For its size, Greenville has an atypically large number of activities. The Peace Center in downtown Greenville hosts national broadway shows that usually only come to cities several times larger. There are four independent theatres which put on several theatrical presentations a year.
Greenville is not a "college town" per se, but the students of both Furman University (in Greenville) and nearby Clemson University enjoy Greenville's downtown area for weekend entertainment. The streets of downtown are filled with people every weekend visiting the restauraunts, small shops, and bars.
Not to be confused with Greenville, NC, which is nothing but a college town filled with hicks.
