Greenville offers groups a unique blend of traditional Southern charm and contemporary cool they won’t find anywhere else. Its award-winning, tree-lined main street buzzes with people, locally owned boutiques and 110-plus inventive restaurants. Greenville also is home to a ridiculously picturesque 32-acre park situated in the heart of downtown, with a breathtaking waterfall and a one-of-a-kind floating pedestrian bridge.
“Welcome to Greenville, South Carolina — where surprises await around every corner,” said Taryn Scher, PR representative for VisitGreenvilleSC. “From twinkling treetops to dazzling waterfalls, to world-class art exhibits and one of the most buzzed about food scenes in the United States, this charming Southern city will have you planning your next visit before you even leave.”
