So what’s wrong with a little shameless self-promotion, especially if it’s true? VisitGreenvilleSC.com, the folks behind the the campaign, “Yeah, That Greenville,” have put together a missive about why “Greenville, SC might just be the hottest city in America right now.” Published on the Matador Network, the article by John Weirick lists the reasons Greenville, S.C. is the Greenville everyone’s talking about–among them, craft beer and coffee; free, excellent entertainment; quality food; abundant art, music and performance; and ample outdoor attractions in the city and nearby. Furman gets a nod for its summer Music by the Lake Concert Series, which has entertained Greenvillians for nearly 50 years.
