By Sponsored Content, April 21, 2018

Greenville, SC takes the trophy when it comes to creating an all-around experience, and lately, everyone seems to be declaring Greenville a winner. Recently ranked the “#2 Best Place to Travel in 2018 (In the World)” by Travel + Leisure, you have all the reasons in the world to think seriously about Greenville.

Greenville’s central Southeast location in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, along with world-class facilities like the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, have made it a sports magnet for events including the upcoming 2018 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods. Its friendly four-season climate, award-winning and walkable downtown, and countless opportunities for fun on and off the court, field or course put Greenville front and center on the sports map.
