City Spotlight: Downtown Greenville

In our new City Spotlight series, we will focus on cities in and around the greater Greenville area. It seems only fitting that we begin this series with a post about the heart of Greenville, the Downtown area. So much revitalization and growth has taken place over the past decade, ranking downtown Greenville as a sure favorite with many locals and out of town visitors alike!

Greenville's downtown has long been one of the Upstate's most popular destinations for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Over the past few years, Greenville has amassed a multitude of accolades and awards from national publications. Livability recently ranked it one of the Top 10 Best Downtowns in the country, and The New York Times called Greenville "a national model for a pedestrian-friendly city center."

Greenville has focused on creating a vibrant downtown that is authentic, sustainable and most importantly, for people. With wide sidewalks, outdoor plazas and streetside dining, downtown Greenville offers a pedestrian-friendly atmosphere that has been compared to that of a European city.

Known for its exceptional beauty, the two most distinctive natural features of downtown Greenville are its lush, tree-lined Main Street and the stunning Reedy River Falls, located in the heart of Falls Park. The award-winning Liberty Bridge in Falls Park serves as Greenville's signature postcard setting, and downtown's extensive collection of public artwork adds beauty and energy to its public spaces. During the day, downtown is home to over 20,000 employees. At night, area residents and visitors flock to downtown to take advantage of its extensive offering of cultural, entertainment and dining options. Not surprisingly, downtown has also become one of the most desirable residential districts in and around Greenville, giving the area an even more well-rounded character.

Downtown is also a shopper's paradise, with 100 retailers, including a variety of art galleries and specialty stores. You'll also find everything from local designer boutiques to national favorites such as Anthropologie, Orvis and Brooks Brothers. With more than 120 independent restaurants in a 10-block stretch, downtown's lively dining scene has sparked Greenville's emerging reputation as a foodie's paradise. Most are locally owned one-of-a-kind eateries, with cuisine for every taste and price range.

We love all these things about downtown Greenville and more, what about you? What are YOUR favorite things about downtown Greenville?
