There is no admission fee. We welcome your visit. What you find may surprise you!”
“RMSC features an arboretum, butterfly garden, astronomical observatory, hall of natural science, hall of physical science, living history farm, nature trails, and planetarium. Note, this is a facility of Greenville County Schools, so most weekdays are for school instruction. However, they are open on every 2nd Saturday of each month (all activities) and on Friday evenings for Starry Nights (observatory and planetarium events).”
“Great way to see downtown Greenville - on a Segway. Learn about some of the history and enjoy a gliding around. These guys do a good job, and Segways are easy to learn even if you haven't ridden one before. ”

“The patio of the Hyatt Regency Greenville hotel facing Main Street, NOMA (NOrth MAin) Square is one of the largest public plazas in downtown Greenville, and hosts a regular schedule of free outdoor events. Dog fanciers favor the second Wednesday of the month (March through November), when they can bring their canine companions to the square for Yappy Hour. Live music, yummy Yappetizer specials from the Hyatt’s Roost Restaurant, and complimentary pup-tinis are on tap—as is a cash bar.”
