The Brewery Experience: "Greenville's food truck scene is nearly as outstanding as its beer scene, and as it turns out, those trucks are frequently parked at the city's many breweries."
Public Art Walking Tour: "The city of Greenville has created an interactive map of the area's public art for use on tablets and mobile devices. It's an indispensable guide, especially for those interested in what can be found beyond Main Street."
Surrounded by mountainous terrain and filled with cultural attractions, Greenville beckons all to explore. Visit Main Street on a sunny day, and you'll find folks congregated in Falls Park to picnic, stroll and admire the park's focal point – a picturesque waterfall on the Reedy River. On summer nights, there's likely to be a "Shakespeare in the Park" performance underway, or a Greenville Drive baseball game at Fluor Field (in the West End, a few blocks away). Classical concerts, musicals, ballets, and theater productions frequently appear at the nearby Peace Center, and at the other end of Main Street lies the Bi-Lo Center, where you can catch major pop concerts and sports events. In addition to great theater and music, Greenville offers several museums that cultivate an appreciation for fine art. A short distance from Main Street, the Greenville County Museum of Art is famous for its collection of paintings by Andrew Wyeth, while the Museum & Galleries at Bob Jones University showcases original works by Old Masters. Outside the city, several parks provide opportunity for more adventure and discovery of the area's natural treasures.
