Ready to dip your toes in the post-pandemic travel pool, while balancing safety with some serious fun factor? Greenville’s got your back.
This Deep South comeback kid has been on my radar for quite sometime now. Free trolley access, low-cost extras and a killer food scene have long made this place a great-value getaway choice. In the past few years, however, the eastern South Carolina city has seriously upped its game. With a unique vibe that blends a high-end art scene with local authenticity, it manages to feel like the quintessential American hometown.
With a significant outdoor art collection, riverfront park access, the popular multi-use Swamp Rabbit Trail and open-air music activities, it’s a getaway that fits in nicely with the newly released health guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For those who prefer the comfort of full amenities, the city’s outdoor urban living focus also means you can easily enjoy an elevated open-air vacation without jumping headlong into the rugged outdoors.
