Greenville Named Friendliest City
The southern hospitality stereotype is legendary—but it seems that even among the greater South’s notoriety for warm welcomes, Greenville, South Carolina, shines brighter than most.
Greenville, South Carolina, was recently included on CN Traveler’s 2020 Readers’ Choice list of the friendliest cities in the United States. Only ten cities in the country were recognized.
Here’s what the article—which you can read in full here—said about Greenville …
“A first-time “friendliest cities” inductee, Greenville made quite the impression on travelers in 2020. It’s hard to say what exactly makes the locals here so happy. It may be the city’s burgeoning farm-to-table food movement, with restaurants like Jianna and Vault & Vator serving up fresh seafood and well-crafted cocktails. Or perhaps the craft beer scene is what keeps the pep in people’s steps. But let’s not forget about the abundant natural resources here, from the 32-acre Falls Park to the Swamp Rabbit bike trail. Whatever the reason, one thing’s for sure: You should definitely visit this South Carolina city on the brink of stardom.”
However, it isn’t just visitors that Greenvillians look out for. We are also known for taking care of our own. In case you missed it, Today Show shared a story back in December about how Greenville restauranteurs got creative to feed those in-need while keeping people working during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s definitely worth checking out!
Honestly, I’m not surprised Greenville has received this most-recent recognition. And if you’re lucky enough to live here—or visit often—I imagine you’re not surprised either.
So if you’re interested in moving to Greenville or in finding your forever home, please be in touch. I’ll be happy to show you around.
