Here is the portion about Greenville:

Greenville
City planners needing inspiration for how to revitalize a downtown need look no further than Greenville.
In the early 1970s, city leaders began thinking about what downtown should look like in 40 years. This led to the transformation of Main Street. What was once a nondescript four-lane thoroughfare lined with vacant buildings is now a two-lane street shaded by trees, with not a vacant storefront in sight. A highway bridge was removed, revealing the natural beauty of Reedy Falls. A pedestrian bridge was constructed and green space developed around the tumbling cascade of water.
Greenville History Tours ($12-$45) offers both driving and walking tours that detail the city’s transformation while pointing out architectural highlights. Guide John Nolan also takes visitors on culinary tours, where they can sample the fare at many of Greenville’s top restaurants. 864-567-3940, greenvillehistorytours.com.

I can speak about a couple of those places.

Cherokee Foothills is one of my favorite drives in the state. When my Dad lived in Campobello, we'd go to Landrum for lunch. Neat little town that reinvented itself after textiles died. If you come off I-26 and head west on 11, it's almost all beautiful. But especially from Greenville and west.

On the flip side, I'd much prefer Fort Moultrie over Fort Sumter any day. I now that Sumter is much better known, but the location of Moutrie is much better.

I need to visit Aiken. I've been in the area for work, but never spent time looking around.

Aiken is nice. If I am able to take a day trip, that is where I am going.
