There are few places in the Palmetto State that are quite as charming as the upstate community of Parkins Mill, located just minutes from downtown Greenville, which is a great place to set up shop or put down roots. Known at one time as the “Athens of the Upstate” for its fulsome educational opportunities, the area’s modern day denizens share that commitment to education that drove their forbearers, and the residents of the town hold advanced educational degrees out of proportion to the nation as a whole. The Parkins Mill area real estate section of Greenville, South Carolina is drawing interest among those looking for quaint Southern charm combined with a contemporary social life that is nestled into the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Shopping and Dining

As the largest urban concentration in the upstate area, there is no shortage of big city amenities for Parkins Mill residents. Shopping and dining options abound from the big-box national chains to the little boutique shops that feature one-of-a-kind items that you will not see anywhere else. When it comes to shopping in upstate South Carolina, Greenville is widely considered the region’s “shopping center,” and a more warranted moniker would be difficult to find.

With a recently concluded downtown redevelopment project under its belt, Greenville’s downtown district is now a thriving commercial hub with nearly a hundred restaurants, art galleries, boutique shops, and specialty stores to explore and enjoy.

For those who like to do their shopping all in one location, Haywood Mall is available with more than a hundred retail outlets from Aldo Shoes to Zumiez skateboarding outlet. If you get hungry while shopping, you can grab a snack at Pretzel Maker, or grab some quick grub at Charley’s Philly Steak before continuing your shopping adventures.

Parks and Recreation

When it comes to having fun, there is no shortage of activities to keep everyone in the family healthy, fit, and entertained. Perhaps one of the area’s finest attractions is the city’s network of public parks. With more than 400 acres of outdoor space, the thirty-nine parks in the city provide plenty of elbowroom for throwing a Frisbee, running the bases at Cleveland Park, or riding the miles of groomed bike trails that are available for active residents and visitors alike. For the city’s youngest citizens, The Children’s Garden at Linky Stone Park, an inviting green space along the Reedy River, features an interactive multi-themed garden designed to excite, inform, and delight children with a journey of exploration and discovery.

A lack of money is no deterrent to having fun in the Parkins Mill area real estate. For instance, at this very moment there are nine bronze little mice secreted somewhere in the downtown district, and your mission is to follow the clues provided in the “Mice hints,” and locate the hidden rodents. Your whole family will love the search, and if you locate the mice, your family can claim all bragging rights to your success.

Schools, Hospitals, and Transportation

As mentioned, the community has a strong commitment to educational opportunities, and the Greenville County School District’s 5,000 teachers are on the frontlines in the education of the district’s 70,000 students. The district has earned accolades for the superior education provided in the district’s 83 schools and 17 specialty and early education centers including 13 “National Blue Ribbon Schools,” as well as nine of Newsweek’s “Best High Schools”, to list just a few.

The Bon Secours St. Francis Health System, ranked among the best hospitals in the nation, operates four facilities in the area, and the Greenville Heath System overseas five local campuses.

Situated along the Interstate 85 corridor, getting in and out of Greenville is an easy proposition, and residents benefit from one of the shortest work commutes in the nation. Several regional airports including Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport ensure that visiting this upstate part of South Carolina is easy and stress free.
