The county lies just along I-85 in the southern portion of upstate South Carolina, equidistant to Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC. Despite its cosmopolitan neighbors, Anderson County retains the benefits of smaller-town living with friendly people and less traffic than nearby metro cities. Blending the old and new, the county seat of Anderson has revitalized its downtown with new facades, cobblestone areas, fountains, and green spaces. This revitalization complements the stately historic courthouse and the modern new courthouse facing each other on Main Street.   Companies throughout the county recruit employees who have received specialized training from area schools, including nearby Tri-County Technical College and Clemson University. From a temperate Southern climate and Lake Hartwell to leading universities and a variety of arts programs, greater Anderson County offers an unmatched combination of quality of life features.
