After living in Greenville for 20 years, I continue to believe that the food and drink options here are very diverse. I have gotten somewhat exhausted with my options since I have seen every last sidewalk crack in the city, eaten practically every meal available here, and have tried to find something intriguing to do to keep my interest up in the city. For the most part, to visit or to live here for a few years, Greenville is fabulous!

I think the police presence in Greenville is better than most, but their response time for certain events (ex: car accident) aren't always the quickest.
This town is definitely a great place to live, in my opinion, compared to many other area in the world.
