For your price range, I can recommend a few options by category. In the city limits accessible to Reedy River Park, try the Augusta Road community and Cleveland Park community. The North Main area is also home to a great park with access to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The San Souci area past North Main is also home to a lot of cyclists. However, it is transitional but is a great investment area for those who want to be close to downtown, able to ride bikes to work or shop and get great value for your money. For outside of the city limits, cyclists and hikers like the Cliffs Communities, Acadia, and many neighborhoods in the Travelers Rest Area. Travelers Rest will offer more acreage and home for your money with access to the Swamp Rabbit Trail, but it is the most rural. All are great options. It really depends on what you want for yourself and your dogs. I hope this helps!
Here is a short blurb about Furman.
Finding a home near any of these attractions will not be a problem for you.
Welcome to Greenville!
The big lakes are about an hour away. They are wrapping up a new outdoor ampitheater on the Reedy River and you can't miss the new building going in downtown that will be home to Anthropolgy. Not to mention the revitalization of the Hyatt.
Florida and are having a hard time getting out due to the economy and housing sales.
If you haven't been there, please go. It is not far from the mountains and only 4 hours to Myrtle Beach.
I want to go back and never leave again.
There are lovely areas near Furman University for biking, but even better areas near Anderson and
Clemson University. Lakes and river abound and before we left a new housing development went
up in that area in your price range. I once heard that when they built the golf course that Tiger Woods had some money invested in the course and had wanted to build a house there.
I am not a real estate agent by any means, but I sure miss Greenville and hope to get back soon.

Greenville is the perfect place for outdoor activities like biking, hiking and walking the dogs! You might like the Traveler's Rest area, as it is close to the Swamp Rabbit Biking Trail and close to the mountains for hiking. The downtown area would also be nice.
As far as lifestyle, I think it will be much cooler in the winter than South Florida and we still have a change of seasons, yet fairly mild climate.
Please let me know if I can help you in any way!
