Greenville has received countless accolades over the past few years, and continues to attract national attention on a near monthly basis. Livability ranked Greenville’s downtown among the top 10 in the country, CBS News called Greenville one of “2015’s Hottest Vacation Destinations,” Forbes has listed Greenville as one of the “15 Best Cities for Young Adults” and as one of the “Top Cities With the Greatest Capacity for Innovation” and The New York Times called Greenville “a national model for a pedestrian-friendly city center.”

Additionally, Greenville has appeared on Relocate America’s annual “Top 10 Best Cities to Live” list and AARP’s “Top 10 Places to Retire,” was named one of the “Top 10 Micro American Cities of the Future” by and was one of Men’s Journal’s “Best Places to Live in the United States.” Even now, Falls Park, which features the Liberty Bridge, a world-class suspension bridge spanning the Reedy River and its impressive series of falls, is one of five finalists for the 2015 Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence.
Based on the amount of attention that Greenville has received, it appears that the rest of the country has finally discovered what those who live and work here have always known – that Greenville’s aptitude for fostering public-private partnerships, combined with an abundance of quality of life amenities, make it one of the most desirable places to live and do business in the United States.
