Because of Greenville’s compact size, exploring the entire downtown area from one end to the other is very doable in one day, say our Forbes Travel Guide editors. Greenville has a vibrant downtown area with so much to do, see and experience that walking provides the most convenient way to see the city. Take advantage of the low rates at any of the local parking garages, wear a pair of comfortable shoes and set out to see the sights. Locally owned cafés and restaurants line the nine-block stretch of Main Street, making it easy to stop and enjoy a quick bite or a cup of coffee while exploring all the unique gift and retail shops located up and down Main Street and the adjacent side streets. Overall, Greenville’s weather is mild, so you can stroll outside during any season; but don’t forget sunscreen and remember that afternoon showers are not unusual most of the year.
