Greenville is a perfect city to walk and bike to just about everywhere, except the zoo. There is the occasional bike traffic. When you can’t walk somewhere and need to drive (i.e.,the zoo), there is plenty of parking available inside the Main Street area and outside.
Saturday is one of the best times of the week to explore Greenville because of the city's Saturday Market on Main Street.
Greenville’s Saturday Market is only open May through October.
Children 2 and under can visit the Greenville Zoo for free.
What to do in Greenville with kids? Enjoy a Saturday outdoors and explore Greenville, South Carolina’s small-town flair and local adventures. Savor the fresh organic produce and handmade offerings at Greenville’s Saturday Market before eating brunch at Nose Dive, one of the most kid-friendly restaurants in town. Then, go out to Falls Park to look at the waterfalls and talk to the ducks. Finish the day visiting all the farm animals and baby animals in the Greenville Zoo. It’s the perfect size to entertain kids before they get bored. And, if your kids are not tired after all that, the zoo’s playgrounds are still another chance to drain their energy before dinner time! With parks and benches to rest your feet and countless fun water features throughout your city walk, there’s always something more to discover as you walk to your next destination!
