We’ve got some exciting news for you today, GVL. DYK our city is the friendliest city in the country? Well, according to Condé Nast Traveler’s 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards, we are.


Each year, Condé Nast asks their readers to vote on which city they feel is the friendliest. This was Greenville’s first year gracing the list, and we came in at no. 1.

CNT highlights Greenville’s farm-to-table movement, our craft beer scene, and our natural resourcesFalls Park + the Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail – as potential reasons for travelers falling in love with our city. We might be a bit biased, but we think it’s pretty easy.

We may have come out on top, but three of our sister market cities also ranked on this year’s list (hey, CHStoday, NOOGAtoday + AVLtoday 👋).

We love ya, GVL – thanks for being no. 1.
