It’s not called Greenville for nothing
< Back to Living Here

Greenville is green, alright. The area has one of the most extensive greenway systems in the state and with an average of 213 days of sunshine a year, there’s plenty of time to enjoy all the area has to offer in its great outdoors.


There are dozens of outdoor recreation options including the 324-acre River Park North, the Greenville Town Common, and the six-mile Greenville Greenway System, not to mention more than 30 parks and six golf and country clubs. A brand new 163-acre adventure park serves as a destination for outdoor recreational activities including a kayak/boat launch dock, bicycle skills course, six-miles of mountain bike trails, walking trails, and playgrounds.

Water Recreation

Located along the banks of the Tar River in eastern North Carolina’s Inner Banks, the area is laced with broad river estuaries, inlets, bays, and slow-moving rivers that offer outdoor enthusiasts boating, kayaking, fishing, hiking, camping, and birding all four seasons of the year thanks to the area’s mild climate.


A strong baseball and softball culture exists in the area, with Greenville serving as home to the Little League Softball World Series (LLSWS) as part of a five-year agreement and teams making it to the Little League World Series (LLWS) on more than one occasion. Plus, it seems like the entire region turns out for ECU Pirate football, baseball, and basketball games.

“Our combination of affordability, convenient locations, excellent industry support services, quality medical care, transportation infrastructure, entertainment options, outdoor amenities, and welcoming community make Greenville-Pitt County an attractive destination to visit, live, and to locate or expand any business.”
