What Can Greenville Look Forward to in 2017?
It’s undeniable that our city has changed drastically in recent years – and it continues to grow, develop and prosper. So what can Greenville look forward to in 2017?
Greenville, SC was recently listed in an article from The Wall Street Journal titled “Buzzy Destinations that are Newly Accessible.” The Upstate continues to hold a place as a popular new tourist destination.
The WSJ article reads: “The stars have aligned to make this Southern belle, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Dream Town, USA…”
Expectation for 2017: Tourists will take the advice of the many travel sources that have added Greenville, SC to their lists of “must-visit” locations.
Greenville’s food scene will continue to grow in 2017 with the arrival of award-winning restaurant Husk to the West End. With locations in Charleston and Nashville, Husk has consistently been on the “best of” lists – and Greenvillians should expect no less of its new location in the Upstate.
Expectation for 2017: As Greenville continues to gain notoriety as an up-and-coming food scene, we’ll see even more quality and diverse restaurants make their way to the area.
