Greenville’s breweries, restaurants and GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail have garnered some snark-filled attention from the New York Post.

The article titled “This surprising Deep South town is shedding its gritty past” straddles the line between actual reporting and opining as only the Post can do. After noting some of the lesser attractive Greenville attributes – the “creepy clown weirdos last year,” along with “what it’s been doing so well these past few years: gentrifying” – writer Chris Bunting concludes, “Greenville’s done an exhaustive job dolling up its north/south-split main drag with boutique shops, exotic eateries, craft beer bars, performance spaces, a no-joke distillery, a Segway livery stable — all magically preventing the town’s official (and easily derisible) tourism tagline ‘Yeah, THAT Greenville’ from skewing sarcastic.”

Bunting categorizes Greenville features as Must See (M. Judson Booksellers & Storytellers, Poppington’s Gourmet Popcorn and the Greenville Drive!); Must Eat (Tandem Creperie, BBQ Trail Tour with John Nolan and American Grocery); Must Stay (Aloft Greenville Downtown); and What’s New (Grand Bohemian Hotel, Husk Restaurant, Jianna and all the new breweries).
