At the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains there's Greenville and Spartanburg, an upstate gem of a city, and soon it will be yours for the discovering. You can take it all in at Paris Mountain State Park. Closer to home there's the Falls Park on the Reedy and Lake Conestee Nature Park. The mountains form part of the Appalachian Chain, but their unique "blue" color sets them apart and makes them favorite subjects of photographers and artists. They will impress you too.
The arts take center stage in this city known for its state-of-the-art venues. The Peace Center for the Performing Arts, home of the Greenville Symphony, Carolina Ballet Theatre, and South Carolina Children's Theatre. The Bi-Lo Center is frequently included in lists of the best venues in the world. Visual art is just as prized. A few galleries you'll see around town include the Christopher Park Gallery and Art Crossing at River Place.
However, keep in mind that not all art is indoors. Some of it can be found just in a walk down the street, and in admiration of different forms of architecture. The West End District is where you can trace Greenville's roots. The Warehouse Theatre, opened in an old factory warehouse in 1973, is now the centerpiece of downtown. Falls Park is right off the edge of this district of downtown, making a smooth segue from city to country. Greenville is all about urban comfort in the midst of rustic beauty: a winning combination, as you'll soon discover.
One of those urban comforts is the thrill of the bargain hunt. If that sounds good to you, go shopping on Woodruff Road--there you'll find a Barnes and Noble, Lowe's, PF Chang's, Panera Bread, Ann Taylor Loft, and Best Buy. You don't have to go to a bigger city to get great shopping. All of your favorite stores are right here. There's even a Whole Foods.
If you're moving to Greenville with a family in tow, you'll be delighted to know that Greenville and Spartanburg have enough between them to entertain even the antsiest group of kids. Children can learn about the world around them--and have fun doing it--at the Children's Museum of the Upstate. Another edifying trip for the whole family is the UpCountry History Museum, where you'll learn about how Greenville became the upstate's biggest success story. Finally, kids of all ages with an interest in "planes, trains, and automobiles" can get their fix at the BMW Zentrum museum.
