The city of Greenville, South Carolina, is the oldest in the group at 170 years old and has one of the South's most historic districts. It is also recognized nationally as one of the fastest-growing cities in the region.

Spring brings lush green trees and brilliant blooms, while fall is a lovely season for hikers and bikers because the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains' foliage bursts into color.
Greenville is located along Interstate 85, which runs through the city and connects with other major thoroughfares like I-85, U.S. Highway 25, and others. The Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) serves flights from five major carriers.
