With nearly 300 year of history, Greenville has thrived on southern charm to become one of North Carolina’s leading leisure destinations. Not to be confused with Greenville County of South Carolina, Greenville is an important part of North Carolina’s Tidewater and Coastal Plain area. The city was ranked one of the nation’s “Best Small Places for Business and Careers” in 2012 by Forbes as well as one of “America’s Best Communities for Young People” by the America’s Promise Alliance. As such, it has a growing university-medical community alongside a strong industrial community. In addition, there are about 3.9 million visitors to Greenville County each year, generating around $1.15 billion in visitor expenditures alone. Needless to say, this visitor hub is alive with things to do and sights to see, from waterfront activities along the Tar River to preservations of the city’s history in downtown Greenville.

Day Trips Near Greenville
Pick a destination anywhere along North Carolina’s coast, and you have a great day trip from Greenville. Millions head out to the eastern seaboard each year to enjoy the state’s coast for the 300+ miles of barrier island beaches and dozens of picturesque beach towns. Edenton, claimed to be one of “America’s Prettiest Towns,” is just over an hour’s drive northeast of Greenville. There’s Nags head and the Outer Banks, just a little over two hours away. Heading about an hour southeast will get you to New Bern, a small coastal town with the spirit of a big city. If you really want to explore, Cedar Island is a small fishing village in eastern North Carolina known for its seafood, wildlife and unique way of life. Cities more inland from the coast and close enough for a daytrip from Greenville include Washington, the first American city named after George Washington; Raleigh, the state capital; and Rocky Mount, home of the Historic Rocky Mount Mills Village.
Most accommodations in Greenville can be found in the west, which gives visitors closer access to the cultural amenities and services of Raleigh. Accommodations range from moderately priced inns and motels to name-brand hotels and lodgings. There’s a large cluster of accommodations just south of the medical district, and another located in the Belvedere neighborhood. The eastern section of the city, on the other hand, has slim pickings in terms of inns, motels and hotels.
