Celebrating Our Upstate

South Carolina is home to one of the nation’s most beautiful and affordable cities to call home, new rankings show. 


“When considering where to live in the U.S., it’s more important than ever to assess both the affordability and beauty of a location, especially with housing and living costs steadily rising,” Travel + Leisure magazine wrote in its report. 


Greenville was the only place in South Carolina to land in the top 10 of the Travel + Leisure list. The Upstate city of about 72,000 people received a nod for having downtown amenities that have the potential to attract new residents.


Greenville is no stranger to earning spots on best-of lists. This year, its Falls Park on the Reedy ranked as one of the nation’s favorite parks, and Greenville County was named the No. 1 place to live in South Carolina.
