Greenville is widely recognized as the cultural, educational, economic, and medical hub of Eastern North Carolina. While retaining our Southern charm, Greenville has grown into the 10th largest city in the state and is now a thriving, small metropolitan city of more than 90,000 in the heart of Pitt County with a population of nearly 175,000 residents.
Greenville is a growing university-medical community, home to the renowned East Carolina University and world-class Vidant Medical Center, along with a strong industrial community. Greenville is also an accommodating event and leisure destination with an expanding Greenville Convention Center Campus, and a vibrant Uptown Greenville District with its own diverse art, music, food, and festival scene featuring an increasing number of unique, locally-owned businesses, galleries, shops, and restaurants.
Greenville can be found in the center of Pitt County, along the beautiful Tar River in Eastern North Carolina’s Inner Banks, approximately 85 miles east of the state capital of Raleigh and 87 miles west of the Atlantic Ocean. Our area’s numerous waterways offer opportunities for boating, kayaking, fishing, hiking, camping, and birding. Our community is also fortunate to have one of the most extensive recreation and greenway systems in the region, including 324 acre River Park North, the Greenville Town Common, and Greenville Greenway System, which visitors and residents can enjoy during all four seasons every year thanks to our relatively mild climate.
With nearly 300 years of history and culture, visitors can find museums, historic sites, unique architecture, and artifacts that tell the story of Greenville-Pitt County from before the American Revolution up to the present day.
Our excellent affordability, geographic location, and natural resources, combined with our cultural, economic, educational, and medical amenities make Greenville-Pitt County a preferred destination for business, sports, and leisure travelers, and a wonderful place to live, work, and play!
