Greenville, SC: Travel Destination
Once again, Greenville has been listed as a recommended food and travel destination. Find out why you need to come visit – and live – in the South Carolina Upstate.
Last year, Greenville, South Carolina was included in The New York Times Travel list of “52 Places to Go in 2017.” The article reported…
“Though small, Greenville, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, may be the next major food destination…”
That expectation has certainly seemed to hold true. Our fair city was also recently listed second in an article from Travel + Leisure titled “50 Best Places to Travel in 2018.”
Here’s what writer Rachel Tepper Paley had to say…
“Once a sleepy second fiddle to Southern culinary powerhouses like Charleston and Nashville, Greenville is stepping into the limelight with several new white-hot restaurants. The town will soon be home to an outpost
of Sean Brock’s heirloom-crop-focused Husk and a food-centric market hall called the Commons. Other recent additions include modern Italian spot Jianna from Michael Kramer (the opening executive chef of McCrady’s in Charleston, pre-Brock) and the moody speakeasy lounge Vault & Vator. It’s an impressive collection of quality restaurants for a city of just over 67,000. Those with a predilection for high-thread-count sheets will soon be able to luxuriate at the Grand Bohemian Hotel, a ritzy boutique property with Carolina charm. In the meantime, discerning visitors can bunk at the swank Westin Poinsett, a historic hotel that was rescued from the wrecking ball in the late 90s, laying the groundwork for Greenville’s great Southern revival.”
So … take (everyone’s) advice and come experience what Greenville, South Carolina has to offer. And if you like it, consider staying a while. It’s not only a great place to visit – but also a great place to live.
