I was raised in the Upstate of South Carolina, and I admit I never lived anywhere else, but I feel that we have one of the best areas in the United States. We are located on the Interstate 85 corridor between Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA — about a 2-hour drive to each of these metropolitan areas. We are about 4 hours from the coast, so the ports and beaches of Charleston, SC and Myrtle Beach are convenient. If the beach is not for you, we are only about 2 hours from the Appalachian Mountains — where beautiful mountain top views and fishing streams or hiking trails are abundant for the outdoor lovers. We get all four seasons. It seems like the fall and springs weather gets shorter and shorter, but I digress.

Here's more about the cities and towns of our great region.
Historic Abbeville, South Carolina still has the charm of an old colonial settlement with large homes from the turn of the century. The Opera House still has frequent performances; it is like going back in time. Abbeville is about 30 minutes or so from Greenwood, SC where Lander University is located.

This growing little town has been nicknamed The Electric City. It was one of the first cities in the Southeast United States to have a power plant that supplied electricity to the area. In 2000, it also was named an "All American City." Anderson University is located in Anderson, SC (if the name didn't give that away) and Clemson University is only about 20-30 minutes away.

Greenville – Spartanburg, SC
Greenville is part of the Greenville – Spartanburg area (also known as GSP for the region's airport code). Greenville is becoming a great foodie town with a lot of great places to eat. Industry there is boom in the city. There are a lot of well-known manufacturers that have chosen to locate there— such as BMW, Michelin and others. I have also heard it referred to recently as the Silicon Valley of the South. Greenville has just built an inland port and becoming a major hub for imports and exports of goods. It is also the home of Furman University.
