Greenville, South Carolina was always a place I had been curious about but never actually took the time to come visit. My dad, who does business up this way, would tell me what a great community it was blossoming into, especially for millennials like myself. Little did I realize this girl from Atlanta would soon be moving to this up-and-coming city.
Shortly after moving to Greenville I discovered that the traffic here is amazing. I know that may sound weird with all the construction and the mess that is Woodruff Road. However, when you have lived and worked in Atlanta where the commute time in the morning is anywhere from forty-five minutes (on a good day) to two hours, you start to appreciate the 15 to 20 minute commute!
After about a week or so of settling in, I decided I should get out of my apartment and get some fresh air. I kept seeing, reading and hearing about this Swamp Rabbit Trail and figured I might as well check it out. Being a runner and competing in a few half marathons as well as participating in the Peachtree Road Race every year, I soon found out this trail was the perfect place to train. I also realized I may need a dog since everyone in Greenville seems to have a furry friend tagging along.
Besides the traffic and how into fitness everyone is, I discovered the people of Greenville love to eat. There seems to be a restaurant on every corner and the preferred meal of choice appears to be brunch and tacos, sometimes both at the same place. I have probably consumed more tacos these past two months than I have my entire life and I haven’t found one that I did not like.
As much as I love Atlanta and it will forever have a place in my heart, I have come to really appreciate Greenville these past two months. A town filled with so much charm, history and restaurants and I can’t wait to see what I will discover next.
