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.

My overall experience being in Greenville has been great! I Love the area because it reminds me of back home in Virginia. Virginia is where I came from and the country side is where I grew up. This area also reminds me of home because of how some good people are and how spacious and how you can see stores from where you stay at sometimes and as I got older I always wanted to be at a place that I can call home, not only calling home but knowing that it's home.
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!
