Stroll Like It's the Weekend

It's never a question of whether Greenville will captivate the imagination of its visitors; it's just a question of how. Will an evening horse-drawn carriage ride beneath a canopy of twinkling lights bring back thoughts of a favorite childhood fairy tale? Will the scent of a burger and fries wafting from a restaurant's patio trigger memories of cookouts with family? Perhaps a piece of art from studio galleries will elicit fond memories of good friends and special moments? No matter how you choose to see the area, we've got the 411 on Downtown Greenville, self-guided walks to get you just off the beaten path, and if you're traveling with Fido, Rover, Buddy, Bella (you get the idea), we've got everything you need to know about that, too!

Greenville is big on art, and not just in our museums. In fact, many of our city streets (and parks) provide blank canvases for artists of every description. You'll see bronzed citizens from the city's history occupying park benches and overlooking the ever-changing landscapes. And more than one innocuous brick wall has been transformed, bursting to life in a blaze of color and creativity.
