Located in the upstate region of South Carolina, Greenville is home to the Roper Mountain Science Center with its 23-inch refractor telescope, the Greenville County Museum of Art with American masterpieces dating back to the 18th century, and Greenville Zoo, which is more than 50 years old. Unsurprisingly, the city’s downtown area is a popular destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. So when you’re renting in Greenville, you should take advantage of the many local services and shopping options throughout the city. Here are a few suggestions to get you started.

The Perfect Gift

If you’re looking for a birthday present, Valentine’s Day gift, or just a token of your love, you’ll find the perfect thing at Ten Thousand Villages. This globally-inspired fair trade store has thousands of unique items handcrafted by artisans located all over the world. Its online gift finder will help you choose from a wide range of unique, colorful items.

Spas and Salons

There’s nothing better than a day at the spa to refresh and rejuvenate your body, and Greenville is home to the elegant River Falls Spa. You and a friend are invited to try the Table For Two luxury spa treatment. Once you’ve exchanged your clothes for a fluffy robe and slippers, you’ll be taken to the spa’s luxury suite, where you and your guest will receive a tailored massage for two followed by a custom-blended hydrotherapy session. If you prefer to go solo, there’s a single-person package which includes a facial, warm stone massage, manicure, and pedicure. Expectant mothers can indulge in some pampering, too, with the Great Expectations package, which is tailored specifically to their needs.

Shopping

Downtown Greenville has long been a favorite destination for shoppers, probably because there are so many retail shops to pick from. Magnolia Park is one of the city’s largest and most popular shopping, dining, and entertainment neighborhoods with more than 800,000 square feet of stores and restaurants. The Shops at Greenridge is another shopping center where you’ll find many favorite chain outlets. If you’re looking for fine clothing boutiques, traditional hardware stores, health food markets, or diverse restaurants, you’ll find them at Augusta Road. The West End Market and Historic District is another neighborhood that’s home to unique shops, eclectic restaurants, and a theater.

Repairs

You probably depend on your car to get you to and from work, to go on vacations, and to run daily errands. So when something goes wrong, you need to get it fixed right away. Fisher’s Garage will get you back on the road again quickly. Located on Congaree Road, Fisher’s offers a full list of services, computer diagnostics, repairs, factory maintenance, oil changes, and more. These technicians are experts when it comes to cars and they have been serving loyal customers for more than 25 years, so they’re more than qualified to keep your car road-ready.
