Greenville SC is a great place to be in June with so many free, fun and family friendly things to do. Our downtown is tree lined with great shopping and restaurants. The Reedy River runs through downtown and Falls Park (a 32-acre downtown park with a breath-taking cantilever walking bridge.)
For more outdoors, hike or bike the 20 Mile Swamp Rabbit Trail a multi-use greenway that starts downtown and goes all the way to Travelers Rest. And we also have Paris Mountain just minutes from downtown, and a downtown baseball stadium!
If you prefer indoors, we have museums for kids, art lovers, baseball fans, history fanatics, car enthusiasts and more. There are multiple theater companies, dance companies, and the Peace Center where every major traveling show wants to perform! Prefer music? We have our own world class Symphony, local classical music, and lots of nighttime venues for jazz, rock, blues and good old southern music – not to leave out comedy!
Greenville, SC is located halfway between Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC along I-85 and is nestled below the Appalachian Mountains just south of Asheville NC – and less than four hours from the ocean and Charleston, SC.
