A “small” city with “big” sights.

Gods beauty here in Greenville!

Visiting some friends here in Greenville, South Carolina for a couple of days and needed some things to do to kill time. Actually, my daughters needed some things to do to kill time.  I heard about the Greenville zoo and that it was a good way to make a couple of hours pass by.  I was not expecting much…but I was shocked
(good way) at the quality of the zoo and the types of animals they have.  The Greenville zoo has your obligatory snakes, giraffes, gators, birds, but also has animals you may not even have heard of (do you know what a “Rhea” is).  More pics coming from the Greenville zoo BUT in the meantime, I think this Lion pic is a good preview.

We also visited the Falls Park at Reedy and it was absolutely beautiful.  I was told it was man made and if so, I believe every city should make something like this.  With a modern bridge that crosses a fountain like area, the family and I easily spent a couple of hours here feeding the wildlife (geese, ducks, swans, etc) and enjoying the scenery.  There is quite a few things happening all at the same time from Shakespeare at the Park, line dancing, and even a band.  Great job city of Greenville!
