Plenty of bustle—without the hustle.

As a cultural and educational hub, Greenville combines big-city resources with truly enjoyable—and affordable—living conditions. It’s busy, but there’s room to breathe. It’s big, but it’s front-porch friendly. It’s a great place to raise a family—but there’s more than enough to do when you’re looking for an exciting night on the town.

It's so livable.

One thing’s for sure—Greenville is a livable city. Housing costs are lower than the state and national average, and the public schools rank among North Carolina’s best. The city bus system makes getting around easy (and there’s also a growing bike/pedestrian corridor). Getting to and from the area is a snap, too: I-95 is close by, the Pitt-Greenville Airport is just three miles from Vidant Medical Center and Raleigh-Durham International airport is less than 100 miles west.

GREENVILLE POPULATION 90,000 (2013 estimate)

PITT COUNTY POPULATION 174,263 (2013 estimate)


COST OF LIVING 10.3% below national average




Whatever your idea of fun is, you’ll find it here—whether it’s watching a local artisan throw clay or watching the East Carolina University Pirates (ECU) throw a football. Is shopping your thing? From malls to farmers’ markets, from antiques to boutiques—Greenville’s got it all.

A thriving arts scene...

Museums and galleries, concerts, dance, film, theater—just name your medium. Greenville’s also home to ECU, which presents numerous events and exhibits throughout the year, on campus and off.

Sportstown, USA...

Sports Illustrated recognized Greenville as a “Sportstown” with good reason. The city has more than 20 parks, including Extreme Park, where you can watch local BMX pros practice (the city has become a mecca for BMX pro riders). Discover our longstanding Little League tradition and see our teams win yet another state baseball championship or softball world series. Or come root for the Pirates, who recently advanced to the AAC East Division. Just want to get outdoors? Hike, fish, golf, bike…or have a blast at one of our seasonal festivals.

Food and drink...

With so much to do in and around Greenville, you’ll work up a hearty appetite—and Greenville has more than 300 restaurants and eateries to explore, from local favorites (we do like to boast about our barbecue) to eclectic international cuisine. Plus, the nearby coast brings in the very best seafood.

Of course, here at Vidant Health, we love calling Greenville-Pitt County home, and we think you will too—but don’t just take our word for it. America’s Promise Alliance voted Greenville “Best Community for Young People,” and Forbes ranks the city #6 in “Best Small Places for Business and Careers.” Greenville is an innovative, vibrant place that’s always changing, and always inspiring. We hope you’ll explore!
