Miss living in Greenville everyday. There is so much good to say about this town. The location is perfect right off the edge of the blue ridge mtns and only a few hrs from the coast. The weather is ideal all 4 seasons, winters are short and summer is hot but not miserable. the fall is amazing ... taking a motorcycle ride up 25 and thru NC or TN is unbeatable. There are many parks for families or outdoor lovers. In terms of nightlife Greenville isnt the mecca but I had some good times down on Main St. Speaking of Main the town blocks it off on fridays and saturdays has big block party with plenty of bbq beer and music. Sunday mornings it becomes a farmers market until about noon. Didnt have a single problem with crime. In terms of shopping it has everything a person would ever need. ATL and charlotte are only 2 hrs away for larger concerts or sports events. Really my only complaint is the cost of living. I am really surprised to see such a low livability score and lack of reviews on here
My travels originally took me from my native home on Long Island, NY to live in Greenville, SC for my continuing education in nearby Spartanburg, SC. Having come from a location that was quite different my life in Greenville, SC has offered me a unique view of the south and the culture that reasonates throughout this region.
There are very many wonderful things about this region but by far it is the physical beauty of the region and the opportunities to play in the great outdoors that offer the most allure. When coupled with the friendly southern attitude of all that live there you are likely to be taken in by all the charm of this incredible South Carolina town. Not too far from Charlotte, NC you have incredible access to many of the larger events that don't make their way to a smaller town like this one.
Greenville, SC does have the BiLo Center where some incredible events do take place throughout the year. In addition to this they also have an incredible zoo. The Greenville Zoo is fun for the entire family and also offers a unique light display around the holidays as well.
A location that is filled with a lot of family and outdoor activities, Greenville, SC is by far one of the true gems of the South. It may not be the hub of major attractions but it is an excellent place to visit and an incredible place to live.
