Nestled into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville, South Carolina has combined traditional southern charm, stunning natural beauty and an unexpected contemporary cool to create one of America's hottest emerging destinations and fastest growing cities. From a revitalized downtown ranked among "America's Ten Best" by Forbes Magazine to downtown Greenville's one-of-a-kind Liberty Bridge, quaint shops, boutiques, and fabulous restaurants to a world-class collection of museums, galleries, and theaters to some of the most beautiful lakes, rivers and mountains in the world, Greenville, South Carolina is everything they say it is and more.

It's one of the beauties of Greenville - you don't have to go very far to satisfy your appetite for discovery and adventure. Our downtown area is packed full of things you've never seen, places you've never been, foods you've never tried, experiences you've never had and friendly people who can't wait to share it all with you.

From the first settlers to fast cars, covered bridges to every kid's wonderland and everywhere in between, Greenville is chock full of intriguing historical sites and world-class museums. Be sure to set aside some time to explore at least a few of these Upcountry gems.

There's something extraordinary about the sound of a waterfall. You can hear it as you approach, water tumbling over rocks before falling to the basin below. In Greenville, we have some of the most remarkable waterfalls in the southeast. And whether you find them along a trail, by boat or by walking through Falls Park in downtown Greenville, their magic won't escape you.
