The Lonely Planet description:
“A waterfall tumbles through the heart of Greenville, a small Southern city packed tight with cultural and culinary distractions. Outdoor adventure is a big draw too, with state parks nestled in the folds of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains. In downtown Greenville a 10-block stretch of Main Street hums with pedestrian friendly commerce. Twinkling white lights in the treetops and public art on the sidewalks tie the street together with aesthetically pleasing zing. This inviting scene is the result of a downtown revitalization project that began in the 1970s. Its goal? Attracting industry while improving the quality of life.”
