Greenville, SC, is a great place to visit with so many free, fun and family-friendly things to do.  Our tree-lined downtown is filled with boutiques, nightspots, unique coffee houses and a myriad of restaurants offering just about every kind of cuisine imaginable. The Reedy River runs through downtown and Falls Park, a 32-acre green space with a breath-taking cantilever walking bridge.

Our 60-acre Unity Park features a 4,100-square-foot splash pad, playgrounds, expansive green spaces with picnic tables, a 10,000-square-foot welcome center, basketball courts, a historic baseball field, 2.5 miles of hiking tails, seven bike racks, and three pedestrian bridges that span the Reedy River.

For more outdoors, hike or bike the 22-mile Swamp Rabbit Trail, a multi-use greenway running from downtown all the way to Travelers Rest.  Paris Mountain and the Pisgah Forest are both just a short drive away. And don’t miss our own “Green Monster” (a Fenway Park lookalike) while pulling for our hometown baseball team, the Greenville Drive!

If you prefer the great indoors, check out our museums for kids, art lovers, baseball fans, history fanatics, car enthusiasts and more.  There are multiple theater companies, dance companies, and the Peace Center, showcasing everything from Broadway shows to the hottest touring bands. Prefer more music? We have our own world-class Symphony, local classical music, and lots of nighttime venues for jazz, rock, blues and good old southern music – not to leave out comedy!
