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.
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!
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.
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 are a member of the American Athletic Conference. Just want to get outdoors? Hike, fish, golf, paddle, boat, bike…or enjoy yourself at one of our seasonal festivals.
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.
