Why Greenville? 

With an award-winning downtown ranked one of "America's Best Downtowns" by Forbes, Greenville's tree-lined Main Street has boutiques, craft coffee shops, galleries, and public installations - not to mention a picturesque park with the one-of-a-kind Liberty Bridge overlooking 40-foot waterfalls. There are more than 300 event days per year, so there's always something fun going on in Greenville (like Euphoria, our world-renowned food, wine, and music festival happening during the 2018 Games). 

Walk to 110+ inventive restaurants ranging from traditional to global to downright eclectic (it's no wonder why Greenville was named on Travel + Leisure's list of "Top 20 America's Favorite Cities for Food").
