Everyone’s bucket-list is filled with amazing plans. Some hope to experience the ancient culture of Machu Picchu while others dream of setting off on an African safari in Zambia. But did you know that our very own Greenville was rated one of the best cities in the U.S. in this year’s Reader’s Choice Awards? While it doesn’t have thousands of years of history or a herd of elephants to its name, there are still plenty of reasons why the gorgeous upstate has made Conde Nast’s Traveler’s list of places to visit in May.  

Outdoor Festivals 

Some of the city’s best annual events occur in May. Visit the Saturday Market on Main Street at McBee Avenue to shop for fresh, local produce. Greenville also hosts an outdoor concert series called Soundcheck that is scheduled for every Wednesday night at the Peace Center Amphitheatre. In support of local artists, the city also has an outdoor art festival every May called “Artisphere” where locals and tourists alike come from all over the state to experience pure creativity.

Hikes and Views

Upstate SC is one of the most ideal areas to explore the great outdoors with its proximity to multiple state parks and the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains. Greenville also promotes green travel by foot and bike through the paths and parks throughout the city. With the weather warming up, May is the perfect time to get moving in Greenville.

Local Fare

Greenville boasts over the 100+ completely local-owned restaurants throughout the city. This May, the city expects a new hotel, AC Hotel located on Main Street, to feature new drink and food options you’ll have to try. An added plus, the hotel features works from over 100 local artists that you’ll get to view while indulging in the new menu.
