Greenville has so much to offer! It is so family friendly and has so much to do. It is definitely going to become bigger and a much more known town. Downtown is beautiful and has so many wonderful restaurants, from French to a Mexican-Japanese fusion. Greenville holds many opportunities for every and any body.
I moved here 2 years ago from Miami, Fl. I absolutely love it. The weather is perfect , we get 4 seasons ,lots of places to hike and downtown offers great restaurants. This town is small compared to Miami but its young,fresh vibe is raising this town to be a vibrant city with great potential for new companies and small businesses. Cost of living is a plus and the small town charm and southern culture is still very much alive. People are friendly and pets are welcome just about everywhere. And did I mention, no traffic!
