Get Going to Greenville On Your Own Charter Bus
Ride your Greenville charter bus brings you and your group to the historic city that has seen its share of battles and has risen from Civil War ruins to become a very progressive city and popular destination for tourists in a very small time. Downtown Greenville is in a word : beautiful.
Greenville, located in the Upcountry, was a declining mill town that in the past 20 years has reinvented itself as a thriving weekend tourist destination. Its wide, four-block Main Street retains its old-fashioned buildings and tree canopy, all of which your Greenville charter bus group will get to experience. Storefronts boast non-chain and specialty boutiques, restaurants, coffee houses and lounges. Offices and condos fill abandoned textile factories. At night, your charter bus group members can take a stroll on the Main Street and listen to live music beneath trees strung with miniature lights.
The atrophied Reedy River is cleaned and now edged by extensive landscaping lined with quiet walking trails. This is often a wonder for your charter bus group. There are numerous festivities located here in the warm months, Reedy River Park stages the evening Upstate Shakespeare Festival at an outdoor amphitheater. Fine-arts performances are offered riverside in the Peace Center if your charter bus group visits in the later afternoon or early evening, they are sure to catch something fun going on here.
History buffs amongst your charter bus group will be interested to see Cowpens National Battlefield (located about 15 minutes northeast of Greenville), which was the site of a major and morale-boosting victory by the Revolutionaries. The site signifies the successful use by the Colonists of a shoot-and-run tactic against the British Army's standard marching formation. Kings Mountain National Military Park was the site of another major Revolutionary War victory for the Patriots. Both these sites will delight members of your charter bus group.
The BMW Museum is one of the major attractions of Greenville for your charter bus group. It's actually located in the suburb of Greer and is next to the airport. Greenville Charter Bus group members can see the museum from Interstate 85. Factory tours are temporarily suspended due to refurbishing of the factory, but the outside of the factory can be toured at this time. There are a number of BMW cars, including James Bond's Z3 convertible that he used in several films. The number one question asked about the James Bond car is does it shoot missiles as it did in the film? The answer is no. Your charter bus group members can see BMW influences all over town. A visitor's center, with films highlighting BMW's "commitment to engineering and its neighboring communities" can be seen by your charter bus tour group.
