As summer comes to a close, it won’t be long before there is a nip in the air and color on the trees. Sounds like a perfect time for a road trip and Greenville, South Carolina is a great destination! It is the cultural and entertainment center for the upstate, and includes an award winning downtown, a major performing arts center, nationally recognized museum collections, and 39 parks, playgrounds and recreation centers.
Darlington boasts a great group of alumni and friends in the Greenville area. We asked our Tiger Chapter members to share with us all the “insider” places to visit when you are in town.

Tiger Chapters are groups of Darlington friends and families (alumni, parents, and grandparents) in areas where there are a concentration of interested Darlington people and leadership. We kicked off the first two chapters last fall in Birmingham, Al. and Greenville, S.C.
