Downtown Greenville

Just the other weekend my husband and I made a weekend trip to South Carolina to visit my cousins and their sweet husbands.  

Here's a few highlights from our Saturday afternoon spent in Downtown Greenville...

We made a stop at a beautiful little cafe called Luna Rosa. The service was wonderful and if it hadn't been a chilly December afternoon I'm sure we would have followed our meal with scoops of their gelato- it looked so sweet and delicious! Next trip, if it's warm weather, I'm making a point to try their Strawberry Shortcake Gelato. 

I thought this mug was just about the coolest coffee mug ever with it's shape and handy grip. Very IKEA in my opinion.

My cousins- they are gracious southern women. 

After lunch we hit the town walking again. 

They have one of the most beautiful parks I've ever seen right there in the city. I liked it even more than Central Park in NYC.  And the best part about it is that's it's a completely revitalized park. It was once a questionable park, a place you wouldn't want to be after dark. But now it's a charming place to be, revitalized and abuzz with locals out for an afternoon at the park. 

There is definitely a great artsy vibe in Downtown Greenville, including this little area on a side of a building that looked simply meant for photographs. 

What are your favorite southern cities? I definitely want to discover some more!

I love your cute outfit! It looks like you had a wonderful time. I agree with you about the mug, cute and looks like Ikea. Jeff & I went to Savannah in the spring and LOVED it. You should definitely put it on your list. We also loved Charleston too but haven't had a chance to explore it as much. You should try Cha Bella (

Thanks, I was trying to bundle was chilly downtown but totally worth it!
We like Charleston too, but like you said we also haven't had much of a chance to explore it yet.
I'll check out your southern travel recommendation of Savannah and Cha Bella!

Did you find out about the 'Mice on Main? Throughout the downtown area, they have little brass mice. One is sitting by a fountain, one is up on top of a storefront door, etc. It is fun to look for them. I love downtown Greenville! Used to go to school there and Greenville was a high crime area. It has been totally revitalized!
