Greenville At A Glance
Welcome to Family-Friendly Greenville!
Whether or not you’ve finalized your decision to move to Greenville, it’s always a good idea to become familiar with an area before you jump right in. The helpful South Carolina movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage are here to share some insight about your soon to be new city of Greenville.
You’ll find Greenville, South Carolina just a few miles south of the magnificently scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. Being named one of the fastest growing cities in the United States by CNN Money, and the third strongest job market by Bloomberg, Greenville’s residents get to experience best of both worlds in this scenic paradise, also the business center of the upstate area and the manufacturing center of South Carolina.
Greater Greenville, commonly referred to as the Upstate, includes the cities of Greenville, Greer, Simpsonville, Taylors, Travelers Rest, Fountain Inn, Mauldin, as well as Anderson, Pickens, and Spartanburg counties.
If you enjoy the great outdoors, your move to Greenville will feel complete once you step away from the city. Paris Mountain State Park is a short seven-mile commute from Greenville, but it feels a world away from modern civilization. You have the options to hike, jog, or bike along the trails, or simply enjoy an afternoon walk while you look for deer and other amazing wildlife amongst the trees. Just watch where you step! Rattlesnakes make their home in this area.
Greenville is upstate South Carolina’s shopping headquarters. You’ll find a wide range of national retailers, antique stores, specialty boutiques, and even factory outlets all up and down the streets of the city. You can also head downtown for a scenic shopping experience. Turn onto Augusta Road for fine boutiques, hit the West End Market and Historic District for unique shops, or cruise on over to Haywood Road and indulge in the Haywood Mall and surrounding areas for options to keep you occupied all day and all-night long.
Few cities strive to maintain their reputation as kid-friendly place as much as Greenville does. Your child will love visiting the Children’s Museum, the Greenville County Library, the interactive Children’s Garden and the Greenville Zoo. Greenville’s Recreation Division offers a host of youth programs and events. It also organizes sports teams for baseball, football, basketball, golf, and inline hockey, just to name a few.
If you enjoy museums and fine art, visiting the Greenville County Museum of Art is a must-see after your move to Greenville. This museum has a plethora of works of art by Southern artists spanning over several centuries. The Upcountry History Museum also shares interesting stories of upstate South Carolina and how Greenville and the surrounding area became what they are today.
