Downtown Greenville has developed into a dining/entertainment destination. With over sixty restaurants and pubs centered around Main Street, Greenville's Downtown offers the greatest concentration of dining options in the entire Upstate area. From April through September, weekly concerts ranging from folk to jazz entertain visitors three nights a week while larger Downtown celebrations mark the coming of each new season. With almost 200 event days a year, Greenville leads the region in hosting visitors. The two RV Gypsies really liked this area.

The state flag of South Carolina
The state flag of South Carolina was officially adopted in 1861. It has a white crescent and a white palmetto tree on a blue ground. Three white crescents (on a blue background) were first used on a South Carolina banner protesting the Stamp Act in 1765.
In 1775, Colonel William Moultrie designed a banner for South Carolina troops; it had a white crescent on a blue field. When South Carolina seceded from the Union, the palmetto tree was added to the flag. The palmetto tree was chosen because this tree had helped South Carolinians defeat the British in a battle at Sullivan's Island (during the Revolutionary War). The South Carolinians built a fort out of palmetto wood, and when the British fired cannonballs at the fort, instead of knocking the fort down, the soft palmetto wood just absorbed the cannonballs.
