Weather for Greenville South Carolina Forecast

Greenville’s first settler, Richard Pearis, established a plantation in the area that is known today as Downtown Greenville. He built a trading post and a gristmill, and shared the land with a great number of Cherokee Indians. Eventually, a railway opened which played a critical role in the transportation of textiles. Soon, Greenville became recognized as the Textile Capital of the World.


Parks seem to be everywhere in Greenville. Walking and bicycling are favorite past-times of Greenville residents. Reedy River Falls Historic Park features a beautiful water display. Water meanders over large rock formations, and quickly moves down steep falls. Located in downtown, this park offers a wonderful opportunity to take a break from shopping and relax a while. Paris Mountain State Park is located just a short drive from downtown. Its perhaps best known for its excellent mountain bike trails.


Hike deep forest trails and cast your line on hidden trout streams. Try boating on Lake Jocassee or rafting down the Chattooga, one of the great whitewater rivers of the Eastern U.S. From horseback riding in the Blue Ridge Mountains to biking in city parks, to an afternoon on the tennis court or ice skating at the Pavilion - in Greenville, you can play it your way.
