If you’ve never been to Greenville and don’t know what to do, here are a few things you can look into….
Check out the artwork!
The Greenville County Museum of Art is home to the world’s largest collection of watercolors! It offers free admission and is conveniently located downtown.
If you want to see more artwork, then check out the Village of West Greenville. This area is an expanding community of the arts, with many art galleries, studios and shops selling locally-made pieces. And, if you happen to be in town for the first Friday of the month, then check out First Friday at the Greenville Center for the Creative Arts! From 6-9pm on First Fridays, you can see local artwork and will have the chance to meet the artists.
Spend some time outdoors!
Check out Falls Park and the Liberty Bridge! These are located downtown on the Reedy River and are a cool spot to take a walk or have a picnic. If you are a more intense outdoor adventurer, then there are many great hiking trails just a short drive from the downtown area!
Go on a brewery tour!
Greenville is now home to 15 breweries, with more in the works to open soon! Can’t decide which one to visit? Then check out one of the brewery tours offered by The Brewery Experience or The Greenville Brews Cruise and spend the day brewery hopping!
Have kids? Take them to the Children’s Museum!
The Children’s Museum of the Upstate is a great place to bring your kids for a day of fun and interactive learning. It’s a learning and play museum for kids ages 1-8, with more than 20 hands-on exhibits. Some activities will change on a monthly basis and admission is fairly priced. If you live close enough, memberships are available and you can even book birthday parties and group trips!
See a show!
There are a few different theaters in Greenville where you can see a show! The Peace Center, Greenville Theatre, Centre Stage, and Warehouse Theatre are all cool spots and all have different shows to offer. Whether you like plays, concerts, or ballet, you are bound to find something that interests you.
