Top 5 Cold Weather Activities in Greenville

Jan 12, 2017 | News


With the recent snow storm, now is the time to take full advantage of Greenville’s winter activities. But you better hurry before temps rise to the 60s again!

1. Attend a Local Hockey Game

Our very own Swamp Rabbits hockey team plays from October through April at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. Individual and family tickets can be found on the Swamp Rabbit Hockey Team website.

2. Ice Skating Downtown

Hockey not your thing, but you and your family like to skate? Then go to the Ice on Main for family ice skating in downtown Greenville.

3. Hit the Gym

Research from the ADAA (Anxiety and Depression Association of America) shows that not only is exercise vital for maintaining stress levels, but that working out in the winter months also helps stay mood swings and depression.

Many local gyms offer discounts this time of year. Here are some new fitness centers to try out:

  1. Cycle Bar Recently Opened in Downtown
  2. New UFC Inspired Gym
  3. Gold’s Gym Builds Fitness Center in Greer

4. Visit a Bookstore

If reading quietly indoors is more your style, then visit one of the many local bookstores. With colder, shorter days upon us now is the best time to curl up with a good book and wait out the winter.

Joe’s Place Bookstore (640 S Main St Suite 101B, Greenville)

Need a cup of coffee or tea to warm you up? Here are Alpha’s recommendations on where to get a great cup of joe:

West End Coffee Shop (1021 South Main Street, Greenville)
Figs Beanery and Creamery (200 N Main St, Anderson)
Coyote Coffee Cafe (1035 S Pendleton St, Easley)

5. Attend a Local Winter Event

There are many different events and activities in Greenville each year. You can find a list of after-holiday activities on the Kidding Around Greenville website.

The cold weather and snow don’t last long around here! So get out there enjoy the winter season while you can.
