It was BEAUTIFUL! One of the coolest towns we've seen....lots and lots of huge shade trees, great shopping district, upscale hotels, designer boutiques, restored 19th century brick buildings, great glass and steel architecture, and tons of cool one-of-a-kind eating joints. There are sitting areas in the midst of beautiful plantings everywhere, even under a bridge, where there were little bistro tables and chairs to have lunch outdoors at.
Then, there is the beautiful Falls Park that has the Liberty Bridge, a 355 foot suspension bridge held by two 15 degree angled trusses supporting only ONE SIDE of the bridge that hangs over a 60 foot waterfall on the Reedy River. It's like being in a botanical garden as you walk the grounds that are landscaped with native plants and flowers. Then there's the Swamp Rabbit Trail--18 miles plus of a beautiful walking, hiking or biking trail (lots of luck going up and down the hills!)
It was a great way to spend the afternoon, and the rain held off...We were VERY impressed on the beauty of Greenville in our short time here...Great restaurants, clean city, lots of history here, beautiful architecture, we'll be back another day to spend more time and explore this beautiful town.....
