From Maltese to Mastiffs, Greenvillians are dog-wild for their canine companions. Just take a look downtown, and you’ll see pups with their peeps strolling through Falls Park on the Reedy, on Main Street, along RiverPlace, and everywhere in-between. Your pampered pet can find gourmet treats in a variety of shops downtown and beyond, and can fetch a drink at water bowls set outside many of the retailers along Main Street. When hunger sets in, the city offers more outdoor restaurant patios that welcome well-behaved pooches than you can shake a stick at, so there’s no excuse not to bring your best furry friend along for an al fresco meal.
Outdoor spaces abound in Greenville, beginning with Falls Park on the Reedy, a great place to see the falls while your four-legged friend checks out all the new sights and smells. From the park, you can pick up the 23-mile Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail. Beyond downtown, hiking trails thread the area’s many state parks reaching north into the Blue Ridge foothills. Pick an easy, flat trail or, if you and your pup are up to it, challenge yourself to a steeper climb and take in the sweeping mountain views.
Let the pups stay with you or send your fur-baby on vacation while you’re on vacation. Check out our insider's guide on where to take your dog in pet-friendly Greenville—from their own hotel to dog-friendly events, restaurants, shops, and more!
