Getting to Know Greenville, SC

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville, SC is a beautiful city that offers the perfect blend of sophistication and southern charm. Conveniently located between Atlanta and Charlotte, Greenville has attracted new arrivals for years, becoming one of the fastest-growing, up-and-coming cities in the South. Whether you're looking for a scenic backdrop to an active lifestyle or the civic and professional life of a family-friendly town, you'll love what Greenville has to offer.

Greenville Apartments and Neighborhoods

  • Augusta Street Area: Alta Vista in the Augusta Street Area is a great place if you're looking to settle down with your family. The Greenville Zoo, Swamp Rabbit Trail, and multiple parks are close by, so you have no shortage of places to take the kids. It also feels more suburban while not being far from the city itself. 
  • Downtown Greenville: Is it a little cliche to list the downtown? Maybe, but it's still a great place to live. It's very walkable, has a large variety of restaurants, and still finds room for Liberty Bridge at Falls Park, where you have a great view of a 30-foot waterfall without having to leave the downtown area.
  • Montebello: A gated community, this is one of the more affluent areas in the city. Right by the Blue Ridge Mountains, it's a highly expensive area to live, but many find the views and lifestyle to be worth it. 
  • West End Historic District: In the 1830s, this was the center of the textile industry in the city. Today, it blends that history with an active arts and entertainment culture. 
  • West Greenville: This is a neighborhood on the rise. With many recent restoration and revitalization projects, West Greenville is on its way to becoming a popular, walking-friendly, creative area. This is one to keep your eye on and maybe jump at the chance to live in before it gets too popular and crowded. 

Greenville Job Market

The automotive industry is booming in the Greenville-Spartanburg area, with top businesses like Michelin headquartered in the region, along with a BMW manufacturing plant that employs many Greenville residents.
