These publications have all recognized Greenville as a “go-to” travel destination. Here’s what they had to say…
“This South Carolina city is growing in all the right ways, while staying true to itself. Come to enjoy fast cars, slow bike rides, and inspired eats. … In Greenville, growth is contagious. Another public space currently in development, the 60-acre Unity Park, is already bringing creative eateries and new small businesses to once-derelict warehouses at the Commons. Just across the river, the massive brick factories that fueled this textile boomtown are steadily transforming from neglected, hulking shells into luxury lofts with fascinating back stories. … The rumble of constant construction means that the city’s list of “must try” places warrants a monthly update. In this moment, Greenville is a city in full bloom.”
“Summer in Greenville means the return of Saturday marketsfor fresh produce, baked goods, crafts, cheese, honey, and more. The friendly city’s walkable downtown features more than a hundred locally-owned restaurants, art and history museums, Greenville Zoo, and a children’s museum. Ride the free downtown open-air trolleysfor vintage-style transportation. Another favorite Greenville destination is Falls Park on the Reedy, with walking paths, a waterfall, and Liberty Bridge, the perfect place for a view of the park.”
“A perennial stopover between Charlotte and Atlanta (as well as one of the fastest-growing cities in the country), Greenville has become a destination in its own right. The walkable downtown, Instagrammable Main Street, and chef-driven culinary scene are easy draws. Foodies can choose from cuisines reflecting a variety of cultures, authentic barbecue, and James Beard Award-nominated dishes. Greenville’s thriving arts community includes public sculptures and murals, the Peace Center (home to Greenville Symphony Orchestra), and the annual Artisphere, which showcases 135 artists.”
