In 2013, Outside Magazine listed Greenville, SC, as one of the “best places to live well.”

According to the magazine, “We wanted a town with ample trailheads, nearby adventure, great farmers’ markets, and, hopefully, a competitive gear-shop scene.”

Greenville, SC, had an enthusiastic following, receiving more readers’ votes than any other city. Here’s a sample of the comments made about Greenville, SC:

  • In the past two decades, this former mill town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains landed big employers like GE, Michelin, and BMW and transformed itself into a small city that’s alive with parks, leafy streets, bike paths, and a thriving foodie scene.
  • There are more than 200 downtown events each year, from a weekly music series (Greenville Heritage Main Street Fridays) to a three-day arts festival (Artisphere) to frequent cycling races (including the 2013 Para-Cycling Open).
  • The weather encourages everyone to get outside. “Ten months out of the year, I can be hiking and biking,” says Brad Willis, a 39-year-old freelance writer.

In Greenville, there is little separation between downtown life and the great outdoors. Spend an afternoon biking on the Swamp Rabbit Trail, then park your bike and have a drink and dinner at one of the great restaurants downtown. There’s no shortage of active things to do in Greenville, SC!
