By D. Lanier Shook                                              July 15, 2014

Asheville is a great place to live for many, many reasons. In the top ten — maybe even the top five — is how close it is to so many amazing places. Greenville, South Carolina is at the top of the list of those places and Heritage Green is one reason why and here are five reasons you should drive the hour to visit Heritage Green.

Heritage Green contains six different experiences, all located within walking distances of Greenville’s vibrant downtown. You can enjoy breakfast in one of the cafes before strolling over to one of six locations. After a morning of browsing you can walk back to the tree lined streets for a leisurely lunch. A great afternoon of art and history can be followed by a dinner in one of downtown’s restaurants. Then you could stroll back to Heritage Green for a play.
