There’s a lot to think about when hosting a wedding or party, from finding the perfect Greenville DJ to activities that visiting friends and family will love. Whether you’re looking for fun bonding opportunities with the ones you hold dear or a way to get out and explore the area yourself, we’ve put together a list that will share fun places in Greenville NC.
Celebrating and preserving 100 years of rural agricultural life, the Eastern Carolina Village & Farm Museum sits on five acres which contain a smokehouse, tobacco barn and museum, cabins, houses, a log church, blacksmith shop, stables, corn crib, general store, schoolhouse, and numerous antiques.
General admission to the Greenville Museum of Art is free, allowing you and your guests to easily enjoy the permanent and traveling exhibits featuring local, regional, and national artists. The permanent collection is historic, with work from the 19th and 20th century American arts. If you want to get involved, you can look into the different workshops and art classes which are available throughout the year. There are also a number of events that may be taking place during the time of your celebration.
If you want to take in some rural scenery (plus delicious locally grown produce), there are many farms and agricultural highlights in the area, including:
River Park North covers an impressive 324 acres of land plus just over a mile of the Tar River, making it a fantastic spot for nature lovers to visit. Visitors can enjoy hiking trails, picnic shelters with grills and tables, primitive and drive-to campsites, wildlife observation platforms, fishing boats for rent, a sand volleyball court, a fossil pit, and seasonal pedal boating. When following along the park’s birding trail, you may be lucky enough to spot Bald Eagles, Osprey, Indigo Bunting, Blue Grosbeak, Yellowthroat, wad-ing birds, wintering waterfowl, and more.
In addition to the land itself, the park offers visitors many educational opportunities through the Walter L. Stasavich Science and Nature Center, which is located on-site. The center has exhibits like a 10,000 gallon freshwater aquarium, live snakes, and a turtle touch tank.
If you’re looking for a different type of trail experience, you and your guests may want to consider the Pitt County Brew & ‘Cue Trail! This unique adventure involves picking up a “PassPork” as you embark on a tasty trail of local spots – choose BBQ, breweries, or both. Once you have visited each location in the order/pace of your liking and collected all the necessary official stamps, you can take your PassPork to the Visitors Center to get the final stamp along with your prize. Choose between a Pitt County Brew & ‘Cue Trail pint glass or t-shirt. Then have your photo taken for the Wall of Fame!
