Write the Story of Your Life
The Community - Greenville, NC
Some places have what it takes to help write the story of your life, to help you create and live your life to the fullest: opportunities, people and experiences that open minds and doors; activities that enrich and entertain. Places so welcoming that you feel you're in the presence of family and friends, and that everywhere you turn, you find yourself in good company. Greenville is that place.
Located just inland off the North Carolina coast, East of I-95, over 20 parks grace the landscape of Greenville and Pitt County. So if you're an outdoor enthusiast, you'll find enough adventure and scenic beauty here to fill up the canvas of your days, and plenty of like-minded people who share your respect for the grandeur of nature, the intoxicating fragrance of our Magnolia trees, picnicking under the shade of oaks, fishing at sundown, or hiking down a path that leads you not to the trail's end, but to the conclusion that this is where you belong.
