My three children have all graduated from ECU and I've worked at the Brody School of Medicine for over 20 years. This university provides a excellent educational experience for all degrees. Student life is varied and robust. Their motto "Servire" means to serve and it is integrated throughout all parts of the university. I love this place!

River Park North

Reviewed By robertmaster123 - martinsville, nj

Nice place. Lots to do. You can fish, walk, rent a kayak and there is a museum. We walked around. I was a little disappointed that I didn't see more wildlife. Didn't see any exotic birds like herons. Didn't see any turtles or frogs. However a pleasant place and I would go back.

Greenville Convention Center

Recently attended a business conference at the Greenville Convention Center. The facility is very accommodating and can also handle outdoor patio receptions and indoor dinner banquets. The facility is clean and conveniently located next to the Hilton Hotel with overhangs between the buildings to guard from rain and sun.

Heard good things and wasn't disappointed. Had a Cranberry Apple Cider that I enjoyed and then a flight of 4 beers of my choosing. Really enjoyed the coffee porter. There are about 8 options, so there should be something for just about any beer lover. Bar was spacious and there were some tables as well as couches and chairs for a more relaxed setting. I will be back.

Don't miss a visit to this delightful place, great for all ages. It's a former home so the piano is still in the living room. Wander on and find art from the eastern part of NC hanging in several galleries. There are frequent events and exhibit openings for adults as well as the younger folk. We found a friendly, interesting staff person who told us interesting facts that we otherwise would not have learned
Next door is an art education building with different programs, lessons and summer camp. No admission, contributions are welcome.

Alice F. Keene Park

Reviewed By zetaspeechlady - Greenville, North Carolina

Many youth recreational games (football, soccer, baseball) are held here. Area afterschool and summer programs use this park as a field trip too. They have HUGE fields that allow 6-10 games to be played at one time. There's also a walking trail for exercising, fundraiser benefits, walking pets, or riding bikes. They have 2 playground areas as well as nearby benches for parents to monitor their children. We always enjoy coming here to play.

A small brewery located in a urban, hip, newly renovated building in Uptown Greenville along the Dickinson Avenue Corridor offering several home brewed lagers, IPAs, ciders, and more. Try the Ruinenlust if you like IPAs. Their raspberry beers are great too.

Bagwell Field at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium

Reviewed By Levon M - Cary, North Carolina

The Stadium itself is nice. However, the amenities are not up to the capacity of the stadium. We were seated in to upper section and either had to walk up a long series of ramps or stairs or else wait on a single very slow elevator. 2 elevators were available for the club seats with only a fraction of the seating capacity. On the upper concourse the concession stands had 20-25 min waits most of the day. Plus the concourse was way too small for the number of people. Parking in the vicinity is not good for people with season tickets and almost non-existent for visitors. The recent expansion of seating capacity was simply not met by expansion of the amenties needed.

The Venue

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

When we walked in we were greeted by several very friendly people. As we walked around we saw a lot of antiques, painted furniture, artwork and hand-made gifts by local artists, and a lot of re-purposing of many different items. The place is very well organized and clean. I loved looking at everything but the only thing I walked out with was some butterscotch dipped peanuts that were awesome.
