Greenville, SC: IN THE NEWS
If you already live in the Upstate, it will not be a surprise that Greenville, South Carolina, is continuing to make headlines for it’s food, hospitality and lifestyle. If you’re not in the area, I encourage you to come visit. But until then, find out why we’ve been in the news with this week’s post.
“Now known for its start-up spirit and urbane downtown, Greenville makes our hot list for its number of butchers, delis, and steakhouses. Savor a steak at Halls Chophouse, then head to Falls Park, where a nearly 40-foot natural waterfall churns just off Main Street, and a pedestrian-only bridge curves gracefully overhead.”
“I’ve never fallen in love with a place as quickly as I did with Greenville… the city of 70,000 had me at the first “Hey, y’all” I heard. (This happened before I had exited its airport.) In that greeting, and echoed in dozens of other interactions over the following days, were vibrancy and pride: The Greenvillians I met lived there because they loved the lifestyle the city gave them. While Greenville in the 1980s was not a best bet for family vacations, today it has a wide-ranging (and well-priced) food scene; quirky boutiques; outdoor cafes on bustling, tree-lined, pedestrian-friendly streets; art galleries; bike trails; ample urban green space; a public art collection with more than 70 sculptures; and the fastest-growing population of any city in the state. No wonder its branded social media hashtag is #yeahTHATGreenville.”
“This charming Upcountry hot spot saw nearly 30 restaurants open in 2017 (in a city of just 67,000), including farm-to-table The Anchorage and the third location of renowned chef Sean Brock’s Husk. There’s plenty to do once you’ve had your fill of Husk’s famous fried chicken. Stroll down picturesque Main Street—the city’s downtown is known for its walkability—and wind up in 32-acre Falls Park on the Reedy, where you can traverse the striking Liberty suspension bridge or catch an outdoor movie (Wednesday nights in May and September).”
