This is maybe the most positive and informative article ever written in an "outside" newspaper about Greenville. Fantastic!

If that is the true, then many of us are also on the payroll, including the authors of several articles shared in this thread. Instead of drawing a salary, we enjoy the generous benefit of having experienced a taste of the good life in the city.

That is a well written article and quite informative for those who aren't aware of the annual Euphoria festival.

""There's more foreign direct investment per capita in Greenville County than anywhere in the United States," said Michael Fanning"
"There's 350 U.S. operations of international companies located in the county. Michelin has a research and development facility with 900 engineers from 30 different countries. You walk down the streets of Greenville and you'll hear Japanese, French [and] German."
"This is the best American downtown redevelopment I have seen since the San Antonio River Walk. "

Great quotes in this article!!
