Welcome to Greenville, SC!

Welcome to Greenville, our new home!

Located in the northwest corner of South Carolina known as “The Upstate,” Greenville is the sixth largest city in the state. Located approximately halfway between Atlanta GA and Charlotte NC, it is in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains and only 3.5 hours from Charleston and the Atlantic Ocean.

Ranked as the 5th most “Fun, Affordable City” in the US by, the newly revitalized downtown area boasts almost 100 restaurants and pubs, hosts free special events and concerts all year round, and is a cultural center with museums, galleries, theatre venues and library.

Filled with fun things to do for the entire family in every price range, our experience in Greenville will be completely different this time around. Lauris was not yet six months old when we moved away, so being here with a 7 month old and a 2.5 year old makes a big difference in the way we see the city.

The irony in this post is that I’m writing it from Chicago where we are visiting family, so there might be a few Chi-town related posts mixed in. However it will be back to Greenville soon enough, where we will continue our mission to explore the region.

The website for the City of Greenville can be found here and the Wikipedia entry is here. What would you like to see while you're visiting me here?



  1. Welcome home, Liene! This will be a big change from your old digs in the center of France! I can't wait to hear about your adventures in the US of A! Bon weekend! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  2. Welcome to one of the most beautiful place to call home. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have for the past year.

  3. Your new city sounds like a great place Liene!

  4. Looks like you've found a lovely new home :-)

  5. Hope Greenville is not too different from France, except for the food and language of course. Enjoy balmy weather!

  6. I know that we will see Greenville different the second time around with the kids. I was there as a single gal and definitely didn't see all the charm the city had to offer. I hope you are settling in okay.

  7. I look forward to hearing more about Greenville - and am happy to detect a hint of excitement about your city. I've noticed my transition back has started to ease up. I'm not so sad all the time. Are you feeling better too? I hope so! Hugs!
