I consider Greenville to be the Las Vegas of North Carolina, without all the nightlife. There is a reason the locals call it G-Vegas! Expect many stop lights on Greenville Blvd that will require you to travel for up to 20 minutes in a stretch of four miles, especially during the academic sessions of East Carolina University. Many great areas for food and shopping, but not much nightlife entertainment for the older adult crowd, excluding the college students. Great area for college students and families, but not great for older singles or couples with no children.

Greenville is an up & coming town in North Carolina! In just 2 years of living here, I have watched it grow. The city is constantly opening new and fun places to go and new things to do. I love the feel of downtown. The traffic is really bad, and there is a lack of greenways and parks. I would love this town more if it was "greener" and outdoor friendly. The nightlife is good & there are a lot of great opportunities here!
Greenville is a city that has a lot to offer. From college football to family friendly parks to delicious local restaurants there is plenty of great activities to do without having to drive too far. There is a great nightlife downtown with several bars and clubs. All throughout the city there is a variety of shops and boutiques along with a mall. There are also many apartment complexes and safe neighborhoods to live. Greenville also offers many medical practices and an amazing hospital with generous staff!
