Greenville is the 10th best place to live in the U.S., according to Livability.com.
The website released its sixth annual ranking of the 100 Best Places to Live, and Greenville was one of two cities in the Carolinas to make the top 10.
Raleigh, North Carolina, came in at No. 2.
Livability’s description of Greenville begins, “There’s no getting around it: Greenville is having a moment.”
It goes on to tout Greenville’s variety of outdoor recreation options, the Greenville Zoo, Greenville Drive, and calls Greenville a “major foodie city.”
The rankings recommend exploring Greenville’s West End, taking a walk on the Liberty Bridge and enjoying a meal at Passarelle Bistro.
Livability’s list also names Birds Fly South, Joe’s Place bookstore and the Swamp Rabbit Trail as must-visit spots.
More than 1,000 cities with populations between 20,000 and 1,000,000 were ranked on 40 data points measuring economics, housing, amenities, infrastructure, demographics, social and civic capital, education and health care, according to Livability.
The top city on the list was Boise, Idaho.
Four other cities in the Carolinas made the list. Asheville was 14, Charlotte 21, Durham 23 and Greensboro 51.
