Winter is a slow tourism season in Greenville, South Carolina, but the city offers plenty of winter charm and fun activities. Leading up to the holidays, Greenville is a perfect place to shop for locally made gifts, enjoy Christmas lights and a parade, and pick out the perfect live Christmas tree. During January, explore the local food scene through Greenville Restaurant Week or spend a day indoors enjoying the area's breweries and distilleries. Greenville can have surprisingly mild winter weather, making it possible to enjoy the city's trails or head just outside the city to tackle more demanding trails such as Table Rock.
