CVBs & Sports Commissions Sponsored Content December 2015 124 hen people talk about Greenville, SC—and these days a lot of people are—the conversation typically begins with our award-winning downtown. Named "One of America's Top Ten Downtowns" by Forbes Maga- zine, and home to an amazing collection of shops, restaurants, hotels, art galleries, theaters and more, it's really not surpris- ing that Greenville and its attractions get so much attention. But for those with an inclination toward sports, recreation and the outdoors—downtown Greenville is just the beginning. We'veGotThePerfectVenueville! From professional cycling to collegiate lacrosse and baseball to soccer tourna- ments and swim meets, Greenville's superb athletic facilities will make your event the best ever. One look at the 60-acre MeSA Athletic Complex, the newly completed Lake Conestee Baseball Park, the brand new Westside Aquatic Complex or the West End's Fluor Field is all it will take to convince you—but there's so much more to discover. The natural beauty of Greenville County is more than a pretty face—it's an athletic paradise. When you add lakes, rivers and trails that exist around Green- ville County, tournament fishing and mountain biking join the list of possibili- ties. And with large indoor facilities like our 15,000-seat Bon Secours Wellness Arena and our 368,000-square-foot TD Convention Center, wrestling, martial arts, basketball and a whole host of indoor sports come into focus. Both facilities offer abundant parking, and are just a stone's throw from the heart of downtown. Couple all of those capabilities with 8,500 hotel rooms, 600 restaurants and a broad array of attractions—all wrapped up in a climate boasting more than 220 days of sunshine each year—and it's clear that Greenville deserves a place in your consideration set. The truth is Greenville is the perfect venue for just about any outdoor activity you can imag- ine. Hiking, boating, kayaking, rowing, orien- teering, white water raft- ing, archery, shooting… well, you're beginning to get the picture. Green- ville is an indoor/outdoor playground featuring some of the most spec- tacular fields, facilities and amenities in the Southeast. These are just a few reasons for you to come and experience it all for yourself. It'sInJustTheRightSpotville! Greenville is as easy to reach as it is to enjoy. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville is centrally located between Atlanta and Charlotte on Interstate 85. TheyWereAllSoNiceville!
