Wade Hampton is a census designated area in northwest SC. It's a part of Greenville-Mauldin- Easley. So what does that mean? Wade Hampton is an unincorporated area. So it's not exactly a town, it's more of a really big neighborhood. Now Greenville, is the largest commercial business district in the northern part of the state with all the things that come with it, shopping, dining, events, etc. There are quite a few museums, many historical landmarks and a fair amount of housing being created. And, lots of colleges and universities in the area as well. Get a little culture and soak up some of that southern charm, y'all.
