Greenville South Carolina is a small but charming city that has justifiable pride in the attractions it offers its citizens and guests. Its downtown area in particular is visually attractive and comfortable. There are a number of historic districts in Greenville. The Pettigru District contains 88 lovely buildings, mostly brick, built between 1910 and 1930. The Colonel Elias Earle Historical District is named after an early settler in the region who owned most of the district’s grounds in the late 18th century. The West End Historical district acts as the arts and entertainment center of Greenville.
There are some very pleasant outdoor adventures to be had in Greenville South Carolina. Timmons Park has a mountain bike trail that follows the park’s creek for an agreeable 2-mile jaunt. How could anyone resist a picnic in lovely little Mayberry Park? Falls Park is the best place to spend a sunny afternoon in all of Greenville. There are lovely gardens and a trail along the Reedy River that takes visitors on the only curved, cantilevered pedestrian bridge in the United States. The bridge with its seemingly off kilter yet graceful lines and gently glowing handrails is almost as impressive a sight as the Reedy River Falls that it traverses.
