The Greenville area features a unique blend of town and country. There are beautiful rural countrysides, lakes, rivers, streams, state parks and game lands to enjoy. However, the area’s close proximity to metropolitan areas allows the residents to have the best of both worlds. Superb shopping, professional sports teams, cultural events, a vast variety of dining options, and more make the perfect ingredients for exciting day trips. Local residents feel safe in this small, family-oriented community because of its comfortable lifestyle and low crime rate. Greenville offers superior educational, recreational and cultural amenities usually found in much larger communities.
Furthermore, our local area boasts the following assets:
- Excellent quality of life.
- A growth-oriented community with a small-town atmosphere.
- Conveniently located to both Pittsburgh and Cleveland.
- Top hotels, inns and centers to host meetings within a short drive.
- Natural beauty with scenic parks, placid lakes and gently rolling hills.
