Lara says 9 years ago
Greenville has my favorite downtown of any city in the world. I haven’t been everywhere, but I have been traveling for years. If you don’t mind walking, park near Main St, and stroll up and down the street, it’s beautiful, clean, thriving with people of all ages, some local and some from other countries. Greenville has several companies that pull talent from overseas. Main Street will also take you to the beautiful Falls Park on the Reedy River. Over the river is a unique curved pedestrian suspension bridge. Spend the afternoon walking through the park, shopping and dining downtown.
