Art plays an integral role in enriching the mind, body, and soul, and this city knows how to bring the arts to each of its residents. Artisphere is a signature South Carolina cultural event submerging locals and tourists alike in the lively art scene of Greenville. It allows everyone to inundate themselves with the sights and sounds of the local culture.

There’s no food scene like the southern food scene and Fall for Greenville is the bell of the ball. Get lost in delectable flavors while listening to celebrated musicians fill the air with rhythmic sounds that move the body and heart.
Local flavor is heavily appreciated in Greenville. Every Saturday from May to October, the city hosts the TD, Saturday Market. This is the place to find the best locally crafted goods. March through August, locals head to Main Street on Thursday nights for Downtown Alive! The street is filled with music, and there are drinks for everyone to enjoy.
If it’s a big show that locals crave, Bon Secours Wellness Arena fits the bill. At the arena, guests enjoy hockey matches, live music performances, other sporting events, and family shows. For a taste of history, stop by the History Museum of Upcountry South Carolina. This highly informative museum is great for a rainy day or cosmopolitan afternoon.
Getting active is easy to do in a city with such splendid natural sights as Greenville. Residents enjoy ice skating at Ice on Main and Unity Park preserves nature and good old-fashioned fun.

Cleveland Park is a classic park with eye-catching play equipment and room to roam and play. While Falls Park provides a luscious array of shades of green complemented by the rushing sapphire waters of the river. It’s the city's heart, coupling the old with the new; the quiet stroll with the busy city sounds. It links the town together.
