that are within an hour's drive, including Hartwell Lake, Lake Keowee, and Lake Jocassee. If 'lake life' is the life for you, check out these beautiful waterfront properties that can serve as your residence or vacation home. 

#5 Culture  

Greenville and the surrounding areas have much to offer in regards to culture. Not only is the area overflowing with natural beauty, but there museums and venues to offer access to a wonderful array of the Arts. The Peace Center in Downtown Greenville features a wide variety of performances each year such as Broadway shows, ballet theater, and orchestra productions. There is an open air stage pavillion for enjoying outdoor summer concerts. Shakespeare in the Park is also a summer production that offers free performances for patrons visiting Falls Park and draws large crowds. Selections for partaking of the Arts include the Greenville County Art Museum, the Upcountry History Museum, and even a museum for the little ones, the Greenville County Children's Museum that is was named as the first children's museum to be classified as a Smithsonian affiliate.  

These are only a few of the factors that you may be considering as you plan your visit or move to the Upstate. If you have not heard mention of Greenville in the past or if you want to gain more insight into what all of the buzz is about, here are few accolades that the city has received both nationally and locally. If there are any other questions that you may have that we did not cover or if you would like more information on the area, please feel free to give us a call at 864-438-5050 and we will be happy to assist you and share more about this place that we call home.

It's Farmer's Market season in Greenville South Carolina


There is an ongoing movement to gather, invest, and thrive in the local community. Some would state that this movement is "going back to your roots," and that those roots are embedded through our local businesses, including farms. Spring and summer are the seasons that many venture outside of the grocery store shelves in search of locally grown and harvested produce and products. Bring your baskets, your reusable bags, and/or your cooler and join us as we explore a few of our local Farmer's Markets. There are many options, from weekend markets, to markets that open multiple days per week, and you will not be disappointed with any. 

The long running State Farmer's Market is located on Rutherford Road in the city Greenville and is open to the public Monday through Friday. This market offers local produce, dried beans, plants, and other local vendor's products. You can click here to access a link for a brochure outlining all that this market has to offer.

Downtown Greenville offers the bustling Saturday Market Alive which attracts tourists and locals alike. Residents flock to this market to stock up on everything from produce, to local honey, to fresh made pasta. The Saturday Market is held on cordoned off blocks right on Main Street, in Downtown, each week from May until October. Visitors can also purchase breakfast, coffee, and snacks from local restaurant booths. This market also holds cooking demonstrations, has live music, and hosts other special events. Of course, the added bonus of hanging out Downtown after the market is a plus!

Further south in the county, there are smaller markets to explore. The Farmer's Market at Fountain Inn is held in the beautiful pavilion area, accessed directly from Main Street. The farmers that feature edible delights here are so local that you may find that a few are your neighbors. If you have not ventured to this smaller market, you will be pleasantly surprised. After shopping the market, you may enjoy browsing the shops and grabbing a bite at one of the local restaurants located on the quaint Main Street. This market is open each Saturday. 

Only a few miles away the Simpsonville Farmer's Market is also open for business each Saturday from 8 am until 12 noon. The market is held on the City Park grounds in the lawn area. The vendor list has grown to 27 this year, making the 2017 market lineup the largest yet. There are vendors selling handmade items such as healthy dog treats, popcorn for the humans, and of course, tons of fresh produce. Speaking of treats, this is a dog-friendly market, so bring your furry friends along to enjoy the sights and smells. 

For those are closer to the northern portion of the county, the Travelers Rest Farmer's Market on the Swamp Rabbit Trail is heralded as "Greenville County's largest open air market," according to the website for Trailblazer Park where the market is held. With close to 100 vendors, there are so many choices that a full grocery store trip could be substituted for a few hours here. Everything from homemade cleaning and beauty products are available on top of the fantastic produce. This market is open each Saturday between 8:30 am and 12 noon. Arrive early for the best selections! 

The outlets for shopping local abound in the Upstate of South Carolina. If you have not yet ventured out beyond the grocery store to purchase weekly fares, this may be just the right time to try one of the many markets and see how buying local not only grows our economy, but also offers the freshest items around. We will be browsing the bounty at one of the local markets this weekend and hope to see you there, too!

Condo Living in Upstate South Carolina

You love Greenville, South Carolina for so many reasons… sustainability, forward movement, and quality of life are among the top reasons that many choose to call this area home. Considering the demographic for Greenville County, many may presume that the choices for a home space are centered to cater to those that choose traditional homes, but the availability and quality of condos and townhomes that are offered in Greenville are changing the way that the home market is being viewed. The thought of condo/townhome living being more suitable for singles or couples is quickly diminishing, as the newer layouts can accommodate up to 4 bedrooms for families.

