The readers of Conde Nast’s Traveler magazine, one of the most highly-regarded and awarded travel magazines in the country, have chosen Greenville as the No. 3 Small City in the country.
The magazine, which has won 25 National Magazine Awards and has a circulation of around 800,000, received hundreds of thousands of votes for their annual Big City and Small City categories, and Greenville came in behind only Aspen, Colo. at No. 2 and another South Carolina city, Charleston, at No. 1. This is Greenville’s first appearance on the Reader’s Choice list.
Greenville’s entry reads as follows:
“Want to get in on a secret? Plan a trip to Greenville now and you might see it just on the cusp of stardom. The up-and-coming food lover’s town is getting its own outpost of Sean Brock’s Husk and its first food hall in late-2017, and its farm-to-table scene is rising to the ranks of Asheville (try Jianna for Italian and Vault & Vator, the city’s first speakeasy, after). Walk off your food coma across the 32-acre Falls Park that runs through the middle of town before going back for seconds.”
