About Greenwood, South Carolina
Greenwood Offers Small-Town Appeal Without Being Small
Nestled within the rolling hills of South Carolina’s Upstate region, Greenwood enjoys small-town appeal without being small.
Its ‘urban’ center boasts the widest Main Street in America, providing fine dining, cultural experiences and high fashion shopping within a two-mile stretch.
For the casual types, more modest restaurants and a new multiplex theatre are available on the bypass. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you may be better suited for the hiking trails, and sculpted shores of Lake Greenwood State Park.
Within its intimate neighborhoods, Greenwood is home to quality elementary education options, several parks and playgrounds, and Lander University. Within the county there are many expanding industries including FUJIFILM Manufacturing USA, Velux America and Eaton.
Situated only an hour away from four metropolitan areas, Greenwood is close enough for excursions, but far enough away to maintain a pollution and crime free atmosphere. Within three hours drive are the Atlantic Sea Coast; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Atlanta, Georgia, providing an abundance of vacationing, cultural and shopping opportunities.
