What's Great About Greer?
While Greer may be home to BMW’s only manufacturing plant in the United States, this former textile town has retained every ounce of its small-town allure. Nowhere is that more evident than in Greer Station, the town’s central business district. The aptly named Trade Street, which dates to the early twentieth century, is lined with one-of-a-kind shops where you’ll find fashionable men’s clothing, women’s designer shoes, trendy apparel, and an expansive offering of antiques, jewelry, and home furnishings. When hunger hits, Greer fights back with a rapidly expanding collection of restaurants and a fabulous new food hotspot, Cartwright Food Hall. Just a few blocks away, Greer City Park hosts a variety of events ranging from Tuesdays in Town to the spring and summer Greer Farmers Market.
The BMW Zentrum, BMW Performance Center, and The Ultimate Driving Museum presented by the BMW Car Club of America Foundation, are three must-sees for car enthusiasts. You can learn about the past, present, and future of BMW through rotating exhibits, all adjacent to one of the world’s most advanced car manufacturing facilities. Then, take a ride on the wild side in a BMW Performance Drive, where you can put an entire sampling of vehicles through their paces off-road or on a track.
Put a little thrill in your dinner with a Plate 108 Murder Mystery Dinner. Play one of the characters, learn cooking skills (or just dine on delectable cuisine), and unlock your inner Sherlock Holmes. Bon appétit!
When you’re not feeling the need for speed, head over to the tasting room of VICARIO Distillery and Farm for a garden-to-glass experience. Tour the micro-distillery and farm and learn about their botanical gin and 15 exquisite liqueurs.
