Getting to Know Greenville, SC

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville, SC is a beautiful city that offers the perfect blend of sophistication and southern charm. Conveniently located between Atlanta and Charlotte, Greenville has attracted new arrivals for years, becoming one of the fastest-growing, up-and-coming cities in the South. Whether you're looking for a scenic backdrop to an active lifestyle or the civic and professional life of a family-friendly town, you'll love what Greenville has to offer.

Greenville Attractions

Greenville is home to several major gathering spaces and event venues. The TD Convention Center, one of the largest convention spaces in the South, hosts dozens of national gatherings and expos each year. The Bon Secours Wellness Arena (dubbed "The Well" by locals) hosts the Greenville Swamp Rabbit hockey team, college graduation ceremonies and big-name concerts. Don't miss the annual festivals that receive national attention, including the Artisphere and foodie-favorites Fall for Greenville and Euphoria. In the winter, head to Ice On Main where an open-air skating rink is erected in the middle of downtown for everyone to enjoy.

Greenville Apartments and Neighborhoods

  • Augusta Street Area: Alta Vista in the Augusta Street Area is a great place if you're looking to settle down with your family. The Greenville Zoo, Swamp Rabbit Trail, and multiple parks are close by, so you have no shortage of places to take the kids. It also feels more suburban while not being far from the city itself. 
  • Downtown Greenville: Is it a little cliche to list the downtown? Maybe, but it's still a great place to live. It's very walkable, has a large variety of restaurants, and still finds room for Liberty Bridge at Falls Park, where you have a great view of a 30-foot waterfall without having to leave the downtown area.
  • Montebello: A gated community, this is one of the more affluent areas in the city. Right by the Blue Ridge Mountains, it's a highly expensive area to live, but many find the views and lifestyle to be worth it. 
  • West End Historic District: In the 1830s, this was the center of the textile industry in the city. Today, it blends that history with an active arts and entertainment culture. 
  • West Greenville: This is a neighborhood on the rise. With many recent restoration and revitalization projects, West Greenville is on its way to becoming a popular, walking-friendly, creative area. This is one to keep your eye on and maybe jump at the chance to live in before it gets too popular and crowded. 

Greenville Job Market

The automotive industry is booming in the Greenville-Spartanburg area, with top businesses like Michelin headquartered in the region, along with a BMW manufacturing plant that employs many Greenville residents. 

Free Things to Do in Greenville

From sightseeing on Main Street to exploring the scenic hiking trails, there are plenty of fun things to do in Greenville. Here are a few of the best free activities:

  • Mice on Main: Children love spotting the nine mouse figurines hidden along downtown Main Street. Can you find them all?
  • GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail: Bike or stroll along the 21-mile path, winding through Greenville and ending in the nearby town of Travelers Rest.
  • NOMA Square: Often host to live music, dog block parties and outdoor fitness events, NOMA Square is the hotspot for local gatherings throughout the week.
  • Liberty Bridge: This iconic structure that spans the Reedy River gives visitors a picturesque view of the splendor of Falls Park.
  • Falls Park: In the middle of downtown Greenville, you can still get stunning views of the gardens and the Reedy River waterfall. In the summer, there are free outdoor performances by the Upstate Shakespeare Festival.
  • Palmetto Trail: Outdoor enthusiasts won't want to miss the scenic views on this outdoor trail that spans over 425 miles in the mountains.

Greenville Families with Kids

Cleveland Park is a must-visit for families, equipped with picnic sites, playgrounds, volleyball courts, workout stations and walking paths that connect to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Greenville is backed by an excellent school system, with Green Charter School and Sterling School noted as standouts.

Outdoor Adventure and Natural Beauty in Greenville

Greenville's picturesque setting near the Blue Ridge Mountains encourages both visitors and locals to stay active outdoors, exploring the natural beauty that the region has to offer. A network of parks and bike paths within the city's boundaries make Greenville one of the most exercise-friendly cities in South Carolina. Nearby Paris Mountain State Park attracts outdoor enthusiasts from hikers and mountain bikers to rock climbers and trail runners. Less than an hour to the northwest, Caesar's Head State Park offers many of the same activities on a larger scale. Bring your furry friend along to Conestee Park to play in the 45,000-square-foot dog park, or practice your swing at one of three on-site baseball fields.
