Was on my way to Charlotte, NC and stopped in Greenville, SC for two days, stayed at the Best Western, Airport, not knowing the area, I was given a book to look through "A Look At Greenville" and the people at the hotel couldn't have been more helpful giving me directions to restaurants and local Walmart.

Took a tour of downtown, went to Fall Park, what a beautiful park, we sat and watched the waterfalls and was amazed at how well kept the whole area was. Next rode around trying to find the Museum of Art, which we finally located, since hubby is a docent at a local museum here in FL he wanted to see what the local museum held. Interesting that the museum was "free" and that they did not have any docent tours, but we did go from floor to floor and it was a well spent afternoon.


The rains came, so rather than roam around in the rain back to our hotel we went, we did eat at some of the restaurants and had lunch at the local Chic Fil A and let me tell you, the people there to were very friendly, they gave us maps and told us about some of the local things to do. Unfortunately, our visit was short and I didn't get a chance to roam around some more, but I have to say I was impressed with the people and the whole area.

Saw the BMW plant and of course, saw several BMW's being driven so I'm assuming that it is one of the bigger local employers in the area.

I hope to be able to get back to Greenville again.........I was impressed

Default Greenville

I hope you do get to return soon--there is a lot you did not have time for. I am glad you thought everyone was friendly--we are known for loving to talk. Yes BMW is one of our larger employers. We also have Michelin, GE and several others. Thanks for the input & hope you return soon!

If you are into museums, you must see the Bob Jones University Art Museum. It's not on the downtown campus, but on the one east of town. It is SO worth your visit. The art is all religious, naturally, but the quality is superb. I especially enjoyed the antique furniture and artifacts. We were there two hours, but it really wasn't long enough. We'll have to make another visit. Highly worth your time! There is also another building on that campus which houses more art that we didn't get to see.
