Discover Greenville, South Carolina
Forbes Magazine named Greenville one of “America’s Best Downtowns,” and it’s no wonder. Featuring a one-of-a-kind “floating” suspension bridge and set against the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville is home to a vibrant arts scene, popular annual festivals, plus numerous historic sites and museums. Excellent interstate access and nearby Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) make for easy travel to and from Greenville.
On historic Augusta Road, less than a mile from downtown Greenville, and bordered by some of the Upstate’s most desirable neighborhoods, you’ll find one of Greenville’s oldest and most prestigious shopping districts. Augusta Street, or Augusta Road as it is referred to locally, is home to some of the finest boutiques in the Upstate. A variety of specialty shops, fine clothing stores, flower shops, health food markets, and decorating resource centers can be found near old-fashioned hardware stores and a wide range of restaurants. Augusta Road is also the location of Greenville’s first, and still very active, shopping center. The businesses in this area not only provide convenient shopping to support the nearby neighborhoods, but also attract visitors from across the city and beyond. For decades, the Augusta Road area has been regarded as one of the Upstate’s most coveted areas to live, work, and play.
