Once known for its textile and other manufacturing plants, Greenville has reinvented itself as a trendy and sophisticated city able to support a surprising number of restaurants, galleries, and boutiques along a tree-lined Main Street that passes a stunning natural waterfall. Anchored by two performance centers, the city's business district is alive well into most evenings with couples and families enjoying the energy of this revitalized Southern city. Downtown development has been so successful that many young professionals are moving here and creating interesting living spaces from old warehouses and retail establishments. Downtown festivals are held most weekends along tree-lined Main Street.
