OK so maybe Furman isn’t a big name college, and maybe the Palladins don’t come up in sports discussions all that often, but one thing Furman does have going for it, is a lovely campus.
Local residents are known to swing by for a walk around the lake, or on the nature trail, taking in some very scenic views of the campus and the mountains.
And, over the Memorial Day weekend, folks flock to Furman for the Gallabrae, Scottish Games.
Yup, right smack in the middle of downtown Greenville is Falls Park, home of the Falls of the Reedy River.
Seriously, this is right smack in the middle of downtown, you can sit at a restaurant or coffee shop and watch the waterfall.
Oh and there’s also a path that takes you from Falls Park over about a mile to Cleveland Park, where the Greenville Zoo is located. It is part of the longer Swamp Rabbit Trail. So, we would occasionally make a day of it. Spend the morning at the zoo, then hike over to the Falls for some lunch at Fords Oyster House, Nosedive, or some other cool place downtown, maybe ice cream at Kilwyn’s or a cupcake from the Chocolate Moose, then hike on back to the car. This I will definitely miss!
