FIND YOURSELF IN GOOD COMPANY
Located about an hour and a half from Raleigh and an hour and a half from the Ocean, Greenville, NC is the fastest growing city in eastern North Carolina and one of the fastest growing cities in the entire state. Home to East Carolina University, it has become a hub of young talent along the east coast. What just a few years ago was rural farm land has quickly developed into a vibrant community for both local businesses and larger corporations. However, in the midst of the rapid progress, Greenville has still managed to maintain the quaint charm of a small town.
An epicenter for activity in the east, Greenville is just a short drive from a broad range of exciting activities and relaxing environments. Greenville itself isn’t short on fun, however. An energetic nightlife, family fun day-time activities, and a wide variety of shops and restaurants punctuate the flavor of this growing city.
