Located in the heart of upstate South Carolina, Greenville is a small city that's growing quickly. It has become a hub for young professionals, but its hustle and bustle is tempered by its backyard, a playground for the outdoorsy. Greenville is the largest city in South Carolina's scenic "upcountry," the westernmost part of the state that's known for its natural beauty. With four distinct seasons, every time of year is a beautiful time for a Greenville vacation.
An active and social city, Greenville has many event venues that host concerts, plays, sporting events, and conferences throughout the year. It's home to the Greenville County Museum of Art, the Bob Jones University Museum and Gallery, and the Roper Mountain Science Center, which houses a historic 23-inch refractor telescope. For the more adventurous folks, Greenville is close to a wide array of outdoor adventures: hiking, fishing, kayaking, horseback riding, and more are all close by. Downtown Greenville hotels give visitors easy access to the Swamp Rabbit Trail, a multi-use trail system that connects schools, parks, and local businesses for pedestrians and other non-motorized modes of transportation. The trails connect to the Falls Park on the Reedy, a park adjacent to downtown that features even more trails as well as public gardens, sculptures, and the Liberty Bridge, a pedestrian suspension bridge that curves around a waterfall on the Reedy River. Staying at hotels in Greenville gives visitors the best of both worlds: scenic adventures with the amenities of city life.
