Free Ride In Greenville

There is so much happening in the downtown area these days. Just one of the many fun things you can do is enjoy a trolley ride of downtown.  Thanks to the City of Greenville and the Greenville Drive. The trolleys travel downtown from West Earle Street on the north end to Fields Street on the south end. The trolleys stop at any intersection when hailed by a rider. The trolleys seat 35 passengers, the ride takes about 45 minutes, and did I mention it is free!

Greenville is such a great place to live and work, one of the many things our great city does is grow and change with the times.  I have lived in the Greenville area all my life; I grew up in Taylors and have lived in Powdersville for 20 yrs. I have seen the many changes our great city has made; the most impressive to me was in the 70’s when the city began the Main Street revitalization project. At that time, I was a teenager and on the weekends in Greenville, the thing to do was drag Main Street. We as teenagers were not happy about this plan, but now I am so thankful the city made those changes.

 In the 80’s, the residents of Greenville truly began to see a transformation of our down town area. It was just the beginning, our city has never stopped, in the 80’s; the new vision was that “by the year 2000,Greenville will have a thriving downtown which is recognized nationally as an example of a ‘state-of-the-art’ community in which to live, work, and play, and which serves in itself as a national attraction.” The 90’s brought The Peace Center, and The BI-LO center. 2000 brought Falls Park on The Reedy. 2004 bought Liberty Bridge.

Truly downtown’s success can be attributed to a plan and a city’s commitment to sustain an environment which creates opportunities and I am so glad this philosophy continues today. I Love This City. Thankful for Greenville’s Downtown Revitalization and the great things still to come. One to watch is the Stone Avenue Project.
