Hello you cuties, it’s been a hot minute. We’re jumping back in with Emily Cole + @emilycatherinecole of Greenville, SC “I moved from Ireland to Greenville, SC in 2013. Yes, I love it here and I love it even more as it continues to develop! I am commonly mistaken for Meghan Trainor. I had a failed Youtube career but a slightly successful indie music career. I have been to 13 different countries and have lived in 8 different countries. I know most basic white girls say this, but I really am Jess from New Girl. Last but definitely least, I have the sense of humor of a 50 year old dad.
Our city is not too much and not too little. It's the perfect place for someone who enjoys city life but also adores the mountains and being surrounded by trees. Our waterfall that runs through the heart of Greenville is one of the many things that makes this place unlike any city you have been to!” Ahh! Good to be back,
EMILY COLE @emilycatherinecole
Hi! My name is Emily Catherine Cole! I'm beyond excited to show you around Greenville, South Carolina! Music is a big part of my life, so of course our first stop is at the lovely @Horizonrecords! I only recently discovered this gem thanks to @kathryndeephoto! You walk in and you are instantly met with such happy vibes! It's connected to a cute little cafe, so when you visit, stay a little while, grab some coffee and explore. This is a fantastic place to find vinyls from your favorite new artist, or to pick up a classic or two! I myself, grabbed a @leonbridgesofficial vinyl from the wall, when I was there! What vinyl would you pick up, if you were here? @emilycatherinecole
Next stop on our tour is Persecuted Tattoo! Four of my six tattoos are from @justinwalker_tattoo, he is one of the incredible artists of the tattoo shop. This is by far the best and friendliest shop in Greenville and the guys are chill and will work hard to make your ink dreams come true! I've never met a person unhappy with their art work from them! My next post will be a photo of some of his work, be on the lookout! If you could get any tattoo right now, what would it be? 📷:@kathryndeephoto @emilycatherinecole
This is my second and favorite tattoo! I had been dreaming of this, for three years! I told my friend the concept, she painted it using watercolors, I brought it to @justinwalker_tattoo and BAM! My Dream ink, became a reality! It came out better than I could have hoped! What's your favorite tattoo style? @emilycatherinecole
The Liberty suspension Bridge is located in the heart of Downtown Greenville, just downstream from a group of waterfalls. It replaced a six-lane highway bridge that was demolished to improve the visibility and accessibility to the falls and adjacent park. The bridge has a curved clear span over the river that curves away from the falls. It is the most perfect place to get a great view of the waterfall! A great place for an engagement too! Just saying! @emilycatherinecole
This is by far my favorite thing about our city! Also the great news is that it costs nothing, to soak up the beauty of the falls! We have a river that runs throughout the Downtown Greenville, setting it apart from many other cities! We also have the most gorgeous trails running alongside the water. During the summer, once a month we have Shakespeare in the park! I was a drama geek in high school, so this place is a dream for me! The waterfall and walking bridge are the staples and pride of our downtown! But don't just take my word for it, come see for yourself! @emilycatherinecole
Who's hungry now? I am! My favorite crepé place, Tandem! They have the most gorgeous interior! You are met instantly with the friendliest and minimalist stylish baristas and cooks, when you walk in! It's a welcoming environment and it's bustling with people! You can't come to Greenville and not go to Tandem! Also it's my birthday so make sure you like this photo and head on over to my page @emilycatherinecole and follow me! 📷: @tandem_cc
Next stop is a place I absolutely adore going to! Our Greenville Humane Society is the best one, I've ever been to and it's one of the largest no-kill shelters in the South East (that's neat!)! Anytime of the day you go there and it's packed with people! They have so many young volunteers there, taking care of the sweet animals. The kids have the biggest smiles on their faces and are beyond happy to serve the community! Even if you can't bring a little buddy home, you can come and love on the animals anytime you want! Whenever I'm there, I send a ton of photos to my parents begging them to let me bring one home but alas they don't want me to bring more animals home, to our farm! My dream puppy is a corgi! What's your's? @emilycatherinecole
@furmanuniversity is one of the most gorgeous college campuses, I've ever been to. I'm always looking for good trails and parks, that are a safe and beautiful. Furman has the prettiest places for you to go on a walk! The university is very welcoming to visitors and you can meet some pretty neat people, while you are there! It's very peaceful and a wonderful place to clear your mind, to escape for a moment from busyness and to have a little reset. Plus, there's a Starbucks there so you can grab a coffee or tea, to enjoy while you walk! What's your favorite drink to have while enjoying a stroll? @emilycatherinecole
Lake Robinson is the perfect lake for kayaking in the summer! When one of my Best Friends and I first started hanging out. We would come out to this kayak spot and spend time laughing together and getting sunburned. The fantastic thing about the lake is that, there are absolutely no kayaking/fishing fees! Plan a summer trip to Greenville and make your way to Lake Robinson! Do you prefer a kayak or a canoe? @emilycatherinecole
Today is my last day with you guys! So sad! It's been a fantastic time! My last stop is @methodicalcoffee in downtown Greenville!
The second you walk in you feel awesome chill vibes. The whole coffee shop is designed to be simple and minimalistic. It's a place where you come when you want to have a moment to slow down and breathe. It's overflowing with natural lighting, which is my favorite! The atmosphere is filled with classic old vinyls that give the feel of reminiscing. If you are into cold brew, this is the place for you! They have the best cold brew around! @emilycatherinecole
Here's my last post friends! I really hope you enjoyed a glimpse into our cute city, Greenville! If you ever visit, let me know! Again, thank you for coming along on my tour! It's been a pleasure! If you want to keep up with me, follow my insta @emilycatherinecole!! Peace out for now homies! ✌🏽🖖🏽
