possibly relocating to Greenville, SC

My husband and I are from Canada and are planning on possibly relocating to Greenville (area) SC. I am just wondering you moms from there what do you like dislike about it? How is the freedom for homeschooling/vaccination laws? Other freedoms? Low taxes?

We are tired of the liberal and atheistic culture out here and are looking to relocate. Any advice would be appreciated!

Thank YOu

Love the area! Lots to do and great weather. I don't know how taxes compare since I've never really been anywhere else, but I do have a lot of friends who homeschool.

Of you have bad allergies it's a bad region though.we have one of the highest pollen counts in the nation. So keep that in mind. Good luck in all your searching!

Re: possibly relocating to Greenville, SC

We used to live in Greenville, SC, and LOVED it! We're in NC now, in an area that is a bit more liberal than SC (that's relative though).

Taxes depend on which township you move to - Travelers Rest and Greer are MUCH higher than Simpsonville and Mauldin. Greenville proper is very small, so you'll likely end up in one of the out-lying areas.

There are quite a few NLAP moms in the area and a lot of schooling options. I think that vaccination laws only apply to children entering school - ie they have to be up-to-date by 1st grade, but I may be wrong. I do still have friends in the area who delayed.

I LOVED that Greenville was so close to the mountains, but not far from the coast. It's really the best of both worlds. And, it's fairly culturally diverse because of BMW and Michelin having offices there. And, cost of living is certainly less than in Canada!

I grew up in that area. I def agree with it not being great for those of us with seasonal/environmental allergies.
Sc taxes are much lower than nc. We are currently renting in nc, but plan to move back to sc to buy.
Overall, I would say it's a great area to raise a family. The weather is pretty mild compared to other parts of the country. The city has a lot to offer as far as museums, parks, camps, churches, etc.
Greenville has grown a lot since I lived there. It seems like traffic gets worse every time we return for a visit.
I have heard that there's a great homeschool community in the area. North and South Carolina, I have been told, are both currently very homeschool friendly.
