Local Guide: Tyler Center

I have lived in Greenville my entire life, and I cannot imagine growing up anywhere else. I have seen first hand how Greenville has grown, and how our little town has turned into a city full of opportunity.  I love going downtown on a Sunday afternoon for brunch, and just taking in the sights and sounds of Greenville. I enjoy working out, running, and trying new restaurants/bars with friends.  I love how there is always something new and exciting happening in our city! – Tyler Center @guysguide_

Favorite Outdoor Spots:

One City Plaza:

One City Plaza sits in the heart of downtown Greenville; it is home to many great shops, restaurants, and businesses.  I love it because it has a different vibe when I go to a restaurant there or up to Sip; from the Plaza I feel like I am transported.  It has such a peaceful yet vibrant feel, especially on a warm weekend afternoon.  You might find some live music from various local musicians, or you might run into a friend doing some shopping at Anthropologie or grabbing a bite to eat at Tupelo Honey.

Pretty Place:

Pretty Place Chapel is a not so secret chapel in the mountains of Greenville.  I have been going to Pretty Place for about 5 years now, and every time I go I stand amazed by the beauty of where we live.  Only about an hour from the heart of Greenville, Pretty Place is a breathtaking chapel housed in YMCA Camp Greenville.  While Pretty Place has gained popularity through the years, its beauty has remained constant and steadfast.  Whether you go at sunrise or in the middle of the day you are sure to get some beautiful pictures and create even better memories.

Favorite Healthy Spot:

Southern Pressed:

If you want to enjoy something sweet, yet don’t want to worry about the calories; you should probably pay a visit to Southern Pressed Juicery.  My favorite thing on the menu is the Bees Knees energy bowl.

Favorite Family Brunch:

Halls Chophouse:

There is simply not a better place (in my opinion) to enjoy a nice relaxing brunch in town then at Halls Chophouse.  On Sunday there is a fantastic live band, and the views of the Reedy River are second to none.  If you like shrimp & grits Hall’s offers some of the best, and don’t miss out on their Eggs Benedict or French toast.  Lastly, no brunch would be complete without a signature mimosa or Bloody Mary; both go great with anything on the menu. 

Favorite Flavorful Eats:

Tsunami:

I have been going to Tsunami for what seems like forever, the staff is always so accommodating, the food is always delicious, and the atmosphere is perfect for a date night, or just a fun night out with friends.  If you like sushi the city roll is the best in town. 

Sabroso Mexican Grille:

There are few things better in life than a margarita and some chips & salsa, Sabroso’s offers a variety of margaritas, as well as a selection of other cocktails that pair perfectly with their mesquite grilled quesadillas.
