    The hidden gem in the heart of Greenville, Falls Park on the Reedy is everything a park should be.

    We entered the park by way of Pedrick Garden at Falls Park, walked over a small bridge and down a side road to the park.  We were able to get a great view of Liberty Bridge and could hear the falls.

    Surrounded by restaurants, cafes and hotels all within walking distance, Falls Park boasts lush greenery lined paved walkways with benches and swings to sit, relax and enjoy the views and sounds of the falls.  There are large open green spaces available for kids to play, families to picnic and relax and pets to roam.

    The park was busy on the Saturday we visited, yet it did not feel crowded. There was plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the area.

    A true gem for nature lovers!

    Take a stroll across Liberty Bridge to get the most expansive view of Reedy River Falls. Enjoy listening to the flow of water, natural white noise. From the bridge you will be able to see adults, kids, and dogs on the rocks below enjoying the shallow areas of the falls.

    We were not able to fully explore the area to our liking due to our time constraints.

    So we look forward to returning for a long weekend to explore this amazing park, the Greenville downtown and the surrounding areas soon.

    Saw Mrs. Doubtfire last night and the facility was super! Very friendly staff, neat and clean and plenty of leg room. Able to find parking very close (Block away) and those handicapped individuals can be dropped off at the door!

    We rode this trail from the Swamp Rabbit Cafe to Furman University and back. Parking at the Cafe was tight on a Saturday but we found a space. The cafe was quite busy. We rode towards Furman University and the trail was pretty full of bikers and walkers. The highlight of the trip was getting to Furman and seeing the lovely lake and the rose garden on the campus. Just gorgeous! And having the cafe waiting for us at the end on our way back was another highlight! If at all possible, I would recommend this trail on a weekday to avoid the crowds.

    My conference didn't start until 10 am so I made may way down the park and of course across this beautifully designed bridge. The falls make such a pleasant peaceful sound and you can almost forgot you are in the middle of downtown Greenville. I highly recommend crossing this bridge if you have the time.

    Sadly, the Bob Jones Museum & Gallery is still basically closed after 7 years. It's only open for arranged tours. Otherwise, you can visit the chapel on the campus with its collection of Benjamin West art. If you can get inside, the art not packed up or on loan is a remarkable collection of religious art from the 14th century through the 18th century. Hopefully, the museum, its affiliated university, the city, and stakeholders can find a solution because this needs to re-open.

    My primary reason to visit was to see the Red Panda which are my favorite animal. It was a Red Panda overload in a good way with 4 red pandas on display and out eating their morning meal. Looks like 2 of them are recent babies and were so adorable. They all stayed out active for quite a while.

    They have quite a few animals that have babies on display which says a lot about their animal program and the SSP- survival species program.

    You can feed a giraffe if you want. The lions were their usual lazy selves and sleeping. It is a nice little zoo that has good animals for the size of the zoo.

    We had two three-year olds and a six year old with us and they had a great time. Their favorite areas included the area with cars you can race, the grocery store, and the farm area. We were there on a weekday with several school groups there so it was very loud and hectic.

    It had been over 50 years since I had visited Poinsett Bridge. The area is beautiful and is well taken care of. In the early 1950's, many boy scouts and their leaders would hike down from Camp Old Indian to the bridge. The area just below the bridge was known as "Old Slickum" because of the smooth rocks. The scouts would slide down the rocks. They had to quit doing that because when the road was paved, lots of gravel ended up in the creek bed. This is well worth the visit.

    A beautiful well maintained place to explore. We wanted to get some exercise and explore. Only 15-20 min from downtown. So many well marked trails for all abilities. We hiked the Brissy ridge trail. The South Carolina woods was beautiful.

    Saw Kiss of Death Tour here with Ice Nine Kills, Avatar, New Years Day and In This Moment. Parking was easy and right next to the building in a secure parking Garage at reasonable rates. Small Merch stand at the entrance and larger ones inside around the venue. If your hungry or thirsty they have plenty of snack stands and places to get a drink. We had no issues finding our seats, since they were on the floor and we went right to the front of the stage. Great show and great facility. We'll be back for others and looking forward to it.
