From inventive restaurants to locally owned boutiques, craft coffee shops, galleries and public art your group can immerse themselves in a unique blend of traditional Southern charm and contemporary cool they won't find anywhere else.
4. Falls Park on the Reedy
Did we mention the ridiculously picturesque 32-acre park sitting in the heart of downtown Greenville? Falls Park on the Reedy is complete with a 40-foot natural waterfall and the one-of-a-kind floating pedestrian Liberty Bridge. Falls Park has been named a “Top U.S. Park” by TripAdvisor several years in a row, along with the likes of Central Park and Golden Gate Park.
5. Unique Venues & Activities
If you're looking for the kind of space that sparks magic and inspires greatness, look no further. Greenville offers unique venues with a rare combination of past-meets-present-perfection. For example, the open air Wyche Pavilion on the Reedy River, originally built in 1904 as a paint shop for carriages. Or the Old Cigar Warehouse, used in the late 1800's to store cigars and cotton.
If adventure-seeking and team-building are on your agenda, Greenville's got a lineup of unique experiences to offer. Get behind the wheel at the BMW Performance Center, catch a Single A Greenville Drive baseball game at Fluor Field at the West End, or head out to the mountains and enjoy ziplining, kayaking, horseback waterfall tours and more.
