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.
