I grew up in Alabama, where Greenville was an exit on I-65 that meant we were about two hours away from home. When I began to look at Furman, I thought Greenville, South Carolina would be a similar small town with nothing spectacular. Boy, was I wrong.
Greenville, South Carolina has become my home. From the incredible assortment of restaurants to the perfect distances to the beach and the mountains, Greenville is the perfect small city to spend your college years. Let me tell you why.
WOW! If you asked me what my favorite restaurant in Greenville was, you’d be met with a huge sigh and then have to listen to me rattle off my favorite restaurant in each category of food I could come up with. Cantina 76, Jianna, The Lazy Goat, the list is never-ending. Each year I have spent at Furman I have discovered new restaurants that have become some of my favorite spots.
The Active Lifestyle
Saturday morning in downtown Greenville is quite a sight. You’ll see families, runners, bikers, and walkers. We are lucky to have the Swamp Rabbit Trail here which is a twenty-two mile greenway trail for biking, running, and walking that goes straight into downtown. It’s perfect for training for runs, fun bike rides to lunch wth friends, and a reflective walk on a beautiful day. Citizens of Greenville love the outdoors and moving their bodies.
