Top Benefits of Retiring in Greenville, SC
Amazing Tax Breaks & Exemptions
When it comes to the best places to retire, it’s hard to beat a state that doesn’t tax Social Security benefits or Railroad Retirement. South Carolina and Greenville County have lower than national average property taxes (almost half!) There are currently some great exemptions for senior residents. Taxpayers 65+ can exclude up to $10,000 of retirement income and deduct $15,000 from all taxable income.
Low Cost of Living
Along with the tax benefits, the low cost of living in Greenville is a very attractive benefit of retiring here. Greenville’s cost of living is 10.2% below the US average, including everything from grocery and transportation costs to utilities.
The right climate is a huge factor in one’s choice to move. Greenville residents enjoy the area’s moderate climate with comfortable temperatures most of the year. It’s hot and humid in the summers and cool, but mild in the winters. You won’t have to worry about temperatures becoming too extreme as they rarely dip below freezing nor exceed the 90s.
Easy to Stay Healthy & Active
The moderate weather means you can enjoy being outdoors nearly all year round. Surrounded by beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and nestled in nature preserves, wilderness areas, and state parks. The Paris Mountain State Park is a short drive away for multi-use trails that wind around lakes and hills. Staying healthy and active is easy here with miles of walking, hiking, and biking trails nearby.
Tons of Culture & Things to Do
The newly gained free time after retiring will allow room in your schedule for so many cultural amenities and attractions to explore. With more than 300 yearly events, including live theater, outdoor concerts, street festivals, and more, you’ll have plenty of ways to spend that free time in Greenville. The true gem of this city is the view of the Reedy River Falls from the Liberty Bridge. It’s the only single-suspension bridge of its kind in the Western Hemisphere. Spend a day outdoors with a visit to the 14-acre zoo, botanical gardens, or an outdoor movie in Falls Park. There are also tons of museums, art galleries, and other artistic amenities to enjoy for inside options.
