THE COUNTRY’S BEST WORST-KEPT SECRET

Greenville South Carolina

The energetic city of Greenville, South Carolina has become a fixture on ‘best’ lists — best downtown, best place to raise a family, best city park, best cycling and outdoor destination, and much more. It’s perhaps the country’s best worst-kept secret.

BEAUTIFUL. BUSTLING.

Contemporary.

Greenville’s downtown is a mecca in the new South with waterfalls and tree-lined streets, cafes, sidewalk dining, boutiques, and the only single-suspension pedestrian bridge in America spanning the cascading Reedy River that runs through and the 26-acre Falls Park in the heart of downtown.

OFF THE BEATEN PATH

Wander & Be Amazed

Beyond the streets of downtown Greenville, you’ll find yourself at the center of endless opportunities to explore the great outdoors. The paved, 21-mile Swamp Rabbit Trail travels from Greenville through the campus of Furman University to a town as charming as its name: Travelers Rest. Nearby in every direction are countless state and national parks for hiking, biking and endless exploring.