The Downtown area of Greenville is a thriving, central location for shopping, entertainment, and, yes, living. There are numerous renovated buildings and new construction developments that have created thriving communities for condo/townhome living.  For example, The Terrace at River Place is situated on the bank of the Reedy River and is home to some the greatest views in Downtown.  This West End development is beautifully appointed and has amenities that make it even more alluring including garage parking and a rooftop terrace for residents to enjoy.  

Outside of the main city area of Greenville, there are numerous choices that are near to work places and top notch schools. The Townes at Thornblade is a community located on the East Side of Greenville County in Greer, SC which is near Greenville Spartanburg International Airport, BMW, and the many options for dining and shopping on Pelham Road. This gated townhome community features custom, one level homes with floor plans that offer up to four bedrooms. The location is only a short distance to the membership only Thornblade Club which offers golf, tennis, and pool facilities. 

The southern corridor of Greenville County is also home to upscale communities that offer condo living. The beautiful Cotton Mill Place in Simpsonville, SC has been forged from a restoration of a vacant textile mill that once served as a primary building block to this city’s economy. This community offers first and second floor options, with contemporary accents like exposed, original brick walls, pine beams, and stylish kitchen features. Located just off the Downtown Main Street of this suburban city, local restaurants and shopping are within walking distance. Simpsonville is a short 15-minute drive into Downtown Greenville.

Travelers Rest SC and Tacos

Travelers Rest, South Carolina is quickly becoming the place to be for many local food adventurers. The restaurant scene in this quintessential small, southern town has continued to boom this year, adding eateries such as Farmhouse Tacos. We had the honor of joining the masses on a beautiful Sunday afternoon to dine at this establishment for brunch and it was fantastic!

The building that houses this restaurant offers rustic, hip, industrial decor and has special touches in every corner creating a memorable experience. Upon entering, the front of the building there is a full service bar area located to the left with stool seating. The host/hostess stand is centrally located and proudly displays apparel available with the Farmhouse Tacos logo. There are both tables and booth type seating throughout the restaurant that can accommodate a larger group dining together. The lighting was particularly interesting, as it was forged from industrial pipes that fit the ambiance perfectly.

The garage style doors were open to the patio seating, allowing in sunshine and a nice breeze to make its way through the restaurant on this particularly pleasant afternoon.

Since we visited on a weather perfect day, there were numerous patrons that were stopping by for a break from cycling the Swamp Rabbit Trail or those walking and perusing the shops located in Downtown Travelers Rest. The outdoor patio seating proved to be the first choice of many and created a lively and enjoyable atmosphere.

Now, on to the food... we were definitely pleased with our selections for brunch and are looking forward to returning for lunch or dinner one day really soon! The Sunday brunch menu is smaller, but the choices are plentiful for a lighter bite. One of the hallmarks of the food offered is that the owners, Chris and Katie Williamson, have made it a priority to place locally sourced food from South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia on every plate served. The quality is evident in each bite... and even in the decor!

Before your selection from the menu arrives, prepare yourself for what could perhaps be one of the most balanced and addictive salsas to have made contact with your palate. The chips that are served alongside are fresh and crisp and the perfect scooping size for devouring every drop of salsa. You may find yourself asking for a second serving, but we can neither confirm nor deny that we may have ordered a third serving!

The menu has an eclectic assortment of tacos for any taste, from the Travelers Rest Hot Chicken taco with cornbread croutons and pickled okra, to the Pan Seared Crab Cakes and Fried Green Tomatoes. The Southern influence in the cooking style is evident and served in a refined manner that will leave you wanting more. You can view the full menu HERE.

At the bar, you will find local brews and other beers on tap, a selection of wines, or maybe even a Margarita or two made to order. The bar even serves flavored moonshines from local distilleries for those that are seeking a bit more adventure from the drink menu. 

A list of local farms that provide ingredients for this "farm-to-table" eatery are always posted on the restaurant wall and is much appreciated by customers since it is nice to see how businesses work together to create a thriving, local economy. You will find touches like this that make Farmhouse Tacos a pleasure to dine at, gather for drinks, and experience an overall appreciation for locally owned and sourced restaurants. And, as the conclusion of the menu at this hometown spot states, all things here are... "Made with ♥ in Travelers Rest."
