Where to stay in Greenville

Greenville's main street is home to a few historical hotels with elegant lobbies and rooms that recall the opulence of the early 20th century. Chain hotels with both standard rooms and suites are scattered throughout the city and near the airport. To be close to nature without sacrificing the city, consider a lodge or cabin in one of the nearby national parks.

  • Super cute zoo. Very small but it is cute. Love the layout of it. Everything was sleeping today when we went but it is nice to go to small one like this where it isn't so crowded all the time. The park outside of it amazing, kids love it. The best and most interesting animal was probably the ant eater.
  • Awesome little zoo. The price is great for what you get. You can make it through the whole thing in a couple of hours and still feel like you got your money's worth. If the kiddos still have some energy there is a pretty cool park right there in the same parking lot.
  • It's a small zoo (about a mile from start to finish) but with an interesting variety of animals. Highlights for little ones are usually the giraffes, jungle cats (lions, jaguars, ocelots), reptile/insect house, and the gibbons. When they are on exhibit the orangutans are also a hit. Great gift shop and the playgrounds inside and in front of the zoo make for a fun morning or afternoon out with the family.
  • I love just taking my family here and walking around for them to see the animals. The visits are usually great, the only thing with this visit was it was somewhat hot that day and after I paid for the visit; the attendant just happened to mention that being hot some of the animals may not be at the exhibit. It would have been nice to know this before I paid and not after.
  • Love zoos in general, though this one is on the small side. Has a park adjacent to take your kids to after a small walk. Definitely a good Saturday afternoon activity for the family on a budget.
