Southern Charm Meets
New Investment:

With a rich history dating back more than 300 years, Greenville embraces its distinct Carolina culture. While retaining southern charm in historic old towns and its welcoming ways, Greenville, is investing and growing like never before. More than $661 million of private and public money has been invested in the Uptown Greenville District since 2010, giving rise to everything from a new town common, transportation center, and shopping districts. Local businesses, breweries, theaters,  new restaurants, and much more have also been popping up. The Greenville Convention Center, with 91,000 square feet of newly-renovated event space on 32 sprawling acres of convention campus, has been expanding and the area offers plenty of hotels to host business and leisure travelers.
