So there you have it, not exhaustive, not full of advertising, just things to do feel free to add your ideas. It seems the city, county, private and public entities have various lists so I compiled from each site and updated old or dead links.

Good and Bad? This is kinda a hard question to answer! I think it depends on what your looking for once you get here. We have lots of things to offer in lots of different areas, most of my clients find its a great town to settle down in and start a family with all the options available for kids. My older retiree clients seem to lean more towards our great medical facilities and the different arts programs offered by the college! As for me I enjoy living in Greenville, I tell people its the "Big" little city with lots of things to do! I guess to sum it up, no matter what your looking for I think Greenville has it to offer! I wish you luck on your move and if you need help with specitif needs please feel free to call on my services, you can find out more by visiting http://www.JesseAllenHomes.com

And so where do these "retirees" end up? Are they in walkable areas, or bound by having a car? As a 51 yr young woman about to leave Chicago, I would appreciate someone from the town talk about the specifics of the neighborhoods/areas of Greenville. Thanks much.
