Downtown Greenville, Greenville

Greenville’s downtown has long been one of the Upstate’s most popular destinations for shopping, dining and entertainment. 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. 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.
