In her November 8, 2015, blog post, Columbus Culinary Connection food blogger Caroline of Columbus, OH, recommends giving “this beautiful city [Greenville, SC] a try…if you want to conquer a new foodie city.” Like so many others who have stumbled upon—and then fallen in love with—Greenville, Caroline found her visit to be a delicious surprise.

I’ve highlighted some of Caroline’s key comments below and also included some personal experiences Laura and I have had as we’ve gotten to know Greenville.

The first thing that will strike you about Greenville is the beauty of the downtown area,” writes Caroline.

I can tell you Laura literally got teary the first time we drove down Main Street. We both had a vision of the place where we wanted to start the next chapter of our lives and when we saw it, we knew. Downtown Greenville has a welcoming, tree-lined Main Street with people out-and-about enjoying the day; at the same time, it’s a contemporary and hip city that’s looking toward the future.

Caroline continues: “Falls Park on the Reedy River is the heart of it all, the anchor for many of the local restaurants and shops. The waterfall-laden park is breathtaking, filled with picnic areas and pedestrian bridges.

I call Falls Park and the Liberty Bridge “my happy place.” Seeing and hearing the roar of the water as it tumbles over the falls soothes me. When I look around and see others also enjoying the park and having fun, I feel a such a sense of joy.

Caroline also mentions a number of great Greenville restaurants (links provided below). Laura and I have been to all of these and agree that they are wonderful places to hang out, have a drink, and enjoy a delicious meal.

  • High Cotton—Make sure you introduce yourself to the bartender, Wilson…he makes some of the best cocktails in Greenville!
  • Larkin’s On the River—In addition to delicious food and wine, Larkin’s boasts a lovely outdoor patio along the Reedy River.
  • Tupelo Honey Cafe—Laura and I went to the original Tupelo Honey Cafe in Asheville, NC, a beautiful town at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains about an hour north of Greenville.
  • Smoke on the Water—An excellent BBQ place, Smoke on the Water is where we spent a memorable summer evening dining outside in the midst of a thundershower with our friends Debi and Jerry.


Best of all, each of these restaurants is located within blocks of each other and Falls Park. In fact, there are more than 100 different restaurants in downtown Greenville!
