Greenville Visitors Guide

Greenville is located just 45 miles northeast of the Dallas/Fort Worth area in the heart of East Texas. Home to over 26,000 residents, Greenville offers a variety of shopping and dining opportunities that range from major national names to one-of-a-kind restaurants and boutiques. Shop for the latest fashions and home furnishings at The Calico Cat, then sit back and enjoy a glass of wine at the local winery, Landon. If you have a sweet tooth, be sure to taste the award-winning berry custard pie from Ain’t Just Pie.

Arts and entertainment abound in Greenville. The lovingly restored Texan Theatre provides an intimate setting for dinner and a show with top national artists. The 1,700-seat, Art Deco inspired Greenville Municipal Auditorium is home to concerts, plays, dance and The Dallas Symphony. If local music is your scene, try The Corner Pub or Blue Mesquite Grill.

For the visual art lover, Greenville is home to several local artists, ranging from folk to funk. As part of the Hunt County Arts Project, 2 unique murals are being created on local businesses downtown, each inspiring a nod to the heritage of Hunt County. Throughout Downtown Greenville, you will find artist studios tucked away in historic buildings; and if you want to express your creativity, be sure to visit Downtown Art Party and walk away with your own personal creation.

We are also proud of our heritage. Explore 1 of 6 Downtown locations on the National Register of Historic Places or discover the life of the most decorated soldier of World War II at the Audie Murphy American Cotton Museum. You can discover a bygone era by retracing the path of the historic Bankhead Highway, the country’s first transcontinental highway that took motorists right through Greenville.
