Greenville's Magnificent Mile

View Larger Map
I propose the name "The Magnificent Mile" for the portion of Greenville's Main Street from the West End Field to the Hyatt Regency. This is an inspired suggestion. As a native of Chicago, born and educated there, I have walked many times up and down Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago. It was dubbed the Magnificent Mile because of the many prestigious restaurants, stores, new and historic buildings, views of the Lake Michigan, and hotels that lined the avenue. I have lived in Greenville since 2000 and I consider it my home. Like Chicago's Magnificent Mile, Greenville's Magnificent Mile in just this short one mile stretch also has fine restaurants, Piazza Bergamo and Court Square, City Hall, the Peace Center, views of the Reedy River and Reedy Falls Park's Liberty Bridge, fine hotels (the Hyatt and historic Westin Poinsett), and a new baseball stadium. Show me another downtown that has so much in so little a distance. Let's hear it for Greenville's own Magnificent Mile!!

(This does not have anything to do allergies, but we had a nice walk downtown yesterday and it is MY blog ;-)If you want to learn more about South Carolina through websites of all types, go to South Carolina Blogs at Sciway.
