WOW - Greenville is one of the coolest towns in THE US!!
This year’s list of coolest towns in America was written by Matthew Meltzer, Noelle Alejandra Salmi, and Laura Reilly, with nominations from the entire Matador Network staff.
In their article, Greenville SC was the first they listed - but they did say they were in no particular order. They looked at towns across the US with populations under 100,000, from a California beach town with some of the best surfing in the world to the Hawaiian islands, and found the ultimate collection of towns where people can live or have a wonderful vacation!! So what did they say about Greenville? Below is the article as they wrote it!
No small city in America punches above its culinary weight quite like Greenville, a city of just over 67,000 with restaurants better than cities ten times its size. In a 10-block radius near its downtown, you can find over 120 locally-owned spots. You can stroll down Main Street to one of the best burger joints in America at Grill Marks, head across the Reedy River to the James Beard-nominated The Anchorage, or cool off with a drink on the best rooftop bar in South Carolina at Up on the Roof. But it’s not all calorie consumption in this underrated hotbed of Southern cuisine. Calorie burning is equally enjoyable along the Swamp Rabbit trail, a calm, woodsy recreational trail perfect for biking down to the town of Travelers Rest. To get further into nature, drive a short ways to Caesar’s Head State Park where a four-mile trail takes you to the spectacular Ravens Cliff Falls, where changing colors make for perfect fall photo-ops.
