More good press for Greenville SC

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate’s Lifestyle ranked Greenville No. 5 for versatile dining and nightlife, along with having a median home price of $134,875. Standard and Poor’s gave the city a AAA rating and Forbes magazine said Greenville was one of the top 15 cities for young professionals.

Recent changes at the Greenville Airport, like bringing in Southwest Airlines, has significantly reduced prices and increased traffic.   It is still not the least expensive airport but much improved. 

The Greenville Zoo, which is on our list to visit this fall, is part of a prestigious accrediation program, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) placing the local zoo in the same class with zoos in San Diego, Cincinatti, Atlanta and Walt Disney’s Animal Kingdom.   There are only 223 AZA certified organizations in North America, United Kingdom and Australia combined.  I was pretty impressed with that.

Of course it is not perfect but the town is trying and succeeding at doing a lot of things right.   Bob and I have never thought for even a second that we could have found a better place to live.
