Here are 4 free activities to do in Greenville: (There are many more, but these are some of my favorites!)
1. Visit to Falls Park/Reedy River
Falls Park is definitely one of Greenville’s finest features. Located in the heart of Greenville, it is truly the focal point of the downtown area. The Liberty Bridge is a must see at night, when the lights of the town mingle with the architecture of the suspension bridge and the natural beauty of the Reedy River to make an unforgettable image. Often, there are plays going on in the grassy areas and outdoor theaters.
While there, take a visit to the lesser known Children’s Garden. (During the summer, the “Five Senses” garden features blueberries and blackberries, and they looked like they’d be ready later this week or next…if no one eats them all first!)
2. Play Miniature Golf at McPherson Park
Bring your own golf ball and putters, and you can play as much free miniature golf as your heart desires. (You can, of course, often find “lost” golf balls in the nearby creeks, and could pick up a putter at one of Greenville’s many thrift stores.)
3. Find the Mice on Main
Find the Mice on Main is a free scavenger hunt. There are 9 bronze mice sculptures to be found on Main Street in downtown Greenville. As you search for these little mice, you’ll also have fun exploring Greenville’s downtown. The city of Greenville offers a fun little booklet with hints as to the mice’s whereabouts, and you can also download a list of hints here, and you can also pick up a list at the Mast General Store, also on Main Street.
4. Visit Furman Lake at Furman University
