I got in on a deal a few weeks ago for a $1.50 for a year subscription to Garden & Gun. Thought the name sounded really interesting! Just got my first issue today and there's a 10 page spread on Greenvlle. I checked and it's not online yet but maybe they'll put it up in a bit. I'm dying to visit your lovely city again and would love to make it my new home!

Forgive me, but what is Garden & Gun? I'm not familiar with it.

It's a magazine. I'd never heard of it either. It's about the south. Thought I'd give it a try for $1.50 year subscription. My first issue came today and it had an article on Greenville called The Sweet Life in Greenville. I hope they'll put the issue online.

It seems to be geared towards a more conservative audience, but looks very well-done and is fairly upscale in outlook.

It's a great magazine. What you would call a "Southern lifestyles" magazine. It is published in Charleston too.

It's a good magazine. Definitely targets wealthy southerners. Lots of Lilly Pulitzer and Southern Tide ads, mixed with modern living, travel, the finer things in life and articles on fox hunts, grilling, antiques, etc.

The article mentions how liberals and conservatives are getting along just fine together in Greenville, how Greenville has room for both.

Very cool.

That's one of the reasons I fell in love with Greenville. As a gay men, my partner and I have friends here all over the spectrum.....liberal, conservative, religious, non religious.

... And Greenville just went up another notch on my short list of places where I might semi-retire in a few years!
