Take A Trip To Greenville, South Carolina

Liberty Bridge

Tucked away within the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains lies one of America’s up and coming cities, Greenville, South Carolina. With a population of 61,397, it may seem small but with a feel as modern and artsy as Manhattan, paired with beautiful natural landscapes, this southern city has become one of the country’s hottest tourist spots.

Here are some of the top picks for must see and do while visit Greenville.

A nightlife with endless fun

If you’re going out with family or friends for a night on the town, take a stroll through Falls Park on the Reedy, crossing over small rustic waterfalls on the illuminated Liberty Bridge as you make your way to Main Street. Once there, take time to walk the streets of Greenville’s Historic West End and maybe even get a drink or a bite to eat at one of the countless established pubs and restaurants.

Explore Greenville’s nature escape

Paris Mountain State Park

Located only five miles north of the city, lies the 1,540-acre Paris Mountain State Park, the perfect getaway for those looking to get in touch with the city’s natural surroundings. It’s the go-to spot for biking, hiking, boating, fishing and really just about anything nature allows you to do. You’ll have a blast while also enjoying the beauty South Carolina has to offer.

Who said barbecue can’t be romantic?

Check out Smoke on the Water for some tasty barbecue.

Five-star restaurants for a date night are cliché. Go out and make things fun by visiting some of Greenville’s best barbecue joints and get ready to feast on some of the best comfort food around. Dig into succulent baby back ribs drenched in barbecue sauce, or chow down on a big bowl of mac ‘n’ cheese, just be sure to keep a lot of napkins handy.

Catch a minor league baseball game

Fluor Field

If you’re out of town and can’t watch your beloved Mets or Yankees play, head out to Fluor Field to catch the Single-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, the Greenville Drive. Baseball is baseball and nothing beats snacking on peanuts and Cracker Jacks with friends or family while spending a night at the old ballpark.

Enjoy a night of laughs, music or even tears

Hagood Mill

If you finally make your way out of Falls Park and you’re not in the mood for drinks or grub, make your way over to the Peace Center, Greenville’s very own performing arts center. Composed of a concert hall, theater and amphitheater, endless opportunities await you for a night of entertainment.
