Thanks for all the help! I will try both ways and let you all know what worked best.

You could consider using the KiteSDK[1]. It uses Avro schemas to describe datasets, can infer
an avro schema from CSV headers, and includes tools for importing from CSV to Avro for storage.
There's a tool demo that can walk you through getting things into avro and displaying a plain
text version[2].

The current MapReduce support is a first pass, but is enough to start playing on[3]. Unfortunately,
I don't think it has a demo walkthrough yet. The next release is supposed to be more user

  I want convert a CSV file into avro format so that I can compress data and do some map reduce
things in Hadoop. And then I want to convert the avro data back to text. Are there any tools
to do this? I know I could use hive to do this but I want to know if there are any other ways
to do this? Thank!
