The Tropical Grille recently opened another location on North Main Street in Mauldin in its most ambitious location – by renovating a historic brick building and adapting it for a restaurant. It features Charleston style earthquake bolts and an interior bracing frame to create a solid building.
Take in a minor league baseball game if you’re ever in Greenville, South Carolina. The Greenville Drive are a Boston Red Sox affiliate with a championship just last year. The Charleston River Dogs were in town taking on the Greenville Drive on this day. Interesting fact, Bill Murray (Ghost Busters, Caddyshack, Stripes, SNL just to name a few.) is part owner in the Charleston River Dogs and grew up not far from where I use to live in Illinois. Iconic funny man you just have to love. I love the fact that kept the old town flare going along the mile walk down the street to the Reedy Falls. One of the best cities I have ever visited.
Two cranes are now at work along North Markley Street in the West End. One is still building the Homewood Suites and the most recent crane will build Markley Place.
South Carolina’s Table Rock State Park has some great hikes inside it. This was taken on the short Carrick Creek Loop Trail that has a number of waterfalls and cascades along the short 2 mile hike. A very beautiful spot in the forest!

Electric carts are a convenient way to get around quiet city streets.
